Bilbao

The perfect destination for your next incentive, meeting or group travel

Bilbao is without any doubt the cosmopolitan capital of the Basque Country in the north of Spain. The vibrant city, formerly industrial, but reborn as a center of art, architecture and lifestyle, is offering a wide cultural scope of museums, art galleries and spectacular buildings by famous designers.

The city of Bilbao is the main factor of the modernization of this region. The great architectural and infrastructure projects have been the driving force of the urban and economic regeneration. The Guggenheim Museum was the kickoff but many other projects followed to convert Bilbos is a modern, young and dynamic city.

Gastronomy is art in Bilbao. The city is home to prestigious restaurants which offer dishes ranging from traditional cuisine to the most avant-garde culinary creations. Eating well here is easy, almost an obligation. Top-quality ingredients are guaranteed as the local products are fist class. The nearby Rioja region guarantees the perfect drop for each meal.

jai alai speed action bilbao

JAI ALAI ACTION

Jai-alai is a typical Basque ball game characterized by its fast playing pace, in which the ball (or pelota) can travel faster than 180 mph (world record!).

Our professional players will show their skills during a show match and afterwards, all guests are invited to try themselves in this unique sport. The winner will receive a typical Basque Txapela (hat for the winner) as a memory of the victory.

underwater wine bilbao

UNDERWATER WINE

Very close to Bilbao, we offer you the unique opportunity to taste wines which have been aged in an undersea oenological laboratory located in the bay of Bizkay. This may sound like treasures and sunken ships from a pirates movie, but actually this is the worlds first underwater bodega.

The wines show very special characteristics thanks to the ideal temperature conditions under water and the higher pressure due to the water.

COASTEERING

During this activity, you can enjoy the beauty of the Basque coast while being active and getting some adrenaline boosts. Coasteering is an activity that can combine one or various activities like hiking, jumps into the water, small divings parts, swimming along a part of the Basque Coast.

TXAKOLI WINE

Txakoli is more than a wine with its own personality. It is fruit of a centuries‘ old tradition cultivated over the entire Basque Country. There are hundreds of wineries, located in the mountains and on the coast, environments that offer spectacular views.

Txakoli is a white, pale-yellow wine, slightly acidic with fruity tones and full-bodied in the mouth, given by the special climate of the Bay of Bizkay. Every visit concludes with a tasting of the Txakoli produced in the winery and some local specialties.

GUGGENHEIM MUSEUM BILBAO

Being in Bilbao and not visiting the Guggenheim Museum can almost be considered as a blasphemy of art. Designed by American architect Frank Gehry, the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao building represents a magnificent example of the most groundbreaking 20th- century architecture, providing a seductive backdrop for the art exhibited in it.

The museum has been the starting point for the transformation of Bilbao and the entire area, which is still going on, more than 22 years after the opening of this temple of art.
