Basque Food Adventure

From £1749 for 7 days
Trip Overview
Home to nearly thirty Michelin-starred restaurants and where people spend most of their disposable income on food, it comes as no surprise that Spain, and in particular the Basque region, represents one of the best destinations for a foodie trip. Due to its distinctive geographic and cultural landscape, the mix of sea and mountain cultures offers an incredible food range. Our comprehensive food journey starts in Bilbao when we will visit the famous markets and have a cookery class with a chef from a Michelin-recommended restaurant. We will then head to pilgrimage city of Logroño and sample the excellent pintxos (Basque-style tapas) on offer, before exploring a vineyard in Rioja to learn more about the wine-making tradition of this region. In the Basque capital of San Sebastián, we will enjoy some of the city's best pintxos then end the trip with a unique culinary experience, dining at an exclusive gastronomy society.
