Coastline walk tour: the flysch

The flysch: the Basque Coast most famous scenery

If you are looking for a special day of trekking during your stay in Basque country, this would be without any doubt your first choice because Basque landscapes are about green mountains and blue ocean and both of them are mixed with the most harmonious elegance in this magical part of the coast.

Did you know. . .
