Why take this tour?
Your tour in the Basque Country
This morning depart for the authentic French Basque region located south of Bordeaux. Reach the classy resort of Biarritz. After and a stroll through the town, enjoy some free time for personal discovery and lunch. You might want to eat in one of the traditional restaurants that is tucked away in a corner of the small fishing port. In the afternoon, your guide will suggest different options such as a visit to Saint Jean de Luz town, a drive along the coastal road with its fascinating landscapes and during which you could experience a unique wine tasting session of wines that are aged in the Ocean.
Another option is to head inland to visit some of the most traditional Basque villages that have kept their authenticity through times. Villages such as Ainhoa, Sare or Espelette are a real treat for those discovering the French Basque region for the first time. Finally, you could also reach Bayonne, the local Capital, and meander through its narrow streets that will immerse you in the Basque Culture. Good to know: you can experience a great Hot Chocolate tasting here as the town is famous for being the first French city where Chocolate arrived perpetuating the tradition ever since!
