Living local stories… with Fair Saturday!

On November 24, we have a new Fair Saturday edition here. A movement born in Bilbao that transforms the entire city into a theatre’s stage, dancing, opera, performance, singing, an audiovisual show .... A trend born to change the world through art and culture ... And it has been a success, sowing its seed in cities such as Edinburgh, Milan, Bristol or Malaga. This year our guests were part of it: ...

Mix and Match

We like to combine options. Mix and match; get the most out of any activity. Even when we talk about walking around the city. Bilbao or San Sebastián, for example, invite to walk around, with a medieval old town that every few meters offer stops in bars where you can taste some wonderful pintxos* while observing the bustle of the locals conversing around the bar with their glass of Rioja wine in ...

Basque tuna

Our gourmet guests know well the specific characteristics of our local white Northern Albacore compared to the common tuna. It represents the high range of tuna, differing fundamentally for its exquisite flavor, smooth texture, and white tone. Also for its size, around 10 kilograms, which provides fat and juiciness. The Northern Albacore fishing takes place during the summer months in the waters of the Bay of Biscay using traditional selective and ...

Rowing Passion

The company groups that look for a rural activity, with some action, love one of our star sports: a boat-racing tradition (rowing regatta) between two or more teams of their own company. This activity brings such a great emotion because, within the tailor-made program, we seek interaction with a local rowing team, so our guests participate in training and talk with the rowers about the demands of the sport and what ...

By sea, by road.

The Basque Country (Spain) looks completely different depending on whether you see it from land or from the sea. There are areas of the coast especially beautiful when you see them from a boat, for example, Pasajes, hidden along a fjord, as well as San Sebastián, with a shell-shaped bay and the Santa Clara island in the middle.  The distance between both locations is 5 nautical miles and it takes about one ...

go Basquing Selection

We have been building trips to suit our guests for years. We work together as a team with international agencies, blending cultures different from ours.

Today is the day when we are excited to go one step further and also ...

A piece of Civilization

One of the most representative salt flats in Europe is located in the Salt Valley of Añana (Alava- Spain), at 60 km from the sea. Difficult to believe that this unique and magnificent place was a sea 200 million years ago! Now it is a white lake of 120,000 square meters, divided into 5,000 wooden structures (eras) so that it does not affect the flavor. The production is done by hand ...

Gilda in San Sebastián

A few weeks ago one of our guests declared his love for our Gilda. Most people associate that name with the beautiful Rita Hayworth and her mythical 1946 film; however, for us, a “Gilda” is a delicious snack; one of the famous pintxos* that fill the counter space of all our bars around here. It is quickly recognized by its simplicity and its color: a green chili pepper, an olive, ...

Do you settle for just watching or do you like to participate?

Our guests like to be part of what they see. Feel the smell of the saltpeter on the cliffs; the taste of the tear pea; talk to the villagers in the market square; meet and greet some of the internationally recognized Basque dancers after their performance for more than 30,000 people ...  You will soon have the opportunity to live with us our local stories: closed programs for small groups, around ...
