I arrange a variety of guided day walks both within the Baztan-Bidasoa region covered under the self-guided walks section and in other parts of the Basque Country. These walks are geared to visitors who would like to get a taste of the landscapes and villages in the region while holidaying in, say, Donostia-San Sebastián. Included are my personal guiding services throughout and transfers to and from your hotel to trailheads. Download BasqueCountryWalks_price_list_Guided_Walks_2018-2019 to see prices for all half/full-day options. New walks are regularly being added, so watch this space!

In the sections Guided Walks Gipukzoa and Guided Walks Navarra of this website can be found sample routes  that are some of my personal favourites and which I consider of great interest to the visitor, but I will be gradually adding more routes to each section and extending options to cover the other Basque provinces over time. If there is a specific area you wish to explore that is not covered by the walks described, let me know and I will also try to arrange this. Note that walking times shown are actual walking times at steady to slowish pace, not including rest/food/photo stops, for which a good estimate is to add an extra 20% to the total time given. Trailheads for all walks are within an hour by car of Donostia-San Sebastián.

Please note that I also offer a series of guided short walks of up to 2h30min duration which are considerably less strenuous than the guided walks described in this section, and thus suitable for walkers/ramblers of all ages. These walks can also be extended to a full day by combining the walk itself with a traditional lunch in a rural restaurant/inn and a drive through pretty villages before returning to Donostia-San Sebastián. See Guided Short Walks/Day Trips  for more details.
