Throughout the region, you can enjoy a complete transport network that lets you find an alternative to the private car.
Carpooling, bus, train, “topo” train, bike, shuttles … it’s all set up so you can completely do without the car, or simply park up on arrival and only use it again when you leave.

Eco-certified activities

In the Basque Country, you can find lots of eco-certified activities. Lovers of nature, water sports or land-based sports are well served by a range of visits to natural sites. With rafting in Bidarray, electric scooters on the Basque coast, or a walk in Izadia Park, you have plenty to keep yourself responsibly occupied during your stay.

Production locale

Buy eco :

Many brands in the Basque Country are aware of environmental issues. Local brands, using short circuits, combat the harmful effects of consumption, and encourage us to consume better, and responsibly. From organic cosmetics to protect the ocean with Laboratoires de Biarritz, to recycled clothes with Hopaal, in the Basque Country you can consume locally, and responsibly !
