Itinerary

Day 1Become a Pintxo Chef

Our journey together starts in Bilbao’s downtown where your Northern Spain Travel guides will welcome you. We transfer to Pamplona for a private foodie experience in a 1920s private gastronomy club. Get ready for a Master Chef pintxo course and learn how to make creative pintxos, one of the pillars of traditional local cuisine, but with a touch of international flare. We use all top ingredients in a high quality industrial kitchen to make five delicious creations which are then served for us to enjoy. A visit to Pamplona is never quite complete without a running of the bulls walkabout, and a stroll through the charming cobbled streets in the heart of the historic quarter where we discover 2000 years of history and culture.
