Things to do in Biarritz, Nouvelle-Aquitaine: The Best Day Trips from

March 7, 2022 Tambra Mccollister

A stylish beach town on France’s southwestern coast, Biarritz was once the vacation spot for nobility and is now Europe’s surfing capital. It’s experienced a tourist renaissance—summers are busy. Biarritz lacks the Riviera’s glitz, but you’ll see affluent vacationers in designer gear and surfers in flip-flops, and hear French, Spanish and Basque. The Grande Plage is the center of the action. Behind it, visit the restored, Art Deco casino and wander the streets down to the old port to the west.

Iker gave a virtual presentation via Internet of his Bilbao and Guggenheim Museum Private tour. It was very interesting to get to know this amazing city and Iker showed a lot of impressing photos so that everybody could perfectly imagine the tour. At the same time, he answered a lot of individual questions, showing a very good knowledge of art, the city's history, food etc. All in all, we got a vivid image of Bilbao and will book him as soon as we will be able to visit this city for real.

Can, getting to know the city, its architecture, history and traditions, be interesting and not boring at all? Well, difficult, specially if we talk about San Sebastian (Basque Country, Spain) so beautiful city, that just see it leaves breathless. When I came to live to San Sebastian in 2006 I was totally impressed by the beauty of this town, however I did not discovered the soul of the city until I experienced the unrivalled city tour with Ikusnahi this summer. We have been walking around the city with Ania, who explained everything in such amazing and interesting way, natural and very funny at the same time! She left space for open discussion for you to begin to discover for yourself, in an imperceptible way, that you know the city more deeply, understanding the local culture and people much better.

This day tour allowed us to see the most of San Sebastian and Basque Coast in one day. There were a lot of incredible sights. We had only one day to visit the Basque Country and we were really satisfied with this tour. Our tour guide Josu really helped us make the most of it. The food was really good with lot of pintxos options to choose and different wines to pair with the food. I would highly recommend txakoli local wine. It was greatt day with a great guide.

The explanations provided during all the tour were accurate and very extensive but at the same time funny. The tour guide was fantastic. He was a local young guy full of energy and good vibes. I would definitely recommend this tour if you are visiting San Sebastian.

Although it's an up and down route, the walking surface is very good. The difficulty is the relatively steep assent and desent. Remember to pace yourself, don't get out of breath. The views are surpurb, take time to take photos. Enjoy the walk knowing you are strengthening your muscles, becoming fitter, and, may be improving your weight.

We really enjoyed this day. We visited a charming winery and were driven by Alex to several spots in the countryside which were fantastic, specially a little romanic church in the middle of nowhere. We also had the chance of visiting a few medieval towns full of history. Really worthy.
