1 - PYRENEES AND THE SAINT JAMES WAY

On this tour, we like to offer you the option of visiting a part of the inside of the French Basque Country, especially St Jean Pied de Port and its surroundings.

The day will start with a drive from your hotel to Itxassou, our first stop. There we’ll take you on a nice walk along the Nive river surrounded by beautiful nature.

After this stop, we’ll continue to Saint Jean Pied de Port. This place is know worldwide as the starting point of the Saint James Way. There you’ll visit the old walled town, walk over the bridge from the Middle Ages and take a walk through the narrow, colourful and charming streets.

You’ll probably meet pilgrims who are about to start their long journey to Santiago de Compostela. Numerous typical shops offer local products of the region.
In St Jean Pied de Port are many restaurants where you can have a lovely lunch or you can have a picnic round the Citadelle .

After lunch we‘ll visit a winery where you can sample a selection of wines.
You’ll be surprised by the great wine from this region!
After the wine tour, the beautiful St Etienne de Baigorry is waiting for you, with its magnificent church and the charming winding streets.

In St Etienne de Baigorry we‘ll go to a cheesefarm where you can taste the Ardi Gasna, the local cheese. We‘ll also make a stop at the beautiful Chocolaterie Laia.

Finally we‘ll cross the border to Navarre (Spain) to discover and enjoy the pitoresque landscapes of the Pyrenees region. We continue our trip driving through the beautiful Baztan valley towards “home”.

We‘ll arrive back at your hotel around 5pm/6pm.
