Explore the Pyrenees and the French Basque countryside with a private guide

It is considered the start point on the famous St. James Way, the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela.

Belonged to Navarra kingdom, the Basque language is still spoken on both sides of the border. Beautiful medieval town.

Charmy town of Bidarray, an off the track town in the countryside, drive along the famous Pass Du Roland to get to Espelette town.
Labourd style houses makes this town unique, as it's known for its dried red peppers hanging from their facades. Taste some of the typical products of the region!

It gathers all you were looking for, a (jai-alai) handball court alongside the church, and a cemetery full of the traditional disc-topped monuments, white and red houses.
The typical Basque village by far.

One of the most beautiful villages. Placed at the base of the first mountain in the Pyrenees mountain range, La Rhune, Sare is a major prehistoric site and has carefully preserved.

A Recent Review of this tour

We had a great day in the Basque countryside with Iker. He is very knowledgeable and personable and we visited places and saw things that just aren't in the normal tourist guides. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will back again one day to share more experiences with Iker.
