Full description
After gathering with your group and guide in San Sebastian, take the trian to Zumaia where your tour will begin as you move between the narrow medieval streets and buildings of the little village. This area is famous for having the most incredible cliffs of the Basque coast, and whilst there you will not only learn about the history of the unique place, but also the geology of the region. You will also be able to observe hidden fossils as you walk through it.

The next stop on your tour will be Itzurun beach at the UNESCO Geopark. Receive a first-hand experience of the many rocks and unique layers. This stop will be followed by a walk around the iconic "Ermita de San Telmo” for sightseeing, and last but not least, you will visit the rocky cove of Algorri, where secrets of dinosaurs and biodiversity have evolved through millions of years will be revealed

To finish your experience, you will be guided to a family-run tavern to have a drink of your choice accompanied by a Pintxo. You will be able to try for example a glass of local Txakoli white wine, coupled with a local and traditional octopus soup, the perfect end to your tour.
