We will meet in San Sebastian to then travel by train to Zumaia, a little village west of San Sebastian, famous for appearing in some films and series and for having the most incredible cliffs of the Basque coast. Here, while we walk its streets and buildings, we will discover the history and geology of this unique place at the Basque Coast UNESCO Global Geopark, an area that holds a geological heritage of more than 60 million years! Some hidden fossils will be part of our way! After admiring the views we'll descent to Itzurun beach to walk along it and learn about the incredible geological heritage. We'll then visit the iconic "Ermita de San Telmo” where we'll do some more fossil spotting and sightseeing. Algorri rocky cove will be our last stop where we will learn about the extinction of the dinosaurs and how biodiversity has evolved through millions of years. The gorgeous landscape will be our eternal companion, but of course, to finish this experience I'll take you to one of my favourite bars for a pintxo and a drink. During the mornings (not Wednesdays or Thursdays) you can try the unique local Octopus soup which goes very well with a glass of Txakoli local white wine or Craft Apple Cider. See you!

My name is Angel and I'm a freelance guide, an environmental scientist and a very friendly and knowledgable person - the best combination for guiding you along this amazing coastline! Travelling and living in Europe and South America with my wife Scarlett and son; but also working in the tourism industry, has given me a real sense of what an excellent experience needs to include. Let me offer this, an immersion into both the incredible natural and cultural heritage of the Basque coast. We came to live to this stretch of coast with Scarlett and found a paradise for our little family, specially considering my science background and her Basque roots. Often our guests write back to us telling us how this experience has changed their way of seeing the landscape. Want to know why? Come and experience it by yourself!
One local Pintxo at a family run bar. Vegetarian and Glutenfree options are available.
One drink of your choice. I'd suggest locally produced apple cider or Txakoli, a white wine from a local variety of grape,…
One way ticket from San Sebastian to Zumaia.
A makila traditional walking stick and the use of umbrella and poncho in case of rain.
At the bar, we'll be able to try the unique and traditional octopus soup, coupled with locally produced txakoli white wine or craft apple cider. Sometimes during the morning we can find the church open, allowing us to enter this 13th century building.
This can be a child (>2) friendly activity, but tell me in advance if there are children in your group, so I can include activities that will suit them better or I can provide a backpack carrier if needed.
