The Basque Country is a stunning place, full of tiny farms against swells of jade-color hills. It is quite possible that a visitor could spot sheep and lambs frolicking in the region’s grassy fields at least once on their trip; it’s just that kind of place.
If in the mood for exploring around Bilbao, hop on the local Eusko Tren which passes through most points of interest in the region. Beaches are less than an hour away from Bilbao, as is Gernika and Vitoria-Gasteiz. The Eusko Tren ride itself is an experience. Outfitted with wide windows, passengers going to most any destination will get to take a peek at forests and leafy Basque landscapes as they ride along. Forget the tourist bus, this is much better!
