This is the first guide to bring together walks and drives in the Basque Country, which runs east from Bilbão in Spain to Biarritz in France. The book explores the coast and inland - throughout the seven provinces making up the area, including the lush green flanks of the Pyrenees with their picture-postcard villages and famous places like Pamplona and the Pilgrims' Route to Santiago de Compostela.
The entire Basque coast is mostly very rugged, with many thriving fishing towns and villages, plus the added attraction of splendid beaches. Inland the countryside is more mountainous, with lush green countryside. Don't miss the award-winning Guggenheim Museum in Bilbão, the Pilgrims' Route to Santiago, the San Fermines fiestas at Iruña-Pamplona, or stunning coastal resorts like Donostia-San Sebastián and Biarritz. But most of all, explore the remote picture-postcard villages and lush mountainous countryside straddling both sides of the Pyrenees - preferably on foot.The guide includes a fold-out touring map and large-scale (1:50,000) topographical walking maps as well as local transport timetables.
8 car tours, 32 main walks, 19 shorter walks for motorists. Free online update service with specific route change information on Sunflower Books' website, maintained daily.
