Experience it all in one day: Biarritz, San Juan de Luz and Zugarramurdi.


If you want to experience the essence of the Basque Country in just one day and in the most comfortable way possible. This is the excursion for you. A sightseeing tour in car or minibus that will take you around some of the most beautiful and scenic surroundings of the San Sebastián-Biarritz area and includes lunch at a traditional hillside restaurant with fantastic views.

We set out in the morning for the french part of the Basque Country where we visit beautiful Biarritz and San Juan de Luz before having lunch in the nearby mountains. On our way home we follow the old smugglers path and visit the pintoresque village of Zugarramurdi on the Spanish side where the witches and wizards were believed to carry out their masses and we can visit its famous cave and witch-museum if we like.

Depending on the time we finish off with a visit to San Sebastians own Mount Igueldo for an evening drink and of course to admire the view.

Also available for larger groups.
