Let us introduce you to the people and places of the storied Basque Country, a grand old region of lively produce markets and elegant old towns, of sunny vineyards and lush green hills.

Platinum Trusted Service Award 2023 Whiteout Landscape


The Basque Country is varied enough to have interest all year round; its vibrant cities and mild coastal weather favour trips deep into winter. Of course, the Cantabrian sea and its Atlantic fronts keep us on our toes with the ever-present possibility of rain. But it’s to this precipitation that we owe the rich greens of the beautiful landscapes.
