Bilbao: Off-the-Beaten-Path Seaside Cycling Tour

1. Bilbao: Off-the-Beaten-Path Seaside Cycling Tour

Explore the Bilbao seaside by bike on this 2.5-hour fun and informative guided tour. Start your tour right at the feet of the iconic Vizcaya Bridge, where you’ll learn about its history, fun facts, and the present role of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. After a pleasant ride along the seaside, enjoy your first stop at Puerto Viejo. Beautiful and filled with history and anecdotes, you’ll have the freedom to roam and walk around its hidden corners and streets. Blend in among the locals and join them as we taste some world-famous pintxos (small snacks), and maybe a glass of wine, or a Caña for beer lovers.   You’ll then continue on to a few secret local spots before heading on to the route to the Cliffs where you’ll experience the Biscay coastline at its best. With its unmatched scenery, the majesty of the sea and fresh air will accompany you for one of the most beautiful bike routes in the Basque country.   After the tour, you can enjoy the beautiful Arrigunaga beach just meters away, grab a bite in one of its panoramic resto-bars, have a drink with your feet on the sand at the beach bar, or just read your book on the beach.

What people are saying about Getxo

NICE WAY TO SPEND SOME TIME

I really enjoyed this trip. It was not too busy and the sun was shining and the gentleman on board was really attentive. The commentary was a bit hit and miss, but that is unavoidable when using headphones. Nobody's fault. Would really recommend this trip.

The audio guide worked well. The boat has a covered area as well as outside area. Snacks -beer-wine available. You can plan where you want to get off and explore. Nice 2-4 hour outing.

Smart bike Excursion. One way and back by underground. Excellent guide, good bike, bottle of water. The 5 hours were perfect. No steep climbs.

Staff were very helpful but the earphones weren’t working very well even when they were replaced.

Informative, refreshing, on time, safe, well organised, good crew!
