Breathe in Countryside & Folklore
|Private||Fully guided||Spring – Winter||Main meal included|
Join us on a countryside excursion into the world of long-wooly Latxa sheep. Learn how to make cheese, and visit historic monuments in the region. The Heart of Euskal Herria is an exciting and interesting place to spend the day, especially with the charming young shepherds and faithful sheepdogs who will take us on a countryside excursion. Watch the mastery of sheepdogs as they herd the flock to and fro at the shepherd's call. From the green rolling hills to the cheese-making hut, where we roll up our sleeves and learn how the famous artisanal Idiazabal cheese is made. Take in the magnificent views as we drive to San Miguel de Aralar where we learn how San Miguel killed the dragon, and then back down to the foothills to savor free-range, acorn-fed Iberian pork, each cut of which is beautifully marbled and full of flavor. Finally we go underground to visit the mystic Mendukilo caves.
