Hike part of EL CAMINO ( The Way) along the coast

Start the walk in your Hotel in San Sebastian, and hike this comfortable medieval Christian pilgrimage route that overlooks the breathtaking Basque Coast, finishing in the picturesque Pasajes de San Juan where we will have a very well deserved lunch in a waterfront restaurant

Made famous from the 2010 American film The Way (featuring Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez), the trails are perfect for scenic walks

Walking time: around 3 hours, with multiple stops along the way for pictures, snacks, rest etc.

The mountainside is etched with a centuries-old walking trail that was once a Christian pilgrimage route to the town of Santiago de Compostela, where St James’ remains are said to be buried.

Known as the Way of St James or the Pilgrims’ Way, the coastal trail is now as popular for its views as it is for its history, offering incomparable vistas of San Sebastian and the Basque Coast.

Hiking rocky paths, we will make plenty of stops to soak up the panoramas. The route heads down the hill and goes at a steady pace, allowing you to focus on the idyllic scenery stretched out before you. Once we arrive to Pasajes San Pedro on the Bay of Pasaia, we will board a sightseeing boat to cross the waters to Pasajes San Juan.

A very well deserved pintxo and a glass of wine will be awaiting in a waterfront bar in Pasajes San Juan, a captivating coastal village, with very narrow streets, where the 19th-century French poet Victor Hugo found inspiration.

We will board a public bus back to San Sebastian(tickets included)
