What to expect

Meet your Guide at your Accommodation in Bordeaux. Head towards famed oceanside resort Biarritz. Enjoy some free time for lunch and exploring.

Next, pick your preferred activity for the afternoon: your guide will suggest different options such as a visit to Saint Jean de Luz town, a drive along the coastal road with its fascinating landscapes during which you could experience a unique wine tasting session of wines that are aged in the ocean.

Another option is to head inland to visit some of the most traditional Basque villages that have kept their authenticity through time. Villages such as Ainhoa, Sare or Espelette are a real treat for those discovering the French Basque region for the first time.

Finally, you could also reach Bayonne, birthplace of the original french hot chocolate recipe, and meander through its narrow streets that will immerse you in the Basque Culture.

At the end of the day, you'll be dropped off at your accommodation in Bordeaux
