French Basque Countryside tour

TOUR DESCRIPTION

Escape the busy city bustle of San Sebastian for a quiet and scenic full-day tour through the rural landscapes of the French Basque Country. Conveniently tucked in between ever green valleys and imposing mountains, the nostalgically attractive French Basque Countryside is a pristine area that will take you back in time and let you imagine what the Basque Country must have looked like many years ago.

We will take the quiet countryside road to cross the border into France through a mountain pass to arrive into the French Basque area. Here, you will get to delight yourself in the typical Pyrenean landscape while exploring the bucolic and picturesque villages of St. Étienne de Baïgorry, St. Jean Pied de Port, and Espelette, each packed with its own essence and peculiarities.

You will get some free time to enjoy lunch in St. Jean Pied de Port, renown for being the most popular starting point of the pilgrimage of The Camino to Santiago de Compostela.
