The north path to Santiago and a visit to a winery.

After catching the train in San Sebastián, we will start this walk through the Camino del Norte in the small town of Zarautz, where we will visit the old quarter and the market, and understand how Basque society has evolved over time, integrating wine and the Christian religion in its culture.

Then, we will continue along the old “Camino del Norte” through the mountain. It will be difficult, but we will pass by a centuries-old hermitage with incredible views, admiring the vineyards and an idyllic rural setting.

As a reward for our effort, we will descend the mountain to visit a Txakolindegi (txakoli winery), where you will learn how Txakoli is elaborated in a fully environmentally responsible way. There we will taste the wine, we will eat Anchovies and Bonito del Norte and we will have a great time with the family that owns the winery. We can even buy some bottles for a cheaper price than in the supermarkets!

We will end this experience by walking through the narrow streets of the medieval town of Getaria, where we will remember the exploits and ways of life of its most illustrious inhabitants.

The guide will be happy to suggest places to eat or show you how to return to your hotel after this “Camino del Norte” experience.
