Head north and explore the rugged natural beauty of Spain’s coast. Cross the Transporter Bridge of Bizkaia—one of the world’s oldest transporter bridges— to travel winding roads through small towns and charming villages before you arrive at San Juan de Gaztelugatxe. Located on the coast of Biscay and set on a rocky cliff, this tiny islet is home to a 10th century hermitage.

Continue to the town of Mundaka, where you can find impressive views of the Urdaibai Biosphere—boasting golden sands against a backdrop of Holm oak forests, it provides a great photo opportunity! Then head to Guernica—the inspiration for Picasso’s landmark painting of the same name. Complete your tour with a visit to the renowned fishing village of Bermeo, the main port of the Basque Country.
