From Bilbao: Gaztelugatxe and Gernika Tour

1. From Bilbao: Gaztelugatxe and Gernika Tour

Benefit from pick-up at your hotel in Bilbao, and then get back to nature on a trip to the amazing rock islet of Gaztelugatxe, located on the coast of Bizkaia just 35 kilometers from Bilbao city center. Arrive at the viewpoint and get 2 hours of free time to explore independently. Use the time to climb to the 10th-century hermitage of San Juan de Gaztelugatxe, where you can touch the bell of the chapel three times and make a wish. Soak up the stunning views of the Bay of Biscay before traveling to Bermeo to take a walking tour of the charming fishing village. Continue to the historic town of Gernika, site of one of the first aerial bombings by Nazi Germany, and visit the Casa de Juntas (Assembly House) with the famous Tree of Guernica that symbolizes the traditional freedom of the people.

I thoroughly enjoyed the climb to the church at Gaztelugatxe. our tour guide, Stefan, provided lots of intetedting insights about the places we visited and the Basque country and culture. it was an excellent trip.

We had a great guide Stefan who made us laugh, we had a great time (the guide speaks Spanish and English), Gastelugaxe is a beautiful place, thank you to the tour operator for showing us this splendid place

This tour is an excellent combination of exercise in nature (climb to Gazlelugataxe) and history (Gernika).

On time pick up was great and our Guide Stefan was excellent with a great understanding of English

Unai was a fantastic guide, one of the best tours I've ever had.
