Spend a day discovering the essence of Basque Coast’s villages with this Loyola, Zarauz and San Sebastian day trip.

Early in the morning the guide will pick you up in the center of Bilbao to head towards Guipúzcoa, passing through the towns of Eibar, Elgoibar and Azkoitia, finally stopping at Loyola. Here we will visit the Sanctuary of Loyola, which dates from the 17th to 18th centuries, where we can visit the spectacular Basilica and see the tower house where the Jesuit Ignacio de Loyola was born.

Bordering the coast by Zumaia, we will reach the village of Getaria, birthplace of Juan Sebastián Elcano. We will enjoy free time to visit this coastal town and see the passage of the Arch of Catrapona, the Gothic church of San Salvador from the 15th century, stroll along its narrow streets and have a snack in one of the typical bars and restaurants of the port.

We will continue the journey through Zarauz, the most traditional enclave and tourist reference in Spain since the 19th century. Later we will arrive in San Sebastian, where we will take a full panoramic bus tour through the main avenues and the beach of La Concha. We will also climb Mount Igueldo to contemplate the spectacular views of the bay and end up taking a walk through the old quarter.

Then there will be free time for lunch. The guide will inform you of various options of restaurants and menus so you can choose the one you like best.

In the middle of the afternoon we will start our return to Bilbao, contemplating the magnificent views of the surroundings.

"Yo le dedicaría un día entero a San Sebastián."
El tiempo pasado en Loyola me pareció suficiente pero no así el que se estuvo en Zarauz y San Sebastián. Yo le dedicaría un día entero a San Sebastián. Si a alguien le interesa ver el museo de Balenciaga, no hay tiempo para ello.
