Itinerary

When does my tour start?

Tour time will be set to fit in with your arrival time.



When do I return to port after my tour/excursion?

The tour is 5 hours in length so you will be returned in plenty of time for your cruise ship departure.
All tour times are based on Shore time (i.e. local time, - not ship time)

The Basque coast is a wild and natural place famous for its traditions, its wine and, of course, its wonderful gastronomy. Your Basque coastal tour begins with a drive out of Bilbao and through the thriving towns of Barakaldo, Sestao and Portugalete, heading out towards the coast.

Your first stop is Getxo, with its famous Hanging Bridge. Here you will have the chance to climb the bridge to see the magnificent views from the top. This is an excellent opportunity to take some wonderful holiday photographs and to see the very best of the Basque area.

Then, the tour will take you further along the coast to the fishing village of Bermeo. You will stop here and get the chance to stretch and soak up a little of the sun and pause to enjoy the sea views. Even further along the coast is Mundaka, a beautiful place with marvellous views of the Biosphere Reserve of Urdaibai. Your coastal trail finally reaches Gernika, ancient meeting place of the Lords of Bizkaia, where you will have the chance to visit the famous Opera House and Tree Boards before the return journey.

Basic Itinerary:

  • ​Leave Bilbao port
  • Drive through Barakaldo, Sestao and Portugalete
  • Visit Getxo, with its famous Hanging Bridge
  • Visit the fishing village of Bermeo
