8. San Sebastián: Electric Scooter Tour
Explore the stunning city of San Sebastián, riding an electric scooter. Discover five neighborhoods, four sculptures, three beaches, two emblematic plazas, and a picturesque river.
Start at the foot of Mount Ulia, in the trendy neighborhood of Sagües, which is popular with surfers. Stop next to el muro (the wall) to see the sculpture of La Paloma de la Paz (the Dove of Peace) by Nestor Basterretxea, an emblem of the importance of peace, freedom, and coexistence.
After catching some views of Zurriola beach, arrive at the Urumea River to see the main architectural trends in San Sebastián. Travel en route to Urgull, an old military fort that has protected the city for centuries. From here, take in the fantastic views of the bay of La Concha.
Go to the port and the access gates to the Old Town. Enjoy the 2.5 kilometers that separate the Town Hall from the sculpture of the Wind Comb by Eduardo Chillida, at the other end of the Bay. See a bay in the perfect shape of a shell, a spa, old trees twisted by the maritime winds, and a palace that was the summer resort of Spanish Royalty for several years.
Start at the top of Mount Igueldo and get the most amazing views of the city. Learn about the history of the Basque Country, the Bay of Biscay, and the role of San Sebastián. Stop at Plaza Easo and Plaza Gipuzkoa. Return to Gros to finish the tour in the purest Ikusnahi style, with a pintxo, a glass of wine, and a toast on the trendiest street in the neighborhood.
