On Foot - Basque Pyrenees

On Foot - Basque Pyrenees Overview

This is the true centre of Basque culture - the well-kept villages of the western Pyrenees, a border zone with strong French influences too. Be prepared for a unique and somewhat incomprehensible language, and an outgoing friendliness resulting from the pride of being born Basque.

You will experience some extraordinary village architecture, unspoilt farming country and wild ridges, great views into both France and Spain, and the satisfaction of arriving at the sea, and taking a small boat across the water to Hondarribia, a town with an incomparable old walled centre. Then, for the hardy, a triumphant long ridge walk to San Sebastian, a city you have to visit, and best approached from our cliff-top walk.

Seven, six and five night versions of this holiday are also available. See the On Foot Holidays website for details of prices and dates.
