A memorable tour of Bilbao’s maritime icons
The people of Bilbao have spent centuries taming a wonderful wilderness into the vibrant landscape it is today. This beautiful guided bike tour takes you on an adventure through Bilbao’s past as you ride along the River Nervion towards the seafront. This is a city whose culture and history has been shaped by a relationship with the sea, and you’ll discover how with an exploration of the Hanging Bridge, Bizkaia Bridge, Portugalete, Getxo, the ‘Golden Mile’, and the Old Port of Algorta. With the added benefit of bike rental, this is a family friendly cycling experience exploring Bilbao’s seafaring past.
At Brizkaia Bridge, known informally as the Hanging Bridge, behold an architectural jewel in Bilboa’s crown reflective of its maritime culture. The oldest shuttle bridge in the world, Bizkaia Bridge was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2006, praised as an ‘exceptional expression of creativity’ with its grand structure and gondola system. Via the bridge, your bicycle tour pedals into the town of Portugalete and the municipality of Getxo. Within the Northern Quarter, you’ll pass beautiful historic palaces en route to the ‘Golden Mile’ of Bizkaia, an avenue of stately buildings for the wealthiest families in Bilbao, built at the beginning of the 20th Century.
Your brilliant bicycle tour winds up in the picturesque Old Port of Algorta, for a true discovery of the city’s maritime heritage. This small, exquisite fishing village is home to quaint fishermens’ cottages and a collection of quirky bars serving up pintxos, a traditional Spanish snack. A tour of Bilbao to savor!
