walking in the basque-pyranees- such a joy!

on foot holidays provided an itinerary that met all our needs- we felt very supported though the booking process, and especially in country with a local contact that gave us all the reassurance we needed that this was going to be fabulous. The routes chosen were excellent, with a great variety of terrain from mountain to sea, but with so much more, the accommodation was varied -full of local charm, history and we were made so welcome everywhere...

Highlights included, wildlife, spectacular trails, food, vistas, and friendliness of all we met.

On Foot Holidays provided an easy to navigate web site with wide range of self guided walking holidays, they supported us through-out or holiday- indeed prior to its start, in helping us with choosing range of routs/ accommodation, transfer advice, and information that only added to our enjoyment of the whole region.

Fantastic walking holiday in the Basque Pyrenees

We enjoyed 7 days of glorious walking, starting off in picturesque hillside villages, navigating stunning mountain ridges with panoramic views, before finishing by the sea at San Sebastian. The routes were really well designed and we enjoyed the variety of very comfortable accommodation en route, as well as the food, wine and Basque hospitality.

This was our 4th successive year with On Foot Holidays - we can completely rely on them to provide great walking routes, clear navigation instructions and fully vetted, comfortable accommodation. In addition, a local contact is available to provide any guidance if necessary.

Possibly the best walking holiday we have ever had

This was a 7 night medium/hard self guided walking holiday in the Basque Pyrenees. We were a party of 6 and walked every day with our luggage being carried forward to each new accommodation. We walked through oak and chestnut forests, did some long, steep and difficult ascents and descents, passing through wonderful scenery and with incredible views. All the lovely places to stay were organised by On Foot Holidays. We ate well and slept well.

This is the second time we have walked with On Foot Holidays and the walks get better each time. They organise everything so well. They have a local Spanish expert who devised many of their Spanish walks and who keeps in close touch with us each evening, telling us about the weather ahead and giving us advice on the next stage of the walk. This is an invaluable service.

Basque Pyrenees

A challenging hiking holiday through the Basque country of Spain onto the Atlantic Coast. Great villages, people, views AND wine!

Basque Pyrenees, 4 days, 5 nights, 6th and 7th night in San See

We had a wonderful time. On Foot did a great job, both from headquarters and locally. The route was spectacular and varied, the accommodations and food superb. We thoroughly enjoyed it and STRONGLY RECOMMEND this trip to others.

Basking in the Basque Pyrenees

The Basque Pyrenees Walk encompasses culture, history, a unique language, stunning countryside, friendly locals, regional food and wine, an interesting variety of accommodation, abundant wildlife, accurate route notes and importantly the most amazing local contact in Aznar who could not have been more helpful. We loved this walk from the peace and tranquillity of Ziga on Day 1 to the hype of San Sebastian at the end.

Faultless from the start. Great comms via email throughout process, local contact Aznar was exemplary - supportive and very helpful especially on the 2 days we could not walk due to rain, the route notes easy to read and possibly the most accurate we have experienced over 10 walks with 5 different walking companies. Background information was comprehensive, travel tips were also comprehensive and relevant. Could not fault the service received from On Foot at all.

My friend and I had an outstanding adventure in the Basque Pyrenees. On Foot Holidays provided the framework for us to simply enjoy walking through the beautiful countryside without worries. Our accommodations were interesting and comfortable, meals delicious after a long day of walking, and support staff available at any time for questions/weather reports/check-ins. We had never done a walking tour before and found the self-guided navigation challenging and fun. GPS was essential to ensure we kept on track, but the written instructions were very good and literally our moment to moment guide on the route. The scenery was memorable, even on our one rainy day, and the peaceful serenity was rejuvenating.

Rating for tour operator:

On Foot Holiday staff was very responsive to every question we had and provided materials for us as soon as possible before our trip. Though we did not meet our contact person, Aznar, he was always available to us and we still keep in touch about different aspects of our adventure. Everything went completely smoothly from taxi pickups to luggage transfers to accommodations and meals.
