Bilbao in detail

Bilbao is a large, coastal region in Northern Spain offering its visitors all the charm, history and sunshine they would expect from such a beautiful country! With mountains to one side and the Bay of Biscay to the other, there is plenty to see and do.

Surfing and Climbing are naturally some of Bilbao’s most popular activities; the city also boasts a cycle track almost 30km long (and growing all the time!), from which you can take part in a leisurely cycle whilst taking in all the sights around you. When it comes to gastronomy, Bilbao residents take their eating habits very seriously and love to show visitors exactly how well they prepare their food.

A particular speciality is cod due to the region’s coastal location, but don’t expect greasy fish and chips on the menu! Prepare to be amazed by new flavours, smells and textures.
