Walking time: 2 hours up, 1,15 hours down with multiple stops along the way for pictures, snacks, rest etc.

Across the Northern slopes of Ernio, there are forests of Beeches and Oaks. Between the stones of Ernio, a moon milk river flows, the only one of the world. It is, in fact, formed by a strange substance that nature pours off in solid state and underground Ernio, filters off in liquid state.

This river was discovered years ago by a scientific society but its exact location/source is still secret to prevent its exploitation. (2 hours up, 1:15 hours down)

Just before arriving to the coastal town of Zumaia, we will stop and walk through a very easy path for aprox. 20 minutes to discover an amazing place! At this point of the coast, the mountains drop abruptly to sea level, letting us observe the rough rock formations in real detail.

Home of Juan Sebastian Elcano (Getaria 1487-1526) the man who first sailed around the world.

It is probably one of the best kept medieval centers which best reflects the passing of time. The quality of the buildings, its urban harmony and other factors make Getaria a privileged place in the geography of Gipuzkoa.
