IS THERE A SAFETY PROBLEM IN NORTHERN SPAIN?

I'm trying to convince my group to go walking/hiking in northern Spain, but there are questions about the safety in the area. Should this be more of a concern here than one would normally encounter in other areas while traveling?

Do you mean the Basque lands? If so, I was wondering the same.

There are several well-established hiking/walking tour cos. that run tours there.

Yes, I mean the Basque area, but not exactly sure what the perimeters of that are. Can someone define the area a bit more for me?

I think there's no danger, but you can check. The consuls of five countries hear of any dangers, so give good advice.
You can read their considered views on
from Australia on http://www.dfat.gov.au/consular/advice
from Britain on http://193.114.50.10/travel
from Canada on http://www.dfait-maeci.gc.ca/menu-e.asp, under "Travel Reports"
from France on http://www.dfae.diplomatie.fr/voyage...s/alphabet.asp
from the USA on http://travel.state.gov, under "travel warnings"
Some experienced American travellers find the American site over-cautious. It is therefor useful to check all five sites.
