We fly over the Romanesque architecture and a diversity of landscapes for a bird’s eye view of the region.

This is a traditional cultural event where the whole village participates: young and old. The kids will have the chance to get involved in the event, just like everyone else. Its roots come from sun worship celebrations, where the village makes little bonfires and everyone makes a wish while jumping over them. The fire jumping is followed by food, wine, merriment.

For lunch expect a spectacular French Basque sampling menu, in one of the best restaurants, if not the best, in this region. Located at the point that separates the Navarra mountain range and the Cantabrian Sea we visit the “Villages of the Witches” and the caves of Zugarramurdi, and the interactive witch museum – ​ideal for kids. Learn historical facts and legends, infusing your surroundings with a magic. We then transfer to the colorful town of Hondarribia and your hotel which is an exquisitely converted 10th-century castle.
