VISIT GastrOH! The Basque Country, La Rioja, Navarre, Pays Basque and Béarn promote gastronomy together


The GATURI project aims to improve the competitiveness of SMEs in the tourism and agri-food sectors in the cross-border area through the construction of a "Single Destination" between Navarre, Euskadi, La Rioja, Pays Basque and Béarn by designing joint marketing and internationalisation strategies.


VISIT GastrOH aims to be the gateway to a first class international and sustainable gastronomic tourism destination. Hundreds of ways to visit our land in a truly authentic and unique experience for visitors who are eager to discover and enjoy gastronomy.

Thus, the common international gastronomic territory made up of the Basque Country, Béarn, La Rioja, Navarre and Pays Basque becomes one with the creation of a Unique International Gastronomic Tourism Destination, known as VISITGastrOH!

This new international destination aims to help companies by creating a joint model for their internationalisation and tools to increase the promotion and international gastronomic and tourist positioning of the cross-border territory and help them to reach other international tourist markets more easily.

The main international tool is the platform, a showcase for the gastronomic, agri-food and tourism products and resources of the five territories. This platform will host the different gastronomic tourism routes and a wide range of experiences, allowing travellers to select the proposals that best suit their interests and needs and, at the same time, a broad showcase for the sale of agri-food products from the common territory, aimed at both the end customer and the HORECA channel.

Cross-border routes

The thematic tourist routes or itineraries are the integration of resources and services of the five territories that make up the VISIT GastrOH! destination around a specific gastronomic product (wine, cheese, ...), encompassing a wide and structured offer of services from the primary, secondary and tertiary sectors, to constitute a value proposition and enhance the networking of all agents and encourage the joint promotion of the territory at an international level. These products, in addition to guaranteeing extraordinary quality and being closely linked to the territory in which they are produced, are one of the transversal elements that are present in the VISIT GastrOH!


Wine Destination: Tourists can discover the landscapes of vineyards and villages and towns that live by and for wine. Immerse yourself in the culture of wine through a unique journey through different wine-producing areas: family-run, century-old, chateau-style, cooperative and architecturally striking wineries open their doors wide.

Cheese Destination: The cheeses of the VISIT GastrOH! destination have always maintained their characteristic flavour and aroma, and are produced in a natural and artisanal way. Through the artisan cheese dairies, farms and refineries, tourists can discover the landscapes, villages and valleys that give their name to some of the most famous cheeses in the world.

Destination Designation of Origin: In the VISIT GastrOH! Destination, international tourists will find products protected by more than 40 Protected Designations of Origin and other differentiated quality seals such as PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) or TSG (Traditional Speciality Guaranteed). Each of these seals recognised by the European Union guarantees quality foodstuffs with unique characteristics attributable to their origin, where artisanal and differentiated production methods are followed.
