  • Duration: 7h
  • Difficulty: Medium

Breakfast and start of the stage of our Wey of Santiago from Irún.

Stage that runs between the coast and the mountain. Once we arrive at the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Guadalupe, we will go through the foothills of Mount Jaizkibel, through tracks and wooded areas. We will arrive at Pasajes de San Juan, where we will cross the estuary to Pasajes de San Pedro, by boat.

The entrance to San Sebastián will give us beautiful views of the bay of San Sebastián. For lovers of good food, as we pass through the city of San Sebastian within a radius of 25 kilometers, there are 18 Michelin stars concentrated. You can also enjoy their excellent cuisine with their famous pintxos.

Arrival in San Sebastián. End of the stage.

  • Duration: 5h 30m
  • Difficulty: Low

Breakfast and start of the stage.

The exit from the city will offer us magnificent views from Mount Igeldo, which we will access as soon as we start the stage.

Stage similar to the previous one, with wooded areas and dirt tracks, for most of the route.

Orio, a coastal town par excellence, is the town before our arrival in Zarauz.

Arrival in Zarauz. End of the stage.

  • Duration: 5h
  • Difficulty: Low

Breakfast and start of the stage.

Stage that runs very close to the sea, halfway up the mountain, with constant ups and downs.

Magnificent views and important coastal towns, such as Guetaria and Zumaia, we will find until we reach Deba.

Arrival in Deba. End of the stage.

  • Duration: 5h 30m
  • Difficulty: Medium

Breakfast and start of the stage.

Stage with absence of population centers and with many typical farmhouses and large wooded areas, will accompany us throughout the route.

We highlight the Calvary of Maia and the area of the Kostolamendi Farmhouse, as the highest point of the stage.

Arrival in Markina. End of the stage.

  • Duration: 6h 15m
  • Difficulty: Medium

Breakfast and start of the stage.

Numerous rural centers, some with history, such as Bolibar, mark this stage, which runs through terrain similar to the previous stage, with some medieval roads, such as the one that gives access to the Collegiate Church of Ziortza, and with the final surprise, before arriving in Guernika, of having entered the Urdaibai Biosphere Reserve.

Arrival in Guernika. End of the stage.

  • Duration: 8h
  • Difficulty: Medium

Breakfast and start of the stage.

Stage with two faces, like all those that end in large population centers. Half of it offers the bucolic and rural environment of our entire journey since we started our Wey in Irún, and the rest we find the industrial development typical of large cities.

Arrival in Bilbao. End of the stage and of the Wey of Santiago from Irún. If you have more days, you can extend your Wey of Santiago from Bilbao.

RECOMMENDATION

For those with little physical preparation or who prefer to undertake the stage in a more calm and relaxed manner, it would be advisable to divide the stage into two days:

Stage from Guernika to Lezama (20.7 km)

Stage from Lezama to Bilbao (10.8 km)

We’re coming to the last day of your trip! Enjoy breakfast and conclude this unforgettable experience with us.
