This is the first guidebook to bring together hikes and tours in the Basque Country, which runs east from Bilbão in Spain to Biarritz in France and takes in famous places like Pamplona and stages on the Camino de Santiago.
The entire Basque coast is mostly very rugged, with many thriving fishing towns and villages, plus the added attraction of splendid beaches. Inland the countryside is more mountainous, with lush green countryside.
Don’t miss the award-winning Guggenheim Museum in Bilbão, the Pilgrims’ Route to Santiago, the San Fermines fiestas at Iruña-Pamplona, or stunning coastal resorts like Donostia-San Sebastián and Biarritz. But most of all, explore the remote picture-postcard villages and lush mountainous countryside straddling both sides of the Pyrenees — preferably on foot.
Another great book in the blue bible series. Info is great and useful. (Big red bus, Amazon)
Excellent… Using this guide book really enhanced my walking holiday in the Basque Country, a region which has to be one of Europe’s best kept secrets. The practical details given are first class and the book is an essential
companion for anyone planning to visit the area. (Mr M, Amazon)
For the traveller with limited time but who wants to get to know the Basque Country beyond its cities, it’s hard to know what more you could reasonably ask for. I’ve lived in the area for decades and have used this guide to get to know some unfamiliar corners better… Excellent. (MW, Amazon)
