We travel into medieval Navarra. We stroll a portion of the Saint James Way by Puente de la Reina and make a stop to admire the iconic eleventh century Romanesque bridge over the Arga River. We stop again for brunch in the medieval village of Artajona, with its high defensive walls and towers. Our journey continues to the stunning church-fortress in Ujué, voted Navarra’s most beautiful village in 2018. At a restaurant tucked into the winding cobblestone roads, we can enjoy the delicious local specialty migas de pastor – “shepherd’s bread crumbs.” We go on to Olite to receive a private tour of the Olite castle, one of Spain’s more interesting castles, followed by a private wine tasting at the winery next door.

Day 3A Taste of the Saint James Way

The Saint James Way is a twelfth century pilgrimage route the foundations of which are even more ancient Roman roadways. We travel to Puente de la Reina and on to the winery, Castillo de Monjardin, for a wine tasting experience. We journey southwest through vistas of seemingly endless vineyards and olive groves to the last town in Navarra on the pilgrimage route, Viana. Here we will have a late lunch in an asador (a grill house) where the chefs specialize in grilling everything over wood fires, giving you mouth-watering plates of red peppers, lamb chops, and massive T-bone steaks.

Day 4The Beautiful Baztan Valley

We travel northward through the Baztan Valley, which is considered by many to be the most beautiful region of the north. We pass through a magical thousand-year-old oak forest and through pastures where cattle and latxa sheep graze contentedly. The route takes us up a slowly rising, winding mountain pass that brings us to a truly idyllic landscape of green pastures, rolling hills, and picturesque white-washed Basque farm houses. From here we travel on to the town of San Esteban where we enjoy the salty hot springs spa and early dinner in a Michelin recommended country-style restaurant.

Day 5Hemingway in the Pyrenees

Our journey today takes us through charming Basque hamlets and villages to Aoiz, where Hemingway went each morning to take a dip in the Irati River. He described the water here as, “clear as light.” We follow his trail past the village of Aribe, near to where he would go to dream away the afternoons while trout fishing. We continue on into the lush foothills of the Pyrenees, travelling close to parts of the Saint James Way until we reach Burguete, where Hemingway stayed when he came to the area for relaxation. We visit the little hotel he slept in, and even visit his actual room, which the family has kept the same all these years. We sit down to an authentic Hemingway-style lunch in the dining hall where he would eat his meals. We visit the Roncesvalles Colegiata, where most pilgrims begin their St James Way walk.
