rekkers and mountain enthusiasts have a perfect opportunity to enjoy walking in the Basque Country. Seeing the Cultural Landscape Legacy of the Basque Country allows you, in a route of just 40 kilometres, to experience a wide variety of different landscapes from ordered vineyards to unspoiled mountains, from the coast to the inland plains.

Love of cycling has led to the creation of four BTT centres (mountain bike centres) in Basque territory. Busturialdea-Urdaibai in Bizkaia; Izki-Montaña Alavesa and Valderejo-Añana in Araba/Álava and Debabarrena and Tolosaldea in Gipuzkoa. There is a wide choice of activities wherever you happen to be. Just get on your bike and explore the natural beauty you will encounter along the way.
