Lake at Hotel Iturregi

Hiking in the Basque Country

On the western end of the Pyrenees, northern Spain’s Basque Country has sensational walking and hiking opportunities…

Whether you’re staying in Blbao or San Sebastian, or one of our country hideaways like Hotel Iturregi, there are almost endless options for great hiking and walking. One of the main routes of the Camino de Santiago trail passes near the hotel and we can gladly organise a professional guide to take you out exploring the spectacular countryside on foot. If you want a challenge or a gentle stroll – or something in between – the Basque Country can provide it.

If you’re preference is to stay in Bilbao, we would recommend Hotel Miro (just across the road from the Guggenheim Museum) or if you prefer the idea of San Sebastian, we would recommend Villa Soro.
