This is the first guide to bring together walks and drives in the Basque Country, which runs east from Bilbã:o in Spain to Biarritz in France. The book explores the coast and inland - throughout the seven provinces making up the area, including the lush green flanks of the Pyrenees with their picture-postcard villages and famous places like Pamplona and the Pilgrims' Route to Santiago de Compostela.

The entire Basque coast is mostly very rugged, with many thriving fishing towns and villages, plus the added attraction of splendid beaches. Inland the countryside is more mountainous, with lush green countryside. Don't miss the award-winning Guggenheim Museum in Bilbã:o, the Pilgrims' Route to Santiago, the San Fermines fiestas at Iruñ:a-Pamplona, or stunning coastal resorts like Donostia-San Sebastiá:n and Biarritz. But most of all, explore the remote picture-postcard villages and lush mountainous countryside straddling both sides of the Pyrenees - preferably on foot.

The guide includes a fold-out touring map and large-scale (1:50,000) topographical walking maps as well as local transport timetables.

8 car tours, 32 main walks, 19 shorter walks for motorists. Free online update service with specific route change information on the publisher's website, maintained daily.

The 'Landscapes' series, with 50 destinations, has been dubbed 'the blue Bibles' by the Sunday Times and led to Sunflower being one of only four publishers (from a field of 18) chosen as a Which? Recommended Provider of Guidebooks.

Another great book in the blue bible series. Info is great and useful. --(Big red bus, Amazon)

Excellent... Using this guide book really enhanced my walking holiday in the Basque Country, a region which has to be one of Europe's best kept secrets. The practical details given are first class and the book is an essential companion for anyone planning to visit the area. --(Mr M, Amazon)

For the traveller with limited time but who wants to get to know the Basque Country beyond its cities, it's hard to know what more you could reasonably ask for. I've lived in the area for decades and have used this guide to get to know some unfamiliar corners better... Excellent. --(MW, Amazon)
