Itinerary Description:

Start in San Sebastián in Basque country, a city considered by many to be one of Europe's culinary capitals and among the best places in the world to eat. The Michelin stars shine brightly here, and the celebrated restaurants range from the contemporary to the classic. Indulge in the pintxo (tapas) culture on a walking tour through Old Town, mingling the tasty dishes with the storied history of the city. Outside San Sebastián, taste wine in coastal Getaria, visit a pig farm and anchovies factory, catch your own fish in the Cantabrian Sea, and craft cider within a centuries-old cider house. The thread of tradition is woven throughout your Spain culinary tour - every ingredient and industry has a significant place in Basque country history, and your private guide will reveal these connections with insight from bygone eras and the talented craftsmen of today.

Continue to Bilbao, the largest city in the Basque region, and an unmatched cultural hotbed. Your Spain culinary tour is injected with an array of activities in Bilbao. A private tour with a museum expert uncovers the contemporary magic of the Guggenheim Museum, and a walking tour of the city showcases its inspiring architectural achievements. There is more to taste here too, and a pintxos and wine tasting tour of the "seven streets" will leave you completely sated.

This Spain culinary tour pairs perfectly with other areas in Spain, Portugal, and France. Your Ker & Downey luxury travel consultant can help you craft a custom travel itinerary that encompasses all you wish to experience.
