Anka Martin is a world class enduro racer who has raced the world cup DH circuit and has represented South Africa at the DH world championships. Anka has won the Transprovence multi stage enduro race and competed on the EWS circuit for several years. That tells you a bit about how Anka rides but Anka is also an adventurer, traveling the world with her bike and offering fantastic mountain bike trips in New Zealand with her husband and photographer Sven Martin.
This is the second year of Anka´s Soul Trips and they are proving to be really popular. Each year Anka offers a series of these mountain biking and yoga holidays around the world in partnership with 3 selected mountain bike holiday companies. We are really honoured that she has chosen basqueMTB to be one of those companies again this year.
This is a womens only mountain bike holiday, guided by Anka and Doug and supported by our vans. We will ride 6 days during the week with Anka providing plenty of advice to help to fine tune your riding. Every day Anka will offer yoga classes in the garden of our accommodation with big views out over the Basque Coast. The yoga will help you recover and also help improve your biking.
This trip will run from the 25th June to the 1st of July 2017.
All our weeks are tailored to the guests and during the booking process we will discuss your requirements and make sure you are put in with a suitable group. Each week we aim to run two groups with a guide, driver, van and trailer each to allow people to choose the group which best suits their level.
Soul Trips | Ladies Biking and Yoga: Riding Areas
Bilbao Airport is the best. Biarritz is also good. If you are flying from outside Europe you might arrive to Madrid or Barcelona and be able to fly on to Hondarribia Airport for the shortest transfer.
If you are coming by car then the ferry to Bilbao or Santander is a good option.
From Paris you can take the TGV direct to Hendaye.
For our Basque Coast mountain bike holidays you can arrive any time before 7pm. If you are arriving after that then we will book the airport hotel for you and get you the next day.
We pick up on Saturdays, and other days by arrangement, from San Sebastian, Hendaye or Biarritz Airport. There is a very easy airport transfer bus from Bilbao Airport which leaves from immediately outside arrivals and takes you directly to San Sebastian where we will pick you up. We will provide full instructions for the transfer bus and don’t worry, it really is very easy!
All of our holidays use high class accommodation and the standard of our accommodation is something that people usually comment on. The accommodation is in the beautiful fishing village of Hondarribia with big views out across the bay.

Our “luxury” accommodation is based in a modern house in Hondarribia. It has its own small swimming pool in a large garden, stunning rooms and breathtaking views along the French coast. You can walk into the center of Hondarribia in around 10 minutes to visit the lively local bars. If you don’t fancy eating out then there is also a guest kitchen where you can cook your own dinner. There is an area to store and work on bikes along with tools. This is a very high quality accommodation package and is the main place we use.
Facilities which are Common to All Our Holiday Accommodation

|Clothes Washing Facilities |
Secure Bike Storage
Visiting Spain Alone?All of our prices are calculated on the basis of two people sharing a room. We don’t charge a single person supplement, however we will aim to put two single people, of the same gender, into the same room. If you really don’t want this then we need to charge a single person supplement, please get in touch to ask about this. If you are traveling as an odd numbered group we will try to offer you the option of 3 to a room rather than sharing with a stranger, if we do that we will make sure there is a room large enough to make this comfortable! Depending on availability we can also offer an individual room, however due to the quality of the accommodation we use this isn’t a cheap option, full details are on the booking page.

Extra Holiday Information
We will visit a spa in San Sebastian one evening. This is included in the price.
During the week we will have a tour of a local vineyard where we can see how the wine is made and taste it afterwards! Again this is included.
Eating out in Hondarribia During Your Holiday
Basque MTB is located just outside San Sebastian, in Spain, a perfect location to offer great holidays for those who, for some strange reason, don’t want to throw themselves down mountains all day! While your loved ones risk life and limb mountain biking, you can choose lots of alternative holiday activities, from relaxing on the beach, shopping and being pampered with spa treatments to alternative thrills such as surfing. If you would like to, you can surf in Spain in the morning, have a guided tour of a local vineyard in the afternoon, and then dine in France in the evening.
