When in Basque Country, it helps to know...

  • United States and Canadian citizens do not require a visa to enter Spain for tourism or business stays under ninety (90) days.

 

  • As with any Sojourn trip, every single element of this trip was developed by the Sojourn crew and is not outsourced. The Sojourn commitment of impeccable service, world-renowned luxury hotels, carefully designed routes, custom fitted bikes, professional leader support and unwavering attention to details, stays firm.

 

  • The trip starts and ends in Bilbao, Spain. You can connect to Bilbao (BIO) from any major airport in Europe including Madrid, Barcelona or Paris.

 

  • A lot of the gourmet restaurants where we dine offer specially prepared limited or fixed menus featuring regional cuisine. So selecting off the main menu might not be an option.

 

  • As with any European destination, the pace in Basque country is slow. The Basques are especially a very relaxed community. We request guests to be respectful of the local pace and use that time to relax and savor the local ambiance.

 

  • Most of the locals do speak English. Besides, you will always be supported by two Sojourn leaders who speak English, French, Spanish and Euskara (Basque) with equal fluency.
