Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Phare de Biarritz, Espl. Elisabeth II Pointe St-Martin, 64200 Biarritz France

Biarritz is many things: Europe’s gateway to surfing in the mid-50s, a pioneer of beach tourism (they started promoting it 200 years ago!), and one of the most coveted places to see and be seen. We’ll walk along its promenade admiring the sea and its sumptuous hotels until we reach its 44-meter-high lighthouse.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Mercado Les Halles, Rue Les halles, Biarritz France

We’ll visit the colorful market Les Halles to take the pulse of daily life and get in touch with the greatest that France has to offer: its cheeses, its charcuterie and its bakeries / patisseries. Bon Apetit!

Duration: 1 hour

Pass By: Guethary, Guethary, Basque Country, Pyrenees-Atlantiques, Nouvelle-Aquitaine

An anecdote: the legendary pop star Madonna once spent a vacation in Guethary and was so captivated by what she experienced that, on her next tour, she took a txalaparta group (a typically Basque percussion instrument) as har opening act, and even sang in Basque. How did Guethary seduce the Queen of Pop- Very simply: white houses, red shutters, trees and meadows that reach down to the sea, rocky cliffs, hidden beaches and a surfy atmosphere.

Stop At: Saint-Jean-de-Luz, Saint-Jean-de-Luz, Basque Country, Pyrenees-Atlantiques, Nouvelle-Aquitaine

Protected by a bay, Saint Jean de Luz is a peaceful summer fishing village where we we’ll visit the Maison Adam patisserie where, in 1660 (!) they created the famous ‘macaron’. At that same time, a certain Johannès de Suhigaraychipi, a French corsair who captured more than 100 British, Dutch and Spanish ships, was sailing through the area.

Duration: 1 hour

Pass By: Corniche Basque, Domaine d'Abbadia, 64700 Hendaye France

They call it ‘La route de la Corniche’ and it is one (yet another!) of the most beautiful roads in the Basque Country. The section between Ciboure and Hendaye is only 8 kilometers long, but you’ll never want it to end. Well, actually, you will, because when it's over, it will mean that you've reached...

Stop At: Hondarribia, Hondarribia, Province of Guipuzcoa, Basque Country

The last (or first, depending on how you look at it) city on the Spanish coast is a privileged place with sea, river, bay, mountains, a fishing district at the forefront of world cuisine (says the New York Times!), and a walled medieval neighborhood (with streets not suitable for heels) at the top.

Duration: 1 hour

Pass By: Jaizkibel, Hondarribia Spain

There is no better way to get to San Sebastián than through the road that runs along the crest of Mount Jaizkibel, and from which you can see the Basque coast to Bizkaia.
