Description

Extensive pastures, beautiful beech forests and exotic archaeological remains are just some of the spots we’ll explore on this 3-day hike around the Aitzgorri massif in the Basque Country!

Located in the western Pyrenees, the Basque Country is famous for having its own language, culinary traditions, and a unique and magical geographic and cultural landscape. During this 3-day hiking trip, we’ll discover the amazing Aitzkorri massif (1,528 m) between the two provinces of Gipuzkoa and Alava. For thousands of years this area has been home to Basque shepherds that have taken care of their pastures and forests, making this region one of the most interesting in the country.

Our starting point and accommodation will be at Fondo de Urbia which will be the ideal place to rest after a long day of walking through the magnificent limestone peaks like the Arbelaitz, Botreaiz, Artzanburu and many more!

To participate in this program all participants will need to have some prior hiking experience as well as a good fitness level. Of course, I will be there every step of the way to make sure all participants are safe and having fun at all times!

Suitable for adventurers and nature lovers, if you are ready to take on this 3-day hike around the Aitzgorri massif, request to book this trip and get ready for an experience you’ll never forget!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
