Our Story

Travel Basque Country is an online guide about the Basque County in Northern Spain. At Travel Basque Country you can plan and book your trip, choose from hand-selected experiences and meet the locals. After living in the Bay Area and moving to Bilbao, we immediately saw an opportunity to capture many of the wonderful things that the Basque Country has to offer and share this knowledge with others. Combining our love for group travel, professional experience and network we created this site to help others find authentic local experiences.

Get to know the Basque Country! Here you will find distinct itineraries including city guides to Bilbao, Vitoria and San Sebastian. Read about the history, culture, fiestas and traditions of this region that make it unique. We've translated and improved the readability of loads of historical anecdotes to add to the cultural experience. 

The best way to learn about a new place is to Meet the Locals, choose from the many experiences we've curated or let us plan a custom trip for you. See the Basque Country from a new perspective by booking a local guide. Learn about the amazing cuisine, architecture, traditional fiestas, fight for independence, industrialization and maritime history over a great meal or even a hike. Our network of locals shares a passion for travel, food, culture and tradition, it includes athletes, chefs, professional guides, museums, kayakers, surfers, restaurant owners, hotel owners, independent tour operators, writers, poets, musicians and much more.

We look forward to hearing about your trip and wish you a pleasant journey!

Ondo ibili!
