The best time to go to the Basque Country is June or September, to miss summer holiday crowds. Inland has a more continental climate than the coast, with warmer summers, cold winters and less chance of rain.
How many days do you need in Basque Country?
At a minimum, you must spend 5 days in Basque country. In fact, the region offers so much that many visitors even spend 10 days. If you are staying in Basque country for less than 10 nights, limit your itinerary to the most important parts of the region : San Sebastian.
Is Basque Country safe to travel?
Appreciate the calm. In the not so distant past, the Basque region was a dangerous place due to an armed separatist movement in the region. It wasnt a total war zone, but there were certainly unsafe areas, especially if you were a prominent figure in business or politics.
Is San Sebastian expensive?
San Sebastian is an expensive city, but by avoiding the Michelin-star restaurants weve managed to eat in fabulous style and meet our budget - give or take a few marinated anchovies. Avoid the Michelin-starred restaurants and you can still eat well on a budget.
