Discover the Bilbao surroundings on this full day shore excursion with a private guide


Experience the essence of the Basque Country on this tour especially designed for cruise passengers. We take you on a journey through the beautiful Basque landscape where you'll see some of the most stunning views, coastal villages and landmarks surrounding Bilbao. We also visit Gernika, former capital of the Basque Country, and visit a reproduction of Picassos famous painting.

A perfect mix of blue sea, green mountainous landscape and of course Bilbao's famous architecture including a delicious lunch with stunning coastal views at a traditional Basque restaurant.

Itinerary

Pick up in air conditioned car or minivan at the cruise ship terminal where our adventure begins. A short 20 minute scenic ride into Bilbao city center where we make a stop to admire the majestic Guggenheim Museum and the Nervión river side with its imposing buildings.

We then take a 30 minute ride out to the coast and stop for lunch at a height just outside of the fishing village of Bermeo where we find this hidden treasure: a traditional Basque restaurant with some of the most breath taking coastal views of the region.

After lunch we take a short walking tour through the old town and harbor of Bermeo, one of the last fishing villages of the Basque Country with an active fishing fleet, before making our last stop for the day in the nearby and historically important town of Gernika. Former capital of the Basque Country and tragically famous from the well known Picasso painting. Depending on departure time we might go to Gernika first and visit Bermeo and have lunch afterwards.

A Recent Review of this tour

Jakob, our tour guide in Bilbao, Spain, and surrounding Basque countryside, provided us with a most pleasant day. He was articulate; knowledgeable about the culture, history, and points of interest. He set a pace based upon our interests. We had a memorable day, and would wholeheartedly recommend Jakob to anyone traveling in this area.
