Basque Country

“The Colourful”

With the deepest blue of the ocean contrasting with the soaring peaks of the Pyrenees, the deep-rooted traditions of Basque country represent the northern soul of Spain and the pride of the Basque people. From breathtaking coastal walks to discovering its celebrated and eclectic cuisine, there’s plenty to celebrate in the land of pintxos and txakoli. Topa!

HOTEL TYPE

Signature

We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.

Bistro

These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.

Christine Tucker

Trip Designer

There was Christine Tucker on a beach in Costa Rica. Surfing. Chilling. Minding her own business, really. When she got to chatting with a B&R guide, she thought, “That sounds like a good gig.” After 10 years spent guiding more than 40 B&R trips across the globe, it's turned out to be a little more than that. As one of our Trip Designers, Christine now combines her decade of experience with the same adventurous spirit that brought her to that fateful beach in the first place.

See For YourselfBasque Country Walking

There were so many incredible events on this trip. I loved going to the farm and making cheese, the wine cellar in the Michelin-starred restaurant in San Sebastian, the evening of eating tapas, and the Eating Society lunch—all were so memorable and fantastic. And we had a tremendous guide—enthusiastic, knowledgeable, totally attentive to details, and such a delightful person.
