Discover Biscay in motorhome
Visiting Biscay in a motorhome is great way to explore all of its beauty in complete freedom. Your time will be your own
To travel in a motorhome or in a van is to be completely free, to be able to visit different places stopping whenever you feel like it and to feel closer to nature and local people.
Short distances, breathtaking scenery and fantastic views make Biscay a great place to visit with a motorhome – you can decide if you want to fall asleep in a busy city or with a spectacular ocean view at your feet.
The best place to stop to discover the city of Bilbao is the Kobetamendi area with magnificent views of the city. It is reasonably close to the city center, this camping area is only about a 10-minute car-ride away and it is also connected to the city center by public transportation.
This is the place where one of the biggest festivals in the country, Bilbao BBK Live, takes place.
Live, feel & enjoy
The latest trends brought to you
Outside Bilbao there are other amazing places with a lot to offer where you can park your motorhome and enjoy yourself. Take advantage of the freedom your motorhome offers and go hopping from one town to the other to discover fascinating Basque traditions in an affordable fashion.
A visit to Getxo, a town situated some 20 km from Bilbao and famous for its beaches and cliffs, is a must. You should also visit Algorta and its Puerto Viejo (Old Port), a place frequented by the locals to enjoy the typical pintxos (small finger food served in bars and taverns around the Basque Country) with an ocean view. If you love surfing, you have to visit La Salvaje (The Wild) beach in Sopela.
Another interesting place where you can park your motorhome is not far, in the bay of Gorliz and Plentzia where a beautiful natural bay set at the river mouth, lovely beaches and safe waters make it a favorite spot for people from all around Biscay. The beaches are located in the center of the town, have pretty promenades and there are plenty of recreational and green areas with tables, barbecues, benches and children’s playgrounds.
In Bilbao Bizkaia, it is possible to sleep near the most magical hermitage of the Bay of Biscay, near San Juan de Gaztelugatxe. In the coastal town of Bakio, you can park just a few metres from the longest beach in Bizkaia, enjoy its waves, its atmosphere and the spectacular sunset. Besides, you must visit the Txakolingunea, the Txakoli Museum, and discover the process and evolution of one of our best ambassadors.
In the Txorierri valley, just 20 minutes by metro from Bilbao, Zamudio combines the innovation of the Bizkaia Technology Park with a natural environment in which the traditions of the rural world are alive and a heritage in which the church of San Martín, the Torre Zamudio and the town hall stand out. As a result of the traditions of the agricultural environment, we produce cider and txakoli, which you can taste in many grills, wineries and restaurants. It is also a quiet area for hiking and cycling along tracks or routes that cover the whole of the Uribe region, and following the coastal Camino de Santiago.
If you wish to do some surfing and to get to know some traditional fishing towns, you should head to Bermeo and Mundaka. Mundaka is considered to have the best left-hand barrel wave in Europe and Bermeo is a perfect place to get to know the naval traditions of the Basque fishing villages.
Another place you should not miss while traveling with your motorhome is the fishing town of Lekeitio, in the Lea-Artibai region. The beginning of September is the best time to visit, as you can enjoy San Antolines festivities. It is the well-known local festivity that includes the famed Day of the Geese (Antzar Eguna). How can you miss that?
Last but not least, Lanestosa and Elorrio also deserve a visit. The two towns have a great cultural heritage and are surrounded by lush green mountains offering breathtaking views. It is a great place for hiking and other mountain sports.
Take a drive with your motorhome from town to town to discover all the corners of Biscay at your own pace.
