The Best of Basque

Half-Day Hiking of Urkiola Natural Park from Bilbao

Tour Description

If you enjoy a nice hike and love the outdoors this is the private tour for you! This experience offers stunning vistas of the picturesque Basque countryside and mountains in the famed Urkiola Natural Park about 30 minutes outside of Bilbao. The Urkiola Natural Park covers the highest part of the Basque mountain range, forming a massive limestone barrier between the two cities of Arratia and Durango and the Aramaio valley in Alava. These mountains also separate the Cantabrian Atlantic basin from the Mediterranean basin. If you like rugged landscapes, this is the place for you.


Urkiola Natural Park

The park is mountainous, with limestone precipices, ravines and deep valleys. This park is a favorite for the local climbers and hikers. We will go for 1.5 hour to 2 hour intermediate hike that affords breathtaking views of the entire valley. Please wear comfortable shoes and loose/athletic clothing.


Anboto, the highest mountain in the range, is very popular with the Basques, as is Mari’s cave. Mari is a well-known character in Basque mythology. The hiking is always at your pace, and we can take a rest whenever you feel is necessary.
