Hello!! I am Borja and I am lucky enough to live in what I think is one of the most beautiful unknown regions in the world. I am 23 years old and I am currently in the final stage of my university studies, figuring out what will I do next. As you can see, I am an enthusiast of Biscay. I love driving my car through its incredible coastal roads to reach the most beautiful villages and viewpoints. I am constantly planning new excursions and adventures inside my region beacuse I never get tired of it, it is simply impossible. If you want to share some of that entusiasm for this amazing area just come on board and enjoy!

About the Tour

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 my old grey ugly 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 me, 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.

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: I will be at the entrance of the Faculty of Business in Sarriko with a white hat and a blue shirt.

We spontaneously booked a tour with Borja to explore the outskirts of Bilbao. The tour was very fun, the atmosphere was very relaxed and Borja brought us to some beautiful spots which we would definitely not have found on our own. We would recommend this tour to anyone seeking some nature but not in the form of a hiking tour!

Borja planeó un recorrido que refleja el cariño que le tiene a la costa de Bizcaya. Es un road trip muy ameno, visitando 7 destinos en la región y en la que nos comparte un poco de la historia, el contexto sociopolítico y cultural que hacen a esta región tan única y bella. El tono del tour es como un paseo con amigos, relajado y tranquilo, con tiempos para contemplar el paisaje, tomar fotos de recuerdo y profundizar en la historia y las características de los lugares. Altamente recomendable!

Borja is a very friendly and sweet person who is very knowledgeable about the sites as well as the history and the culture of the area. He drove expertly and knows the area inside and out. It was very comfortable to sit in his clean air conditioned car and enjoy the tour. He took us to some of the best hidden local spots for great views and sights. He was very flexible so that we were able to customize the tour to our interests, which was fabulous. The tour showed us some memorable sights and gave us an opportunity to see beautiful vistas as well as learn about historical and cultural aspects of the area. Time very well spent! Highly recommend the tour! Not to be missed!
