Reviews for Basque country self guided walking holiday


review 25 Aug 2021

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

This was our first trip since the pandemic began. We were looking for something outdoors and not touristy. What we encountered was beyond our greatest expectations. On its surface there were breathtaking views, great hikes, and authentic food. But what really made this trip special were the people we met, including Georgina the host and the handful of other guests. Also unique and different than any previous trip we had to Spain, was the unforgettable introduction to the local Basque community. Georgina's knowledge and enthusiasm about the Basque culture in which she is immersed is outstanding. She will ensure that your trip is one to remember. Special shoutout to Carol not only for a great culinary experience but also her upbeat camaraderie and regional knowledge. Everyone was COVID vaccinated and we felt comfortably safe.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Good hiking shoes, a sense of adventure, and be open to flexible daily agenda that will not disappoint!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Without a doubt. All expenditures stayed within the community. Attention to reduced waste. No single use plastics.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Exceptional, not to be missed
