This private luxury tour goes in-depth in the Basque Country, one of Spain’s most beautiful and fascinating regions, known for its unique culture, cutting-edge architecture, and spectacular food.

Begin in Bilbao, one of the most architecturally progressive towns in Spain. See Bilbao’s most interesting architectural and cultural sites, then visit the Guggenheim Museum, a stunning building of swooping titanium curves designed by Frank Gehry. After a private tour of the museum’s art collection, perhaps enjoy dining in its Michelin-starred restaurant.

Next, transfer to the southern Basque Country and Rioja, one of the world’s most renowned winemaking regions. Spend two nights in the heart of the Rioja wine region at Hotel Marques de Riscal, a luxury hotel with distinctive architecture designed by Frank Gehry and a wine therapy spa offering treatments using vine and grape seed extracts. On a private day excursion, visit Laguardia, a beautiful medieval walled village with wine caves under its cobblestone streets and impressive views of the nearby hills. Tour surrounding vineyards and enjoy wine tastings at bodegas (wineries) designed by celebrated modern architects such as Santiago Calatrava and Zaha Hadid.

Continue to San Sebastian, an elegant seaside resort near the border of France that is the gastronomic capital of the Basque Country. Tour the picturesque old town, and browse local produce and fish markets. Basque cuisine is generally considered to be Spain’s finest and on this tour you will have ample opportunity to sample the local specialties. Take a class at a private cooking club, and enjoy a private tasting of the region’s delicious pintxos—the Basque version of tapas—and Txakoli, a local, slightly sparkling white wine. If desired, visit the nearby fishing village of Getaria to wander its charming backstreets, tour the Balenciaga Museum and explore the surrounding Txakoli vineyards.

One day, enjoy a private excursion to the Pays Basque in France. Perhaps tour the town of Bayonne to see half-timbered houses, peruse local markets, see the cathedral and city walls, learn about local culture at the Basque Museum, and sample the town’s famous chocolate and smoked ham. Also stroll seaside resort towns like elegant Biarritz or traditional St.-Jean-de-Luz, with its charming local shops selling linens, espadrilles and gourmet products.
