Take a stroll around San Sebastiรกn whilst waiting for the best wave. Enjoy a coastal trail, on foot or by mountain bike, and visit a txakoli winery.

THE BASQUE COAST | ACTIVE TOURISM | ACTIVITIES IN THE SEA

Activities in the

4

A wild but not at all treacherous sea, a wide variety of sea beds, incredibly charming ports and a quite astounding gastronomic offering. In addition to this, spectacular bays and rivers, many of them protected due to their environmental and scenic value, and a great variety of surfable waves.


THE BASQUE COAST | ACTIVE TOURISM | ACTIVITIES IN THE SEA

Holidays at sea To enjoy a different kind of holiday, you can rent a sailing boat or a motor boat, like a yacht. There are two types: ones without a skipper, if you have the necessary qualification, and ones that come with a skipper should you not have any training, or you simply wish to leave the day’s sailing in the hands of somebody who knows the coast, the hidden coves and the ports with the most attractions.

Boat trips and specialised excursions

If you want to experience sailing, take an unforgettable swim or witness the sunset from the sea, many companies offer excursions which last for several hours or a whole day. And for whale lovers, fishing enthusiasts or surfers looking for the perfect wave, specific excursions to the best areas.

Excursions on tour boats

In boats and catamarans of 12, 40 and up to 120 passengers, a dozen companies offer guided tours through the Basque Coast’s most beautiful scenery: the Bilbao Estuary, San Juan de Gaztelugatxe, Urdaibai, the Basque Coast Geopark, San Sebastián, Txingudi Bay… Even wine tasting in an underwater winery in Plentzia. They often have a fixed schedule for trips but they also adjust to the requirements and availabilities of groups.

Regular transport lines by sea

Taking advantage of the frequent sea transport services through estuaries and bays is an easy and fun option, ideal for families, in order to access towns and beaches and see the surroundings in a different way. You will also avoid large detours during trekking routes, including the Saint James Way along the coast, or by bicycle. In the bays of San Sebastián, Pasaia and Txingudi and in the estuaries of Bilbao, Mundaka and Zumaia. 5


Between the Guggenheim and the Biscay Bridge Boat trips to view the museum from an unique perspective, see the urban transformation which has warranted worldwide recognition and walk under a “hanging bridge” which has been declared a World Heritage Site. Prices: Between Bilbao, Portugalete, Getxo and Santurtzi, boat trips along the estuary from €8 and the rental of small vessels which do not require any qualification, from €35/1 hour.

Getxo, at full sail Getxo, located 10 minutes from Bilbao, is the place with the most to offer in terms of water activities in the Basque Country. With two marinas and a good number of nautical tourism companies, the range of courses and activities for making the most of the sea caters for all types of visitors and interests. In the summer season regular sailing trips are offered, without needing to hire the vessel. Prices: guaranteed outings from €35 per person for short trips or to see the sunset. For more information call 94 491 08 00 or visit www.getxo.eus/turismo

Gaztelugatxe and Urdaibai from the water Boat trips to San Juan de Gaztelugatxe - one of the Basque Coast’s iconic spots which has provided scenery for the series Game of Thrones - and along the Urdaibai Estuary, a unique setting which, due to its varied landscape and ecology along with its historical legacy, was declared a Biosphere Reserve in 1984. From Bermeo, programmed trips to San Juan and Elantxobe, and also custom trips with the charter companies. From Mundaka, guided excursions along the estuary with refreshments and live music! Also short trips from Sukarrieta. Prices: €12 (€30 with refreshments). Consult with charter.

Through the Basque Coast Geopark

Sailing along the coast from Zumaia to Mutriku, passing through Deba, in order to get to know, with guides, the secrets of the spectacular flysch cliffs, which have a history of over 60 million years. There is an excursion schedule (www.geoparkea.eus) but a custom service can also be contracted in Zumaia or Getaria. Prices: Short excursions (45’ or 1 hr.) from €13 and long excursions (3 hr.), €25, from Zumaia, Deba and Mutriku. 6


THE BASQUE COAST | ACTIVE TOURISM | BY BOAT

Getaria, the birthplace of Elkano and Balenciaga The hometown of Elkano, the first sailor to sail around the world, is the ideal port to arrive into on your own boat or to take an excursion from in a charter yacht: a picturesque town, the museum dedicated to the designer Balenciaga, fishing boats, high-quality leisure port and the best grilled fish in the Basque Country, accompanied, of course, by txakoli. And Zarautz and Orio - which also have leisure ports - only a few kilometres away. Prices: Consult with charter.

Through the most beautiful bay in the world San Sebastián deserves to be seen from all angles. The sea transport companies located in the port offer trips of different durations allowing you to sail along La Concha Bay, leaving the Santa Clara Island behind, and observe the city from the sea. In the port, you can rent sailing boats, motor boats and even traditional fishing boats. And fishing excursions. Prices: excursion within the bay, €6.5; the three beaches, €10. Transport to the Island (return), €4. Consult with charter.

Unique boats in Pasaia In a bay straight out of a postcard, excursions in vessels which are unique to the Basque Country: the tuna fishing boat-museum MATER and the historical vessels from the visitable sea factory, Albaola. Don’t miss the construction of the replica of San Juan, a ship which dates from the 16th century. An opportunity to get to know fishing villages and their traditional activities: artisan fishing, coastal carpentry, sailing… Prices: consult the wide range of services (short trips, accommodation…) and rates.

Hondarribia and Txingudi Bay At the mouth of the bordering River Bidasoa, Txingudi Bay is an ideal setting for nautical activities thanks to its port infrastructures and the wide offering of water activities that it harbours: light sailing courses, yacht rental, excursions by catamaran and even a return service to the village of Hendaya. And back on the land again, a stroll around the walled city of Hondarribia, its marine… and its restaurants. Prices: excursions from €9; Hondarribia-Hendaya trip, €1.90. 7

Trekking All along the coastline there are watchtowers and lookouts which are easily accessed on foot and local trails of low difficulty which are suitable for all kinds of visitors who want to enjoy coastal panoramic views and do a little physical activity during the holidays. But if you want to explore the coast in several stages (GR footpaths, the Saint James Way, themed and customised routes, etc.) whilst finding out about the natural and historical values of the surroundings, or discover the secrets of the nature reserves and the areas of geological interest - and indisputable beauty - there’s nothing better than placing yourself in the hands of companies and expert guides. A few hours, a day or several days, with no nasty shocks and with full guarantees. They take care of adjusting the route to the level of the participants, preparing the breaks for recharging batteries, organising extra activities or looking for accommodation. Prices: one day guided tour between €40 and €100 per person depending on the number of participants. For tours over several days, please inquire. · Northern Saint James Way Setting off from Hondarribia, the first three stages of the Saint James Way along the coast, or the Northern Way, run alongside the Cantabrian Sea. It then enters the lands of Biscay only to, once again, join the coast at Muskiz having passed through Bilbao. With good signage and a growing number of types of accommodation and establishments with menus for pilgrims, it’s a great option in order to discover the Basque Coast step by step. Prices: guide for 5 stages, between €200 and €400 depending on the number of participants. Inquire about rates according to requirements, duration of the experience, etc.
