Tour description

Do you prefer surprising natural places and welcoming small historic villages rather than the chaos of big cities? Do you want to reach those places that only some locals know about? Climb aboard our car and discover the wonderful coast of Biscay!

There is much more than the 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 hill lines end right before the sea, which creates incredible landscapes with incredible cliffs, exciting beaches, wonderful villages and fascinating places. All those places are out there waiting for someone like you to visit them.

The best part? Not even locals usually visit them. Many of them don't even know that some of these places exist, so they are usually quiet, relaxing and lonely places. You will probably be the only tourist on them. Trust us, if you like 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 Gorliz Lighthouse along with its fantastic landscape.
  • An amazing view of San Juan de Gaztelugatxe.
  • The historic seaside village of Bermeo.
  • The historical village and ancient institutions of Gernika .

**Also, while traveling from one place to another you will have the chance to see the incredible views of the Cantabrian Sea and the Urdaibai Bay Biosphere Reserve. There are some scenic spots along the way where we can stop, enjoy the scenery and take beautiful memorable photos.

The tour will last approximately the whole morning, 5 hours. It might seem like a lot of time at first, but I can guarantee you won't regret it.

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

Come and enjoy the fascinating coast of Biscay!

Note that:
- The tour is available with my car at no additional cost.
- If you prefer, you can take the tour in your own vehicle.

Después de estar esperando una media hora, los guías no aparecieron por el lugar en el que habíamos quedado. Al menos, podrían haber avisado, ya que perdí mi tiempo en llegar hasta allí. Muy decepcionante.

Una vergüenza. Primera vez que me pasa que no acuda el guía y encima al ser a mitad de mañana nos ha partido todo el día. Le envié mensajes durante la semana y no contestaba y ya me escamaba, pero lo de hoy ha sido de remate. Una pena.
