The northern coastline of Spain’s Basque Country and the countryside of the Kingdom of Navarra offer a quite unique flavour to this otherwise familiar country. Dramatic cliffs, rocky coves and rias, lush green valleys, striking architecture, fascinating culture and traditions and celebrated cuisine & wines are just the start of what this region has to offer.

Pilgrimage paths that lead to Santiago de Compostela criss-cross the region. The green Pyrenean foothills of Navarra and the wide bays and sandy beaches of the Atlantic Coast come together to create a simply wonderful, diverse holiday. This heartland, with its language, cuisine, fiestas and scenery are the epitome of a more ‘hidden’ Spain.

Select Departure :

Day 1 We fly into Bilbao and transfer by coach to San Sebastian, surrounded by green hills and fronted by a sweeping promenade and a wide sandy beach. Enjoy a guided orientation walk before dinner.
Day 2 We’ll walk part of the ‘Camino Norte’ pilgrimage route today with dramatic coastal views.
Day 3 We nip over the border into French Basque country to visit Biarritz, once the favoured resort of Napoleon III, with its art deco and Belle Epoque buildings, and beautiful promenade.
Day 4 A breathtaking coastal walk takes us from the cobbled streets of Orio to Zarautz, with its sweeping bay and where we enjoy a traditional Basque seafood lunch paired with Txakoli, the local wine.
Day 5 We travel inland to the ancient Roman city of Pamplona, in Navarra. Dominated by the Cathedral of Santa Maria, the winding streets and old city walls, much loved by Hemmingway, are best explored on foot.
Day 6 From the town of Olite in Navarra’s wine region and once a royal residence of the Kings of Navarra, we’ll enjoy a countryside stroll and a visit to the Royal Palace with magnificent views over the town and countryside. We will include lunch today with traditional wines.
Day 7 After a visit to the tiny Romanesque Ermita of Santa Maria de Eunate, we’ll walk part of the ‘Camino de Santiago’ with our local guide which takes us to the pilgrimage town of Puente La Reina with time to visit the town and the famous bridge. There will be time to further explore Pamplona before dinner.
Day 8 We transfer to Bilbao with a guided visit of the Guggenheim Museum, before our flight to London.
