AIZKORRI TREKKING - Private Outdoor Adventure
We head to the roof of Gipuzkoa to find a building covered in ‘thorns’, a walk more than 1,000 meters high among meadows and forests, and a breed of Rastafarian sheep from whose milk the most famous cheese in the region is made.Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this productPass By:
Oñati, Gipuzkoa, Spain
We will pick you up in the morning and take you on this rich with culture and history hiking through Basque Highlands. On the way to the starting point, your guide will give you an introduction on the history of the area, and what to expect throughout the day. Stop At:
Santuario de Aranzazu, Barrio de Arantzazu, 8, 20569 Onati Spain
Next, we will stop at the 1950’ Sanctuary of Arantzazu - a majestic monument rising above craggy rocks that is considered one of the most avant-garde religious structures in the world! Leading Basque artists like Néstor Basterretxea, Eduardo Chillida and Jorge Oteiza contributed to this incredible project. Surroundings of the Sanctuary are breathtaking!
Duration: 10 minutesStop At:
Aizkorri-Aratz Natural Park, Onati Spain
With the spiritual energy of basilica we will start the ascent of Mount Aizkorri. Without a doubt, these rocky peaks are not only the highest but also the most scenic formations of sharp limestone massif in the Basque Country.
The path will take us first through a treeless but green landscape filled with ‘latxa’ sheep and local legends. With time, grazing pastures will turn into rugged rocks and above the mountains will appear gliding birds of prey: peregrine falcon, griffon vulture, booted eagle…
At the top of the mountain we will enjoy panoramic views and a well-deserved rest! It’s a perfect moment to eat delicious lunch made of highest quality local specialities like Idiazabal cheese, cured sausages, ham and tuna fish from a nearby port.
Duration: 4 hoursStop At:
San Adrian ermita, 20215, Gipuzkoa, Spain
Time to make a decision! You can choose between going down on your own through the San Adrian tunel or descend the same way we climbed up, accompanied by the guide. We recommend the first option that will allow you to enjoy both sides of this impressive peak and experience a historically important natural cave known by the ancients as the ‘hole to hell’. The guide will give you all the necessary information and a Walkie Talkie to safely finish the hike!
Duration: 10 minutesStop At:
Parking Tunel San Adrián, Unnamed Road,, 20215 Zegama, Gipuzkoa, Spain
Well done! After a 17 km hike you will come back to the car where your guide will reward you with a glass of a local wine before departing for San Sebastian.
