See the best San Sebastián by bike on a 2.5-hour tour, led by a local guide. Ride the city’s bike trails to discover beaches, modern art, riverside palaces, and more. Feel the breeze of the wild Atlantic Ocean, and admire the surfers on Zurriola Beach.
What to Expect
Explore San Sebastián (also known as Donostia) by bike, with a local English-speaking guide. Start at one of the city’s most iconic buildings; the Ayuntamiento (Town Hall). Mingle with the locals, check out the antique carousel, and learn quirky facts, such as why there are so many small trees in the area, and how San Sebastián is connected to Japan.
Follow the bidegorri (bike path) along La Concha Beach en route to the palace of Queen Maria Cristina. Arrive at Ondarreta, one of the most local beaches in the city. Continue to the end of the bay to see where nature meets civilisation. Discover some Basque modern art, before veering through one of the city’s oldest neighbourhoods and towards a “secret passage” that connects 2 parts of the city.
Ride through districts that show the many faces of San Sebastián, from the workers’ city to the aristocratic belle époque of the past. Follow the Urumea River back to the city center, passing villas and bourgeois palaces along the way. See one of the most important buildings of San Sebastian at the Kursaal, and learn its dark history.
Next, feel the wind on your face as it comes in off the Atlantic Ocean. Admire the surfers braving the waves on Zurriola Beach in the beautiful Gros district. Head toward the port to explore how the past and present meet. This is also the entrance to a food heaven of pintxo bars!
Cycle back across the Monte Urgull battlefield, and along the old city walls. End your San Sebastián bike adventure down the contemporary boulevard that separates the Old Town from the new part of the city.
