Vitoria-Gasteiz & Rioja Alavesa Day Trip
Having been picked up from your hotel at 9:30 am on the day of your excursion, you'll leave Bilbao behind and set off on the road south to the city of Vitoria-Gasteiz. On your journey, you'll pass through the beautiful mountainous and forested landscapes of the Basque Country.
Arriving in Vitoria-Gasteiz, you'll embark on a panoramic tour of the new part of the city, before stopping and getting off the bus to explore the historic centre. For the cherry on the cake of your visit, you'll head to an artisanal sweet shop where you'll get to taste a typical local sweet - delicious!
Your tour will continue through the vineyard-covered countryside of Alava to Laguardia, the most famous town in the Rioja Alavesa region thanks to its enchanting historic architecture and its excellent wineries.
Discover the Medieval streets, grand houses and fascinating fortified churches of Laguardia, before having free time to eat lunch at one of the traditional restaurants in the picturesque town (lunch not included).
Before returning to Bilbao, you'll make one last stop in a famous winery. For the finishing touch on a wonderful day of sightseeing, you'll enjoy a tasting of local wine.
You'll be dropped back off in the centre of Bilbao for around 5:30 pm.
