From 890,00 €

This Basque Country crossing will lead you from the mountains to the Atlantic Ocean and partly follows the famous GR10 itinerary - the great crossing of the Pyrenees (866km from the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea).  This itinerary will make you discover the dual nature of the Basque Country : a wild and inhabited territory, a land of culture and traditions, split between two countries, the green of the mountains and the blue of the ocean. This hike offer a sporty approach of all that represents the Basque Country and, as always, our team will be eager to make you discover the area in the best possible way thanks to our local knowledge and establishment and long-term relationships with our partners. We wanted this crossing to be the outcome of our work and our love for the Basque Country ! After a first comfortable night in our accomodation, Maison IPUTXAINIA in Saint Jean Pied de Port, you will get to Col de Ronceveaux - famous in the History - and start your zigzagging trip over the border ! You will also spend 2 nights in the Spanish Basque Country. From hike to hike, the Basque Country will reveal itself to you, between panoramic ridges overflown by vultures, typical villages, small but worth the climb summits, forests full of legends... Finally, the mountains will give way to the Ocean, offering you a well-deserved swim as a farewell… or an invitation to come back some day !
