The Basque Coast of Gipuzkoa Tour from San Sebastian

The beautiful border city of Hondarribia–Fuenterrabia, between Spain and France, is our first stop on our tour of the Gipuzkoan Coast. We will have the opportunity to witness some of the fishing traditions of the village and admire its link with the sea.  Without losing sight of the sea, we will pass through the Bay of Pasajes and admire the picturesque villa of Pasajes de San Juan and head into Zarautz, a famous tourist destination known for its extensive beach (the longest in the Basque Country) and its surf scene. Continuing our trip westward, we will bump into extensive green fields packed with Txakoli vineyards overlooking the sea and catch a glimpse of our next destination: the beautiful coastal town of Getaria, known for being an important fishing sea port, home to the museum of famous fashion designer Cristobal Balenciaga, and the birthplace of Juan Sebastián Elcano, the first man to circumnavigate the earth. Before heading back to our starting point, we will make our last stop at the small town of Zumaia. Starting at the Chapel of San Telmo, we will take a short stroll along the Flysch Route and contemplate one of the most breathtaking sceneries of the entire Basque Coast.

Basque Coast Excursion: Game of Thrones Locations Tour from San Sebastian

Because “winter is here”, of course, we’ll travel westward after morning pick up from your accommodation in San Sebastian to San Juan de Gaztelugatxe, a breathtaking location used in the filming of “Game of Thrones Season 7”. We will disembark the car for a stretch break and stop to admire the imposing views of the islet of San Juan de Gaztelugatxe, located just off the coast in the Bay of Biscay, about 35 km from Bilbao. Surrounded by agitating seas and a ruggedly carved coastline, the islet of Gaztelugatxe is topped by an ancient hermitage devoted to John the Baptist. On foot, we will descend to sea level to encounter the striking double-arch stone bridge along which Jon Snow and Daenerys walk in “Game of Thrones Season 7.” We will follow Jon Snow’s and Danny’s footsteps and hike the 241 steps of the winding footbridge, which connects the mainland to the islet, to reach the magnificent hermitage of San Juan de Gaztelugatxe, where we will, as legend has it, ring its bell three times and make a wish. After stopping for photos and admiring the spectacular views from the top, we will descend from the hermitage to enjoy a much-deserved beer/wine (complimentary). Back in the vehicle, we will continue our route towards the shores of Westeros and the entry point into Dragonstone Castle by heading towards Zumaia, Basque Country. Better known as “The Flysch”, we will descend to the famous beach where Jon Snow docks to meet The Mother of Dragons for the first time, and contemplate its dramatic jagged cliffs and surfing scene. After a short stroll, enjoy a complimentary round of pintxos (Basque tapas) and drinks before your day trip ends with drop-off back at your accommodation in San Sebastian.
