Itinerary

We will start the day visiting a real sheep farm, located near San Sebastian at the foot of Mt. Adarra, to taste and learn about one of the culinary icons of the area, Idiazabal cheese. During the tour, the owner will lead us through the farm and we will learn step by step the process involved creating cheese, from the feeding of the flock to their milking, the cheese making, and the storage of the cheese for their healing in the cold-storage room. After the tour, it is time to taste some Idiazabal cheese from the farm, and if you wish can purchase local products in the little shop. Continuing our tour we will make our way to the coast and we will visit a small family owned Txakoli winery to understand the process of making this particular sparkling wine elaborated from a unique vine.

The grape, Hondarrabi-Zuri, receives the gentle caress of the breeze from the Cantabrian Sea, which makes this wine so special in the world. After the tasting, we will head to the fishing town of Getaria. Having set the mood with these savory visits, you’ll be just about ready for lunch in one of the typical grilled fish restaurants at the harbor of the captivating fishing town of Getaria. Before lunch, we will go into town and take pleasure in a relaxing stroll through the enchanting Medieval streets of the center, and the picturesque color and charm of the fisherman’s houses with their beautiful wooden balconies. The town’s location, perched on the hills overlooking the sea, offers spectacular views that will stay in your memory forever.
