The Guide and the Guide Book

Philip Cooper

My name is Philip Cooper and I am the author of the guide Landscapes of the Basque Country of Spain and France published in the UK by Sunflower Guides  (brand new 2023 4th edition now out!)

   Guided Walks

I am based in Donostia-San Sebastián, the renowned queen of the Basque coast, and walking is my passion, which is why I like to share my experiences of offering half-day and full-day Guided Walks to some of the most beautiful yet often hidden corners of the Basque Country. For those who wish to do a shorter hike combined with visits to charming villages, there are also Guided Short Walks/Day Trips

            Self-guided Walks

You can choose from one of two multi-day hikes: the Baztan-Bidasoa Route and the Inland and Coastal Gipuzkoa Route. On these routes you will also stay in and around some of the most attractive traditional Basque villages at charming rural inns and working farms. Both self-guided hikes include the following: all accommodation, meals and luggage transfer, together with full instructions, coordinates and detailed digital and printed maps.
