Hiking in the Highlands: Aizkorri Natural Park
We will enjoy a light trekking in this amazing setting in the Goierri, the basque term for “The Highlands”, in one of the three natural parks in the Basque Country, following a famous trail that was used by the royals to cross the borders in the past centuries. We will reach the tunnel of Saint Adrian where there used to be an ancient toll to pay for the goods you brought. Once there we will have to turn around and came back they way we came, back to the car, and off we go to meet the most famous cheesemaker around. This 17th-century old farm house and the same family in it, are living of their tradition – Cheese.
Without having to go anywhere, buyers from all over come here to buy this cheese as it is only sold here. Come see how they make it and you will understand why!
A short drive through these scenic landscapes, we will find a farmhouse run by graduates of the famous Basque Culinary Center, where we’ll have lunch.
