SAINT JEAN PIED DE PORT
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.

BIDARRAY AND ESPELETTE
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!

AINHOA
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.

SARE
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

Iker is a wonderful guide. He is informative, warm and entertaining. We thoroughly enjoyed our Basque Country Tour, it was exactly what we were looking for. We learned so much about the Basque people and culture. We experienced charming villages and beautiful scenery. We highly recommend Iker and this tour. I know he does several other tours which I'm sure are equally as good.
