What to Do from Lekeitio to Zarautz

Peaks and valleys. Maritime buzz and secluded country homes. The whale hunters of yesteryear and a mouse in Getaria. The creativity of Balenciaga competing with the capricious forms of the Basque Coast Geopark. The sea and mountains. Lighthouses and basilicas. Nature and culture. Green and blue.

Follow a route of contrasts that will lead you through a land both singular and multifaceted.

It is a land of universal figures like Juan Sebastián Elcano and St. Ignatius of Loyola. A land of Deba’s prehistoric caves and fishing villages. A land of landscapes sculpted by the winds of 60 million years. A land of days lunching on beans cooked over a slow fire and dining on fresh fish that needs nothing more than the kiss of a grill.

You’ll see how you can have a full palette of colours, stories, sounds, and flavours in a single day.
