Full description

The estuary of the Urdaibai River has many attractions that can be enjoyed in a short trip from Bilbao. The hermitage of Gaztelugatxe, which was the set for Dragonstone in the Game of Thrones series, is a good starting point. Whilst there, enjoy the sea views in contrast to the towering nearby mountain. Take your time and climb up the 241 stairs which take you to the top of Gaztelugatxe, where you can ring the bell three times according to tradition. Following that, the coastal town of Bermeo allows you to see firsthand how old fishing traditions are still maintained in the present day. You then travel from Bermeo to reach Gernika, where rural and agricultural traditions are mixed with their varied histories. Gernika is an important reference town in Basque history, being home to the ancient tree where the medieval kings of Spain swore to respect local laws. It is also where the German bombing took place during the Spanish Civil War, destroying much of the city. At the conclusion of your experience, your driver returns you back to Bilbao.

Important information

Know before you go

  • The tour requires a minimum of 2 people to operate. If it is not reached, the tour will be canceled and you will get either an alternative date or a full refund
  • Due to limited capacity, climbing the 241 stairs to the Gaztelugatxe hermitage is not guaranteed. Instead, you would first visit the town on the Biscayan coast Mundaka, and then a stop would be made to enjoy a panoramic view of San Juan de Gaztelugatxe from the viewpoint
