Today you will meet your guide and driver below your hotel for a tour of the French Basque Country. Steeped in folklore, the Basques are among the oldest people groups in the world. We’ll begin at Biarritz, one of the most luxurious seaside resorts on the Basque Coast, known for its surfing. Learn the legends of its pirates and whalers. Continue on to St. Jean de Luz, a lovely small village where you’ll see the home of Louis XIV and the St. Jean Baptiste Church. Take some time on your own for lunch here. Finish the day with a walk through medieval Bayonne, UNESCO heritage site, and part of the French St James’ Way. In the late afternoon, we’ll take you back to San Sebastián.
This tour lasts about 7-8 hours.
