The Basque Sea at your Table
Day culinary excursion to the Basque Coast from San Sebastian
The winery of Txakoli was so fascinating, and the fresh seafood lunch at the fishing port with a rural seascape was unforgettable.
We very much enjoyed our tours with Andoni and Jon. They were enthusiastic and knowledgeable, and made our stay in San Sebastian very memorable. The coast tour was great…We would highly recommend them.
At a restaurant viewing the beautiful fishing port in Guetaria we enjoyed very much the atmosphere together with simple and fresh sea food…Visiting the winery was a memorable experience…
B: Breakfast / L: Lunch / D: Dinner
Day One – San Sebastian, Txacoli & Fishing Town
Meet your guide for a private chauffeured ride along the Basque coast. Before leaving San Sebastian, if so you wish, stop for a visit to El Peine de los Vientos (the Wind Comb), the impressive sculptures of famous artist Eduardo Chillida, and enjoy the magnificent views of the city from its spectacular setting.
Continue along the coastal route to the wine producing region of Getaria, known for its Txakoli, one of the world’s finest white wines. Learn all about it visiting a family owned winery, set on the green hills of this stunningly beautiful wine region. Discover their Txakoli wines, made with local grapes varieties that grow on terraces overlooking the sea; a guided tasting by your friendly hosts will serve as a wonderful introduction.
After this, it’s time to savor the exceptional quality of another culinary icon of the area, for which Txakoli is a perfect match, grilled fish. Enjoy the day’s fresh fish at one of the traditional fish and seafood taverns overlooking the port of Getaria. With the help of our guide, make your own choice, according to your taste and seasonal availability.
After lunch, take a stroll through this enchanting fishing town, home to Elcano – the first sailor to circumnavigate the world. Enjoy its picturesque atmosphere and the fisherman’s houses with their beautiful wooden balconies.
Enjoy it all in a laid-back atmosphere where you set the pace. When you’re ready, your driver will take you back to San Sebastian, where the journey ends.
