San Sebastián
San Juan de Gaztelugatxe

Spend a magical day discovering one of the most special places in Biscay, San Juan de Gaztelugatxe, and the capital of Guipuzcoa, San Sebastian, with this excursion organised by Buendía Tours.

We will meet next to the Puppy sculpture in Bilbao, and we will go to the point where the bus will be waiting for us to start this excursion. 

Upon arrival in San Sebastian, the first destination, we will take a guided tour of the old town, learning about the history of the city, enjoying the unique atmosphere of the port, and the views of Mount Igeldo or Urgul from La Concha Bay. 

Afterwards, there will be some free time for you to enjoy on your own -we recommend you try some typical pintxos- or to continue discovering the surroundings. With either option, you'll be able to soak up the essence of Donostia beyond the tourist spots. 

After a few hours in the city, we'll get back on the bus to head to the next and probably most awaited visit: Rocadragon, one of the key settings in the Game of Thrones series.

To get to the hermitage, located at the top, you'll have to put on your trainers and get your legs going by crossing the stone bridge made up of 241 stairs. If you prefer not to go up, you can stay in the bar area.

At the viewpoint, we will learn about the history of the place, and then we will go to the bridge together. Normally, access is required, but with this activity, it is guaranteed.

Get your camera ready because the sunset will give you unique panoramic views of the sunset over the cliffs of Bakio. Disconnect, relax and recharge your batteries while you enjoy the spectacle with the sea breeze caressing you.

After this intense day, you will return to Bilbao around 19:00 in the evening. Surround yourself with your family and friends and enjoy a unique day in two essential places in the Basque Country. Don't miss it!
