THE FLYSCH OF ZUMAIA & THE COAST OF GIPUZKOA TOUR
On this full-day tour of the Coast of Gipuzkoa, we will visit some of the most enchanting coastal villages on the Basque Coast: Hondarribia (Fuenterrabia), Getaria, and Zumaia.
In the beautiful border town of Hondarribia (Fuenterrabia), between Spain and France, we will take a short stroll through its picturesque fishermen’s quarter, the District of La Marina, and head towards the town’s ancient old quarter, the only one in all of Gipuzkoa sheltered between medieval walls.
Continuing our trip, we will bump into extensive green fields packed with Txakoli vineyards overlooking the sea and catch a glimpse of our next destination: the beautiful coastal town of Getaria, known for being one of the most important fishing sea ports of the Basque Country, home to the museum of famous fashion designer Cristobal Balenciaga, and the birthplace of Juan Sebastián Elcano, the first man to circumnavigate the earth. Here we will take a short break to enjoy a bit of Getaria’s famous cuisine.
After a light lunch, we will head towards the small town of Zumaia (a one-of-a-kind coastal site used in the filming of “Game of Thrones Season 7”). We will take a short stroll along the Flysch Route and contemplate its jagged cliffs and surf scene, without a doubt one of the most breathtaking sceneries in the entire Basque Coast.
