Euskadi: Kaixo, north!

Green in the mountains, blue with touches of the white of the waves and titanium museums that change color. We are talking about culture, beaches, pintxos and txakoli, good people, biking and walking routes, world famous festivals and landscapes that inspire novels… If you are one of those who are looking to enjoy everything a little out of the conventional, this is your trip!

Bilbao, that city with an industrial past, which now shows itself proud and clean to the traveler, will be the starting point of our trip.

We will greet Puppy at the Guggenheim and sail along the estuary in a sailboat, ending the days with pintxos washed down with zuritos and txacolí.

By bicycle or on foot, we will enjoy the surroundings, the Aitzgorri mountain range, the Bidasoa greenway, the mystery novel landscapes of the Baztan Valley in Navarra, without leaving aside -it would not be possible! – the wineries of the Rioja Alavesa and the local gastronomy that will charge us with energy every day to continue the adventure to San Sebastian, the pearl of the Bay of Biscay.
