A Basque/ Camino Adventure

A Basque/ Camino Adventure

Lete House in Alkiza

Join us in 2022 for a 15 day adventure in Basque Country. 

Travelers can spend either the first week on the Camino and the second week on the Basque experience or the first week on the Basque experience and the second week walking on the Camino. If you wish you could walk both weeks on the Camino and bypass the Basque experience – your choice.

The Basque Experience will be 6 days of touring and tasting Basque culture. Participants will be visiting several Basque historical sites, landmarks, museums, beaches, and experiencing a traditional cider house, pintxo bar hopping (unique hors d’oeuvre appetizers) and other gastronomical delights.

Basque Adventure Packing List

The Camino de Santiago is considered a bucket list destination for many people, whether you consider yourself a spiritual person or not. We will be exploring faith and spirituality during a day visit to Saint John Pied o Port  and walking 5 days on the Camino. Participants will be walking approximately 15 miles a day and be staying with other pilgrims on the journey.
