One of the things our visitors love most about their personalised tours is visiting some of the small villages on the Basque coast and the most distinctive places in them.
First off is Elantxobe, which is similar to a Roman amphitheatre and has charming streets and narrow houses with views of the sea.
Secondly, Bermeo, which was once the capital of Biscay, houses the fisherman’s museum inside the majestic 15th century Ercilla tower.
San Juan de Gaztelugatxe is a unique place located on a small island where you go up 241 stairs counting to reach the striking chapel and ring the bell.
You can also visit Lekeitio, which is an attractive stop along the coast. And the village of Ea, which is divided in two by a river that forms a canal. If you want to explore the estuary of Urdaibai you’ll find more than 220 km2 of land with extraordinary ecological value that was declared a Biosphere reserve by UNESCO in 1984.
After that beautiful natural space, another option is to visit the surfer’s paradise of Mundaka that’s famous for having the tallest left wave in Europe.
