Bilbao: Off-the-Beaten-Path Seaside Cycling Tour

1. Bilbao: Off-the-Beaten-Path Seaside Cycling Tour

Explore the Bilbao seaside by bike on this 2.5-hour fun and informative guided tour. Start your tour right at the feet of the iconic Vizcaya Bridge, where you’ll learn about its history, fun facts, and the present role of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. After a pleasant ride along the seaside, enjoy your first stop at Puerto Viejo. Beautiful and filled with history and anecdotes, you’ll have the freedom to roam and walk around its hidden corners and streets. Blend in among the locals and join them as we taste some world-famous pintxos (small snacks), and maybe a glass of wine, or a Caña for beer lovers.   You’ll then continue on to a few secret local spots before heading on to the route to the Cliffs where you’ll experience the Biscay coastline at its best. With its unmatched scenery, the majesty of the sea and fresh air will accompany you for one of the most beautiful bike routes in the Basque country.   After the tour, you can enjoy the beautiful Arrigunaga beach just meters away, grab a bite in one of its panoramic resto-bars, have a drink with your feet on the sand at the beach bar, or just read your book on the beach.

Our guide Benyet was excellent, a native of the Basque region he had a deep and personal connection to Bilbao and Getxo. We left the tour with a great appreciation of the amazing history of the area. From farming, whaling, heavy industry to the amazing Guggenheim. The only negative was the trip back from Getxo, if your 65 plus navigating the Metro was a challenge.

Nice bike ride along the beautiful coastline, something different from the city center. Learned a lot about the Basque culture thanks to our fantastic guide Renato! In the afternoon we ate tasty tortillas. In short, highly recommended.

Our guide Renato was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed this bike tour. I highly recommend it.
