Basque Highlands Hike & Cheese Farm
A landscape of rolling hills, bucolic farms and sheep unfold before your eyes. The smell of cheese lingers in the air while we drive through these little towns filled with farms. Our day begins in one of the most spectacular natural parks of the Basque Country.
A light and easy trek in this amazing setting, following a famous trail that was built by the roman and later used by the royals to cross the borders in the past centuries.
We will make our way to a real sheep farm, located in the rolling Basque hills, to taste and learn about one of the culinary icons of the area, Idiazabal cheese.
ENEKO, sixth generation cheese maker, opens his farm and heart to us. His eyes and smile tells us he is quite happy following the family tradition. You will step back in time while you visit this 17th century old farm and taste its award-winning cheese.
How do we end a perfect day? Eating. Enjoy lunch at a restaurant formed by students from the 1st promotion of the Gastronomy Degree of the Basque Culinary Center.
