Oh la la La France!

The Basque-French Country is 20 minutes from San Sebastian by car. Only by crossing the Txingudi bay you can already feel the difference between the French and Spanish shores. In some of our programs we include special places in this area. Stéphanie, host of the go Basquing team, was born in Bordeaux (France). She has lived in Bilbao for more than 25 years. From a family of wine-makers, she enjoys introducing our ...

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 ...

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 ...

Say it to me singing

In the Basque Country music is rooted in culture. This characteristic allows us to offer interesting and very different alternatives to the groups we welcome as boutique DMC. When the Basques come together in cider houses and gastronomic societies, the lyric comes with the food. Songs of our ancestors, many of them linked to the sea and fishing, which have reached our times thanks to the oral tradition. In Basque folklore ...

Eguzkilore or sunflower

I have to confess that as a child I was scared of the dark. The lack of light made me uneasy. One night my father came home with a dry, straw-colored flower; he told me that its name was Eguzkilore and that it was magical. A flower full of spikes and hair that according to him, slowed down evil spirits. He placed it on my room’s door. That flower did for ...

Txapeldun

We like to play here. Play to win. In Basque "Txapeldun" means winner. It comes from the word "txapela" (beret), which is the trophy that is assigned to the winners.  When our guests win a game of jai-alai, a regatta, team building sports events based on our traditional Basque sports ... even the scavenger hunt that we organize using iPads, we always give txapelas to recognize those who deserve it.  The Encartada reflects the Basque tradition of ...

At one of our ...

It was such a pleasure meeting them! They came from the United States to visit the north of Spain. A few ...
