Walk quiet paths leading you through ever changing and colorful landscapes, from the rolling fields and Mediterranean forests of Navarre to the mountains and vineyards of La Rioja. Soak up centuries of history as you pass the churches of the Camino de Santiago and the hilltop villages of Basque Rioja's heartland. The beautiful surroundings are complemented by premium, small hotels and unique gastronomic experiences giving you a taste of a genuinely unspoiled part of Spain.
Complete this dive into the rural beauty of Rioja with two of the most vibrant Basque cities, Bilbao and Pamplona.
Although this is a self-guided walk, to be sure that you have the best possible trip, our Spanish coordinator is on call to help out at any stage. For the walking, we provide you with not only a GPS device pre-loaded with the maps and routes but also physical notes and maps for you to navigate with. A guide meets you in Pamplona before you start walking to talk you through the trip, the walking directions and operating the GPS device.
This route takes you to the Spanish Toscana, a landscape of colorful, rolling fields, hilltop villages, vineyards and mountains. The area's rich historical past is marked by the Basque culture, the pilgrim’s way to Santiago de Compostela, and the medieval kingdom of Navarre.
This area is also home to some of the best wines in the world, great vegetables and meats, and some of the finest examples of modern Spanish cuisine. Our varied collection of tasteful small hotels make for a walking holiday where the exertions of your hiking are carefully balanced with time to relax in comfort.
The itinerary includes the vibrant city of Bilbao where you can visit the Guggenheim Museum and get an introduction to the Basque culture, that you will enjoy even more in Pamplona with our local guide taking you on a pintxos hopping dinner along the itinerary of the famous "running of the bulls".
