With lush and wild landscapes that swallow up a third of France and two thirds of Spain, the beauty of the Basque Country has inspired cyclists for centuries. From craggy coast to majestic mountains; your cycling adventure of the Basque Country can take you from the surf capped Atlantic Coast to the sky puncturing peaks of the High Pyrenees Mountains.
Endless Shades of Green
The Basque Country is unlike any other place; caught between the borders of France and Spain, this pocket of rugged terrain is brimming with picturesque sleepy villages, orchards, patchwork fields, roaming animals and endless shades of green, making it one of the finest spots for Europe cycling tours.
Steep Sculpted Climbs
While the Basque Mountains may lend themselves to a lower elevation than those found in the High Pyrenees, they are sculpted to be rugged and steep – enticing those cyclists who love Basque Pyrenees bike tours that come served with plenty of challenges. Those cyclists seeking gentler yet equally scenic rides will also be spoilt for choice in the Pyrenees, where there are mountain climbs matched to every level.
A Rich Cultural Heritage
The Basque people are fiercely proud of their rich culture and culinary history. San Sebastian on the Spanish Basque Coast and Bayonne on the French Basque coast are some of the foodie capitals of the world, but even beyond the buzz of the cities you can find incredible tastes that weave together the wonders of ocean, land, farming, and fertile ground. On our Basque Pyrenees bike tours, you can experience plate to palate perfection.
