Just down the coastline from San Sebastián is a beautiful, unique village, rich in food culture and history. Join our local expert guides on an exploration of Getaria, the picturesque nucleus of fishing, txakoli winemaking, and grilled seafood.
We start our visit to this little-known gem with a stroll through its cobblestone streets, making our way to its working port. Still one of the most important entry points in Basque Country for fresh tuna and shiny Cantabrian anchovies, Getaria’s port is teeming with activity. Visit artisans that hand pack fish conserves before heading up to a txakoli bodega, for a unique tasting that will take you straight to the heart of Basque flavors. Learn more at the source about this fizzy, almost salty white wine, which is firmly rooted in its local terror and, at the moment, experiencing a renaissance.
Go from the seaside to the countryside, learning about Basque cuisine at its roots, and finish with a stop in the bustling surfer village of Zarautz, where you will toast over pintxos and wines with your guide and new friends in a mini tour of the local pintxo scene.
