Tour description

Do you prefer amazing natural spots and cozy small historical villages rather than the chaos of big cities? Do you want to get to those places only some locals know about? Come on board our car and discover the amazing coast of Biscay!

There is much more than Guggenheim in Bilbao. Actually, for nature lovers and explorers, the best part of the region is outside the city of Bilbao, mainly on the coast. Out there, the lines of the hills end right before the sea, which creates amazing landscapes with Incredible cliffs, exciting beaches, beautiful villages, and fascinating spots. All those places are out there waiting for someone like you to pay them a visit.

The best part of it? Not even locals usually visit them. Many of them don't even know of the existence of some of these spots, so they are usually quiet, relaxing and lonely places. You will probably be the only tourist on them. Trust us, if you enjoy panoramic views and green rocky coasts, this will be one of the best free tours of your life!

We will visit the following places:

  • The Civil war Bunker and the lighthouse of Gorliz together with its amazing landscape.
  • An amazing view of San Juan de Gaztelugatxe.
  • The historical fishing village of Bermeo.
  • The historial village and ancient institutions of Gernika.

**Additionally, on the way from one place to another you will have the chance to see the incredible views of the cantabric sea and the biosphere reserve of the Urdaibai bay. There are some viewpoints along the road where we can stop, enjoy the landscape and take beautiful memorable pictures.

The tour will take aproximately the whole morning, 5 hours. It might seem as a lot of time at first, but I can guarantee that you won´t regret it.

The meeting and ending point of the tour will be at the entrance of the Faculty of Business of the University of the Basque Country in the neighbourhood of Sarriko (Facultad de Economía y Empresa de Sarriko).

Come and enjoy the fascinating coast of Biscay!

Please note:
- The tour is available with my car without extra cost.
- If you prefer, you can do the tour with your own vehicle.

We had an outstanding tour with Alvaro. He is kind, knowledgeable about the region and clearly loves his homeland. We enjoyed spending time with him as we experienced the natural environment of the northern coast and the unique character of a handful of fishing villages as well as a lovely view over San Juan de Gaztelugatxe. This is a calm and relaxed tour, a nice overview.

This was such a great tour! I did not know what to expect from it. I really did not know anything about the Bay of Biscay or Basque country overall. I learned a lot about Basque Country and culture and environs. It is rare that a tour takes you outside of the big cities to see how the locals actually live and this was perfect. The guide was also very knowledgeable and sociable. It was cool seeing the places, food, and drink of the locals.
