They offer you a trip up the Bilbao estuary on board a 12-metre sailing boat moored in the Abra-Getxo marina, with capacity for 8 passengers, and a tasting of different drinks and snacks. Heading out to sea, we will reach the Abra bay, with its mansions and stately homes.
At the mouth of the river, you can see the charismatic Bizkaia Suspension Bridge, a World Heritage Site. During the crossing we will taste a tasting of txakoli and crianza with food and wine pairing.
You will finish at the Maritime Museum near the Euskalduna Palace, the University of Deusto, the Guggenheim Museum and the new San Mamés football stadium. On the way down we will share a good cava with sweets.
Sailing trip on the Bilbao Estuary
Discover the sensation of sailing and enjoying traditional gastronomy in the same experience. To celebrate the moment we will uncork some delicious txakolí produced nearby and we will also offer you a wine from the Rioja Alavesa with which we will serve some delicate salted anchovies from Bermeo and some excellent piquillo peppers. We cannot miss the tuna and Idiazabal cheeses with walnuts from the area in the boat of a good Basque and some other surprises from our delicate local gastronomy.
After dessert, you will also have a coffee and if you feel like accompanying it with a liqueur of andrinas, the famous patxarán, we will have enjoyed a descent of the river that takes us back to the Getxo Marina, where you can continue to enjoy the town.
