What you'll do

We will meet in Zumaia, a little village west of San Sebastian, famous for appearing in some films and series and for having the most incredible cliffs of the Basque coast. Here, while we walk its streets and buildings, we will discover the history and geology of this unique place at the Basque Coast UNESCO Global Geopark, an area that holds a geological heritage of more than 60 million years! Some hidden fossils will be part of our way!

After admiring the village's history we will go off the beaten path to find some unique views where not even local often go to and there, understand why this is a Geopark. After seeing this unique views we'll descent to Itzurun beach to walk along it and learn about the incredible geological heritage. We'll then visit the iconic "Ermita de San Telmo” where we'll do some more fossil spotting and sightseeing. Algorri rocky cove will be our last stop where we will learn about the extinction of the dinosaurs and how biodiversity has evolved through millions of years.

The gorgeous landscape will be our eternal companion, but of course, to finish this experience I'll take you to one of my favourite bars to treat you with a pintxo and a drink.

See you!

My name is Angel and I'm a freelance guide, an environmental scientist and a very friendly and knowledgable person - the best combination for guiding you along this amazing coastline! Travelling and living in Europe and South America with my wife Scarlett and son; but also working in the tourism industry, has given me a real sense of what an excellent experience needs to include. Let me offer this, an immersion into both the incredible natural and cultural heritage of the Basque coast.
We came to live to this stretch of coast with Scarlett and found a paradise for our little family, specially considering my science background and her Basque roots.
Often our guests write back to us telling us how this experience has changed their way of seeing the landscape.

Where you'll be

During this experience we will be able to walk along historical parts of the village plus walk up a hill where villagers use to spot whales and the rebels, their enemies during Franco's dictatorship. Not many people go there and often it is just us.
At the bar, we'll be able to try a locally produced txakoli white wine or craft apple cider or any other of your choice.

Wonderful experience! Angel's expertise, kindness and humor allowed us to truly enjoy the morning exploring the Geo Park. Although we hike and explore a lot on our own at home in the Pacific Northwest, having a local who knows the tides, the beach and the paths made it fun and safe. Angel is an excellent teacher and guide! And the walking stick was so helpful!
