Half-Day Way of St. James Hiking Tour from San Sebastián
From USD 72.58
Overview
Spend a half-day away from the crowds of San Sebastián and immerse yourself in nature on a hiking tour of Mount Ulia. Follow the “Camino de Santiago” and learn more about the ridge’s history from your local guide. Admire the striking Basque landscape, visit local villages, and gain insight into local life, with a sightseeing boat tour across Pasaia San Pedro’s bay. A complimentary glass of txakoli (sparkling white wine) is included.
What to Expect

Begin your tour at a central location in San Sebastián, where you'll meet your guide and group. Then, begin your journey to Mount Ulia. As you hike the former pilgrimage route, listen to your guide share insights into the path’s age-old legacy and admire striking views along the coastal trail.

Pause in Pasaia San Pedro and discover more about village life and culture. Hear about the town’s traditional rowing competitions and games of “pelota” and then enjoy an illuminating cruise of the bay toward Santiago Square. Here, alight and visit a nearby terrace bar and relax with a refreshing glass of txakoli (sparkling white wine).

When replenished, continue by foot to Pasaia. Explore the village’s charming streets and then catch a public bus back to San Sebastián. Enjoy the ride back to the city, before the tour concludes back at the original point of departure.

Diversity and memorability for a beautiful vacation experience!

We loved this tour for a number of reasons. The first is, that the Camino is a famous walk and we were only in town for a week, so it was incredible to participate on a portion of the Camino. The second is, the landscape...More

Yes I would agree with Meg. Maybe just let your guide know about the cliff edges, but I felt very safe.
