Bask in your Basque Country vacation

Brush up on some phrases in Euskara, Basque Country's official language, and pack your bags for this one-of-a-kind European destination. Sandy beaches, craggy cliffs, captivating architecture, and medieval walled cities are just some of the reasons to explore this region in northern Spain. With a distinct history and identity, Basque Country offers a rich travel experience you won't soon forget. Surfers, foodies, wine lovers, outdoor adventurers, and history buffs all can find their niche here. Live life like a local with waterfront strolls, evening pintxos (aka small plates) at local bars, and relaxing stays at Basque Country vacation rentals.

Beyond the basics in Basque Country

From wine tasting and museum hopping to hiking and hanging ten, there's something for whatever tickles your fancy in Basque Country. To unwind before turning in at Basque Country vacation rentals, you can take a beachfront stroll, shop the boutiques in San Sebastian, or get acquainted with Picasso, Velasquez, and Gehry in the museums of Bilbao. They say the best waves are found surfing in Mundaka, or you can surf the crowds of the region's many festivals including vibrant Basque Carnivals. Hiking and paragliding entice outdoor types, while traditional pinxtos, regional cuisine, and local wines delight amateur and foodies alike.

To the Guggenheim and beyond

The Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao shines bright as the must-see spot that it is, with Instagrammable, Gehry-designed architecture outside and 20th century works inside. The Bilbao Fine Arts museum is the place to spot masterworks from the likes of Picasso and Velasquez. Visit the medieval walled city of Hondarribia or check out the ancient religious site San Juan de Gaztelugatxe. With winding pathways, rocky cliffs, and stunning ocean views, it's no surprise it was used as filming location for Game of Thrones. The waterfront of San Sebastian is beautiful in any season, but La Concha beach is the place to be in summer.

The rain in Spain falls mainly on the coast

The summers in Basque Country are warm and mostly dry, averaging around a pleasant 75 degrees. Pack a poncho if you plan on concentrating on the coast. The coastal winds create great surfing conditions, but you might not come home with a tan as overcast days can be common. Prepare for cooler weather at higher elevations and drier days inland. Winters are cool and rainier, with temperatures averaging between the mid 40s and lower 50s Fahrenheit. Snow and frost are rare but not unheard of in some cities and in the mountains. You'll snag the best deals on Basque Country vacation rentals in the cooler winter months.

More to sea in Basque Country

Basque Country is located in north-central Spain, along the Atlantic Ocean and sharing a small coastal border with France. While not immense in area, Basque Country makes up for its small size with an impressive array of scenery. Experience all the highs and lows (elevation-wise, that is) with travels from the Atlantic coastline along the Bay of Biscay to the peaks of the Basque Mountains, part of the Cantabrian Mountains. Basque Country vacation rentals may find you in the riverside city of Bilbao, the beach town of San Sebastian, a vineyard-laden valley, a mountain town, or a quaint fishing village.
