I must say that the excursion has been excellent in every way, we have traveled without problem by car, the places visited have seemed incredible, and above all because of the guide Estefan, who has explained many things to us and has made me very enjoyable, Kindness and closeness. Very attentive that we all had no doubts since the tour has been in two languages and willing to solve them if we had them. On the way he explained many things to us and in the free time we have had he has recommended us.

Discover the island San Juan de Gaztelugatxe, one of the most charming attractions of the Basque Country. Delve into the history of the hermitage and enjoy the spectacular views.

San Juan de Gaztelugatxe Trip

After picking you up from your hotel in Bilbao, we will travel by bus to the viewpoint from where you can see the zigzagging bridge that will take us to the island. Once there, we will have two hours free for the tour of the stone walkway of 241 steps which leads from the mainland to the summit of the island.

We will gradually ascend up to the beautiful hermitage, which you may recognize from the hit series, Game of Thrones. Once we reach the top of the island, we will admire the incredible views that surround it.

We will enter the chapel dedicated to John the Baptist to try the ancient local tradition of ringing the bell and making a wish.

After, we will drive to the picturesque coastal town of Bermeo. There, we will stroll through the old, narrow streets and hear all about its deep-rooted seafaring tradition.

Before finishing our trip, we will stop in Guernica, a Basque town made famous by the painting by Pablo Picasso. We will hear all about the events that took place here during the Civil War, as we explore the Casa de Juntas, one of the few buildings that survived.

The tour ends back at the hotel in Bilbao.
