This full-day tour combines a morning easy hike to Mt. Ernio with the visit to the heart of the San Sebastian Region where you can enjoy the traditional Basque food, like the popular black beans stew or the T-Bone steak!
After a short drive of 35 min from San Sebastian, we will begin the ascent of Mount Ernio from a small town called Bidania. From here the trail will go up and down, through some open areas and more forested areas. Higher up we will find a few sections that are quite steep as well as a few rock steps. The effort will be worthwhile because in the summit will discover why this place is called the “balcony of the province” and one of the most visited mountains in the Basque Country. After we take a few pictures in the summit we will slowly come back down to the starting point.
After the beautiful hike you’ll be just about ready for lunch. Today it will be in the countryside, and it could be in one of the typical Basque grill houses where you can savor the exceptional quality of the traditional Basque food like the famous “txuleta”, a delicious T-Bone steak, the baby lamb, or the black beans stew and the cider of course!. After lunch, before coming back to San Sebastian we will stop in Tolosa, the former capital of the province and home of one of the most important Jai-Alai courts, a traditional Basque game exported by Basque emigrants to places such as Miami and the Philippines. We will take a short stroll through the village to see the palaces and ancestral homes inside its beautiful historic quarter.
