2 week itenary Basque countries

Jump to last reply

Hi,

my husband and I will stay in the Basque countries for 2 weeks this summer and would love to have some suggestions for where to spend them.

We'll arrive in Bilbao by plane in the late afternoon around 6 pm and leave from Bilbao 2 weeks later.

We've been thinking about this itenary:
Day 1: Bilbao or drive directly to the Rioja area
Day 2-5: In the Rioja area
Day 5-6: In the Biarritz area
Day 6-13: San Sebastian (we've booked this)
Day 13-15: Bilbao

We are really unsure if it's the best to rent a car at the airport and just drive diretcly to Laguardia or the area around. How are the streets when it's dark?

Should we spend 3 nights in Rioja or 2 nights there and 2 nights in the Biarritz area or somewhere else?

I'd be even happier if you also suggest some places to stay. It can be both apartments and hotels/special places.

I guess I should add that we prefer the not too touristic places even though I understand that we'll come accross this since we'll go in july/august.

Hope to have your suggestions and comments soon!
