Full description
Catch the train from San Sebastián to Zarautz. Walk the Camino de Santiago, also known as the Way of Saint James. Explore its northern route on a guided hike, learning the history of the lands on the way. End the tour by unwinding with a wine session at a Txakoli winery. Begin your hike in the small town of Zarautz. Visit the old town and the market. Understand how Basque society has evolved over time, integrating wine and the Christian religion in its culture. Then, continue along the old "Camino del Norte" through the hills and by the ocean. Pass a centuries-old hermitage with incredible views, admiring the vineyards and idyllic rural surroundings on the way. Be rewarded for your efforts after you descend the mountain to visit the Txakolindegi, a txakoli winery in Basque, Gaintza. Learn how they make Txakoli Basque wine in an environmentally responsible way. Taste the wine accompanied by anchovies and Bonito del Norte. Have a fun time with the family that owns the winery. You can even buy some bottles for a cheaper price than in the supermarkets. End this experience by walking through the narrow streets of the medieval town of Getaria. Learn about the lives of its most illustrious inhabitants. Get suggestions on places to eat at from your guide at the end of the tour.
