Why camping in the Basque Country?
The Basque Country is a harmonious blend of joie de vivre, traditions, férias, beaches and mountains.
Discover the Basque mountains during your camping holiday
You can discover the mountainous landscape of the Pyrénées-Atlantiques along the southern coast of the Basque Country.
La Rhune is an incredible place at an altitude of 905m where you can take the tourist train and admire the heights of the Basque Country.
On the roads to our campsite in Espelette you can take in the breathtaking mountain views.
Discover the Basque coast
The Basque Country is also the coast.
You can follow the Basque coastline from Anglet to the famous Côte des Basques at Biarritz, where you can surf and admire the scenery, then on to Bidart and the charm of Saint-Jean de Luz with its calm beach, and finally to Urrugne and a short stopover in Spain.
There is something for everyone!
Basque towns & villages
Indeed, the Basque Country offers a wealth of urban and cultural landscapes. Each city has its own charm and difference.
We’ve got the simplicity, tradition and street charm of Bayonne, the delicacy of Biarritz, the touristy, family-friendly feel of Saint Jean de Luz, the traditional charm of Espelette with its famous pimento pepper…
The Bayonne festivals, the local Casetas and ferias are, of course, what make our department so famous.
These are exceptional events to be experienced; in red and white to respect Basque customs.
Surfing on the Basque coast
The Basque Country means surfing!
We’re all fans of surfing, and our coasts have beaches with big, imposing waves to develop your potential.
Other sports are also representative of the region.
Basque pelota encompasses several ball games. The aim is to send the ball against the wall (pediment).
Rugby is also one of the main sports, with the Biarritz team ranking third nationally among award-winning clubs.
For hiking enthusiasts, the coastal path linking Bidart to Hendaye will delight you.
And for the more courageous, the GR10 hiking trail crosses the Pyrenees. It runs from Hendaye to Saint-Jean Pied de Port, a distance of around 190km.
After the effort, the comfort!
During your stay, you’ll have the pleasure of sampling Basque specialties such as the wonderful Basque cake, Bayonne ham, Basque chicken, Ossau-Iraty cheese, piperade, Axoa d’Espelette, Bayonne chocolate, Irouleguy AOC Basque wine…
A real treat!
We can conclude that the Basque Country is atypical, beautiful, rich in incredible landscapes and traditions. It’s a great place to live, with a welcoming population.
