    The Basque Country, and specifically San Sebastian, is world renowned for its food. We owe a lot of the current hype regarding our cuisine to our marvelous Michelin star chefs and awarded restaurants.

    Historically, however, this reputation is based on the fresh quality of our ingredients, the hard labour of our farmers, and the delicious recipes of our grandmothers that have been safeguarded and perfected through generations. This tour is designed to celebrate this effort.

    By the hand of a local, you will escape the busy city life and drive into the rural heart of the Basque Countryside, where all the magic takes place. We will head first to an Idiazabal Designation of Origin Cheese Farm where you will learn about the elaboration process of our most beloved cheese and enjoy a tasting of some of the products of the farm.

    After the visit to the cheese farm, we will go to a Basque Cider House for lunch to discover a cozy environment where locals meet to enjoy traditional dishes of the Basque Country paired with natural Basque apple cider.

    A typical Basque Cider House Menu includes:

    • Cod omelet
    • Fried cod with green peppers and onions
    • “Txuleta” (Bone-in rib-eye steak)
    • Idiazabal cheese with quince and walnuts
    • Self-serve cider
