What you'll do

Hike to the sheperd´s paradise and taste best mountain food & drinks in to the wild :
As we approach driving (1 hour), we will stop for breakfast. And then, starting at 700 meters from the sea level and using an easy trail, we will arrive to a beautiful valley full of pastures located 950 meters high. There, we will enjoy a good mountain snack with cider in an authentic shepherd’s edge. From the edge, you will have the option to up to one of the highest peaks of the Basque Country, 1528 meters high, or relax enjoying the valley. Before completing a circular route through an area with spectacular beauty, finishing with a mini-yoga session to stretch our muscles. We will finish the day, having a drink in a 500 years old farmhouse. And if you want, on the way back we can make a stop to take a nice bath in the mountain waters.

I am a Basque native, in love with our country, culture and gastronomy. After be working with travelers 7 years, in 2015 I started offering artisan, unique and authentic experiences in my own. And when I travel, I love to get into places where tourists do not arrive, to feel the true essence of the place where I am. Is why I have decided to offer this experience, where I give you the chance to get deep in the Basque countryside to enjoy with a beatiful hike, tasting mountain food in the paradise.

I had a great hiking experience in the Basque mountains together with Julen and the rest of our group. Beautiful scenery and a hike adapted to the group. A good mix between hiking, stories and good food.
