At parties and official events, the Consulate welcomed senior officials and influential personalities of the time, in a spectacular Felucca boat to navigate the estuary. Nowadays, go Basquing  also welcomes business groups ...

Mix and Match

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 ...

The Northern Albacore fishing takes place during the summer months in the waters of the Bay of Biscay using traditional selective and ...

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.
