This full day tour combines the typical coastal villages like Zarautz, Getaria & Zumaia and the lovely mountain roads and views.

Zarautz: The strong marine tradition of whale hunting lasted here until the 16th century. Town exploring and beach walk.

Getaria the charming small fishing village and home of Juan Sebastian Elcano, the man who was first to sail around the world.
Discover the famous "Txakoli" local white wine vineyards along the coast placed as for a postcard. Amazing views and landscapes

Zumaia town; the green mountains abruptly meet the Atlantic Ocean! At this point of the coast, the mountains drop dramatically to sea level, with wonderful views and letting us observe the rough rock formations formed over millions of years.

Driving by old Basque farmhouses, narrow mountainous roads, small villages, sheeps and cows, we will discover the essence of the Basque Country! Explore Ernio and Izarraitz mountains, stunnning 360º views from the top, with no effort! I'll drive you to almost to the top!

Itinerary

--Zarautz: town exploring and beach walk. The strong marine tradition of whale hunting lasted here until the 16th century. The strong tradition of tourism began shortly after the summer stays of Queen Elizabeth II, so it is from the second half of the 19th century the true takeoff of Zarautz as a tourist destination began.

--The charming small fishing village of Getaria. Home of Juan Sebastian Elcano (Getaria 1487 to 1526) the man who was first to sail around the world. It is probably one of the most treasured medieval centers, which best reflects the passing of time.

--The place where the green mountains, abruptly meet the Atlantic Ocean! At this point of the coast, the mountains drop dramatically to sea level, with wonderful views and letting us observe the rough rock formations formed over millions of years.

--Mount Izarraitz. Driving by old Basque farmhouses, narrow mountainous roads, small villages, sheep and cows, we will discover the essence of the Basque Country!

A Recent Review of this tour

Iker took us on a beautiful day around San Sebastian and showed us a little of the different landmarks of the region. He always looked for our care and showed us stories, some of the locals' traditions and the amazing cuisine which they are proud of. We would recommend booking this for 2 or more days, so a more detailed plan can be drafted for you as 1 day isn't enough. Thanks Iker for a great day and the enriching experience. Manuel & Laura
