Travel program. It’s a unique, exclusive, relaxing and carefree experience in the Basque Country, based around an “off-the-beaten-path” philosophy but also focusing on the “must-see” spots that you’ll love to talk about when return home. The travel program may have some variations due to scheduling changes at monuments, climatological issues, unexpected events, improvements to travel program according to the host-guide’s criteria or the group’s condition. Very important: the trekking activities will depend on the mountain and climatological conditions, in the case that the weather is not suitable to do the activity , an alternative experience will be scheduled.
Remember that this is not a tourist package, but an experience-based trip to enjoy the nature, the gastronomy and the culture in The land of the Basques.
