Travel to the heart of Euskadi - Basque Country

What if we could stand still and stop time without rushing to go anywhere at all?

What if we could be like the sandstone rock from which the medieval town of Laguardia is built?

What if we could be like the wines of Rioja Alavesa, patiently waiting to come of age?

What if we could be like the salt of Añana, slowly watching the water evaporate away?

What if we could be like the Nervión waterfall, suspending in air the river that will wind through Bizkaia on its march towards the sea?

This stage of the Basque Country Grand Tour invites you to breathe deep and stop to admire every detail. Gaze out from the Rioja Balcony and contemplate the beauty of the surrounding vineyards and mountains. Dig into the subsoils of Laguardia, that not only served as a refuge for its wines, but also those plotting their plans for war at key moments in history.

There is no greater luxury than time So, take off your watch, breathe in deep, and enjoy.
