Travel program. It´s a different, exclusive, relaxing and carefree experience in the Basque Country, based on an off-the-beaten-path philosophy but also focused on the “can´t miss” places that you´ll love to talk about when returning home. The travel program may have some variations due to schedule changing in the monuments, climatological issues, unexpected events, improvements of the travel program always up to the host -guide criteria and the group condition. Very important: the trekking activity will depend on the mountain and climatological conditions, in case the weather is not suitable to do the activity , an alternative experience will be scheduled.
Remember that this is not a touristic package, but an experience based trip to enjoy the nature, the gastronomy and culture in The land of the Basques.

The restored antique furniture, the magnificent doors and the precious earthen pottery, which belonged to an ancient palace of the area, make Ulle Gorri a very special place to rest and enjoy.
