Before you reach the mountains you will make a four-hour stop about one hour drive from Bilbao, where its time for the first activity of the trip, Cave Gorge:
Cave Gorge is a really awesome experience: you get deep into huge caves where you will be able to explore much further than a normal tourist would and beyond paths, light and dryness.

You will find it sometimes necessary to fully rely on each other and jump straight into the darkness. There are typically a little rappelling and climbing in this discipline. This unique experience exists in few places around the world.
On your trip to the mountain-hotel, fantastic rock formations rise high and impressive on both sides of the road and parallel the river.
