    • From the summit to the sand

      Enjoy an exhilarating ride to the natural sights of San Sebastián on the San Sebastián E-MTB Tour! In 3.5 hours, this guided mountain bike tour takes you to the highs and lows of the area, from Igueldo Mountain to La Concha Bay via the Camino de Santiago path and Kukuarri Cross. With the added flexibility of bike rental, this day tour is a dynamic journey of discovery through San Sebastián’s most spectacular scenery.

      Your bicycle tour begins with a bike up Igueldo Mountain, one of San Sebastián’s three major hills partially covered in glorious green vegetation, providing a stunning color clash with the Cantabrian Sea. As well as unbeatable views of San Sebastián from the summit, you’ll also find something quite curious at the mountain’s peak - a vintage amusement park! Gaze out over Monte Urgull, the beautiful bay, and the mesmerizing Miramar Palace before biking on to La Concha Bay via the Camino de Santiago path.

      As you cycle the Camino de Santiago, your guide will fill you in on the history of this famous path of pilgrimage. Known in English as ‘The Way of St. James’, the Camino de Santiago is a series of paths winding their way to the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, wherein lies the shrine of the apostle Saint James the Great. As such, the path you’ll pedal holds important symbolism, as well as boasting phenomenal, verdant views.

      Biking on to La Concha Bay, you’ll be awe-struck by a site of inestimable natural beauty. The bay itself is one of the most famous and photographed in Europe, an incandescent crescent of glistening sand stretching from City Hall to the Pico del Loro (Parrot’s Beak). Park your electric mountain bike up on one of the best city beaches in Europe before pedaling along the picturesque promenade. From here, your day continues on towards its final stop - the Kukuarri Cross.

      Tour difficulty can be adjusted to your physical condition.

        Must be an expert

        · San Sebastian E-MTB Tour

        1. The guide really didn't provide much information about San sebastian which I thought we would get some history about the area or basque culture
        2. The guide brought a friend and neither of them wanted to accommodate my entry experience. I had researched the biking area and knew there were paved roads to go up if I thought the off reading was too much but they continued to push what they wanted to do, not what I was comfortable with
        3. The guide did no introduction to our bikes. There was zero instruction given on how to use the electric nor a review on any part of the bike
        4. Only take this tour if you are a very experienced mountain biker and only want to mountain bike.
