From the plateau to the sea

Through this “From the plateau to the sea” tour we will know a good part of the natural ecosystems of this spot of the Basque Country, from the solid barriers which are the supports of the plateau, at the surroundings of Sierra Salvada, up to the sea, passing through small towns full of charm in Aiara Valley or in others at the limits of Castile.

Departure from Bilbao will be at 08:00 AM towards Vitoria. Once we arrive in the Capital city of the Basque country, we will enjoy a guided walking tour through the city center to discover its most iconic spots: the new Cathedral, the Basque Parliament, Virgen Blanca square, Town Hall, the Arches, Machete square, San Miguel Church, etc ….

Once having finished our visit to Vitoria-Gasteiz on this “From the plateau to the sea” route, we will follow the route towards Salinas de Añana, one of the most surprising spots of the Basque Country. Here, we will enjoy an interesting guided tour to learn the history, architecture, archeology and biodiversity of the salt.

Having known how the salt is produced and obtained from the earth surface, we will follow the tour towards Orduña, ancient customs city, where we will enjoy a guided visit.

From Orduña, in Biskay, we will enter again the territory of Araba, more specifically the Valley of Aiara with its charming tows and the kindness of its people.

Leaving behind this valley, we will start the last part of our “From the plateau to the sea” tour in the direction of the sea. The next stop in this journey will be Balmaseda, where we will enjoy a lunch at a typical restaurant (included).

After lunch we will pass through the mining area of Bizkaia to reach the coast; Santurtzi and Portugalete. where we will cross the estuary using the Hanging Bridge of Bizkaia (World Heritage by UNESCO) to reach Getxo.

Back to Bilbao. Finish of the “From the plateau to the sea” tour.
