Awesome! One of the best mountain bike experiences I’ve ever had, and I’ve had many! I couldn’t recommend basquemtb highly enough Jim
I can’t really imagine how this holiday could have been better! excellent guides and the trails were world beating! Paul
We were hoping for two basic things in an backcountry ride outfitter: Take us on amazing trails and handling all the local logistics. Basque MTB scored 20/20 Carlos

Here are some of the questions we are regularly asked about our mountain bike holidays. If you have any questions we are delighted to answer them, just get in touch.
How many km´s / how much climbing / how much descending?
We don’t have set itineraries for any of our mountain bike day trips. We typically meet around 9:15 and finish around 17:30 and people are tired but not dead by the end of the trip. We manage the day so that is the case and we talk to you when you book, before we leave and regularly through the day to ensure that we give you a full day of riding without doing too much.
I´m by myself / in a small group, what can you offer?
We work very hard to get the groups balanced right. We will talk about your biking prior to you booking, or fill out a booking form, and if we can fit you in with an existing group we will offer that as an option. Alternatively we can offer private guiding as well.
How far in advance do I need to book?
There is no answer to this. If we have space today I can´t guarantee we will have it tomorrow. Our trips usually sell out so at sometime between now and the date of the trip we won’t have availability any more.
What is the weather like in that part of Spain?
The weather on the Basque coast is generally amazing, however the price for having mountains right on the coast is that we get some rain. Generally if the rain comes from the north it all falls on the coast and we can drive a short distance south into Spain and enjoy sunny and dry conditions. If the rain comes from the south then usually the Basque coast remains dry while the rest of Spain gets wet. It is very uncommon for the weather to be bad in all the areas we can choose to ride in, however if that does happen then we take some comfort in the fact that it generally means most of Spain, France and northern Italy are affected!Temperatures remain moderate through the whole season, averaging around 25°C in the hottest months of July and August. Occasionally we will get higher temperatures of around 30°C-35°C for a day or two in August but it never lasts and we can ride high up or next to the coast to escape the heat. In August the Basque Country is full of holiday makers from France and Spain due to it’s great climate.Over winter the Basque Coast enjoys long spells of great weather broken up with spells of wet weather. If you are thinking about coming over winter then please get in touch. If you are already in the area it is definitely worth penciling in a day of biking but we don´t recommend travelling here during winter just for mountain biking. Our Winter Enduro mountain bike holiday would be better, or another part of the world. .
