Overview

Don’t have enough time to walk the entire Camino de Santiago? Join this San Sebastián tour to get a taste of ‘The Way’ in a day. Hike a stunning stretch of coastline, cross an inlet by boat, then kick back in a bar with a wine in hand.

Be swept away by beautiful Basque Country on this hiking tour in San Sebastián that leads you to epic views and uncovers local hidden gems in this beautiful part of Spain. To kick off this San Sebastián tour, we head out of town and up to Ulia Mountain, where we enjoy a wonderful view before hiking along the coastal St. James Way. (Please be prepared for a steep beginning — but we promise it gets easier as you go! There are several ups and downs along the route, but the hardest part is at the start). As you continue your Basque adventure, your local guide highlights points of interest and gives you all the insider knowledge you need to know, knowledge that only a local would know!

As we continue our San Sebastián walking tour, we make our way to the lighthouse of La Plata and from there we head down the hill to Pasaia San Pedro. Here, we discover some unique cultural traditions and customs before embarking on a boat across the sea inlet. Breathe in the fresh air as your local guide tells you about the phenomenal scenery.

We enjoy more wicked views of the mountains and coast before coming to rest on the terrace of a bar in the beautiful port-side Santiago Square. After taking a moment here to soak up your surroundings and indulge in txakoli (regional white wine), we wander the narrow streets of Pasaia, before returning to San Sebastián by public transport. Your Basque tour ends here, but your local guide is happy to give you some more tips so that you can continue to explore local life, or let you know the best route back to your accommodation. Enjoy your vacation with us.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Please note: This is a 8.5 km hike, designed to take three hours with an extra two hours at the end to enjoy the town of Pasaia and come back to San Sebastián by public bus. You’re walking up a steep hill at the beginning that lasts for 1.5 km. The terrain isn’t rocky but there are lots of steps to climb! The rest of the hike lasts for 7 km and while it is more moderate, you need to navigate your way across a few rocks, which can be challenging for some. During each section, the total gain of altitude is about 180 m (360 m in total).
  • This hike is not recommended for those suffering from heart problems or high blood pressure and should be avoided by those with hip or knee replacements or anyone who is afraid of heights. Please contact us if you have any concerns regarding the physical requirements of the San Sebastián hiking tour; private tours are available for those looking for a slower pace.
