Cultural and gastronomical experiences around Fishermen and Cider tradition.
In this off the beaten track tour we are going to mix 2 great Basque passions: sea and cider
We will start visiting the Albaola's museum where a replica of San Juan whale hunter ship from XV century is being built at the moment with the same Technics used in year 1450. Something unique!
We will visit the beautiful town of Pasai Donibane located in the middle of a fjord, this town as many others in the Basque coast was from X century pioneer at the Whale chasing.
We will drive to the countryside, 15 km away there is the core of the Basque cider manufacturing: Astigarraga, where we can find 80% of Basque Sagardotegis (Cider Restaurants).
We will have the dinner at a traditional sidreria where you will enjoy the typical Basque food: Cod omelette, Fresh cod with ognion and green pepper, cow steak and cheese with quince sweet and nuts.
There is still no person alive that has left a Sagardotegi still hungry ;-)
