TOUR 6. Salt And Wind Sculptures. Wahlers Stories
In this tour, we would like to offer you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the secrets of the Jaizkibel mountain and in the history of our ancestors, the whalers who lived on this coast in the XVI century.
We will leave San Sebastian and drive towards Jaizkibel mountain. Be ready to discover, the secrets and charms that are hidden in this mountain, the highest of the Cantabrian coast. You will be driven to the summit, where you can enjoy impressive views of the valley and the endless ocean.
