Escape from the bustle of the city and enjoy spectacular views from the Northern Way of the Camino de Santiago: hike up to Mount Ulia from San Sebastian.
Mount Ulia Hike from San Sebastian
After meeting your guide at the famous Mercado de La Bretxa, a centrally-located market near the Beach of La Concha, you'll begin your hike from San Sebastian.
Your walk will take you along the Northern Way, one of the routes of the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage that crosses the north of Spain and ends in Santiago de Compostela. During your hike up to Mount Ulia, a hill overlooking San Sebastian, you'll find one of the area's liveliest beaches: Playa de la Zurriola. Nestled at the foot of Mount Ulia, Zurriola is also one of the best surfing beaches in the region.
You'll then reach the hilltop Gros district of San Sebastian, famous for its picturesque streets and squares. Gros is home to many different restaurants and bars serving pintxos: one of the most iconic dishes in Basque cuisine.
The four mile (6.5 km) hike will allow you to discover the beautiful coastline of this area of Spain, which is characterised by its spectacular sweeping beaches and dramatic cliffs. You'll follow the trail through the verdant forest before reaching the peak of Mount Ulia.
Having spent an unforgettable few hours enjoying the nature of the Northern Way, you'll return to San Sebastian city centre by public bus.
