WHALER´S HERITAGE COASTAL HIKING:
San Sebastian to Pasajes

Spectacular views of Donostia
The walk starts in the center of the city, we will walk along the Zurriola beach promenade until we start to climb a demanding slope, but do not worry because it is very short and it will be worth it because we will reach the first viewpoint, which has spectacular views of Donostia.
St James Way
This route is well known for being part of the Camino de Santiago (St James way) but it was also very important for us because we climbed this way to reach the whaling watch-hill from where we watched our sea waiting for the passage of migrating whales to be fished by rowing and harpoon.
Lighthouse of La Plata (The silver)
We will continue the route along the coast towards the lighthouse of La Plata (The silver) enjoying this wonderful natural park with a great variety of flora and fauna.
Albaola Sea Factory
Before reaching the port of Pasajes San Pedro we will visit ALBAOLA, the Sea Factory of the Basques, where we will observe the actual construction of the replica Nao San Juan of the XVI century (with the techniques of that time), a whaler that sank off the coast of Canada, in Red Bay in 1565. Apart from the replica, it also has smaller boats and a beautiful museum with many ancient pieces and stories.
.
Seeing such a construction is very impressive and closing our eyes we can imagine how they sailed those seas and how life was inside those small ships for such a long voyage. Incredible!
Pasajes San Pedro
Once we reach the port of Pasajes San Pedro we will get on a boat to move to the other shore where Pasajes San Juan is located, a panorama where the old wealthy and family houses of notable entities stand out, all of them prior to 1800.

The historic center of San Juan is one of the most acclaimed landscapes for photographs, special for its architecture and the colors of their houses, which makes any visitor amazed, as the French writer Victor Hugo in 1843 spent a few days inspired by the tranquility of the bay pasaitarra.
Toasting with a glass of cider and eating one typical pintxo
We finish the walk in Santiago square making a toast with a glass of cider and eating one typical pintxo.

Later you will be free to decide where to eat depending on your preferences or coming back to the city by bus with your guide. They will show you all types of restaurants, the best ones and great budgets too.

If you stay there, we will tell you how to come back to San Sebastian easily by bus or taxi in less than an hour.
