Leaving Bilbao we reach the Urkiola Sanctuary, one of the most ancient and worshipped places of the province. Not far away we find the Viewpoint of Irugurutxeta or Viewpoint of the Three Crosses, an outstanding place of natural beauty with incredible views of the mountains that compose the Natural Park; Amboto, Alluitx, Astxiki, Untxillatz, Errialtabaso and Saibi.
We will traverse a route enjoying the rocky landscapes, beech and oak woods, river runs, green mountains and grasslands of the first Natural Park in Bizkaia.
To continue with a touch of Basque tradition, we enter a “baserri” or “caserio”, a traditional homestead where we will get to see for ourselves the way of life of a Shepherd and their incredible skills of guiding the herd with the help of trained dogs. Later we will enjoy a traditional meal in a typical rural environment with amazing views of the Atxondo valley.
To finish up the journey, we will visit the beautiful villa of Elorrio with it’s necropolis, cruisers, palaces, fountains and enchanted places, declared as an Historical-Artistic Collection.
