Holidays in The Basque Country

The Basque Country: World-class gastronomy

The Basque country is a region of great contrasts where you can find everything no matter what you are looking for. Here culture runs throughout several first level festivals. The Basque country is also monumental and offers an interesting historical and artistic heritage such as Guggemheim Museum in Bilbao.

Its landscape is diverse and ranges from mountains where you can go hiking to sandy beaches and high cliffs. Most Basque beaches are well equipped and offer the possibility to practice many water sports like surfing, sailing, canoeing and diving, among others.

Basques are people with ancient traditions and have turned this into competitive sports. Urban people are very elegant and cosmopolitan.

The pleasure of eating and drinking is considered an essential part of the local culture. Proofs of this are its markets, restaurants and bars. “Gastronomy societies” are very popular in the Basque country and only men are allowed (however this is changing nowadays and some of these societies are starting to welcome women). A traditional cuisine, based on top quality ingredients, which has jumped beyond borders, allows the visitor to choose from a wide range of tastes.
