The region of Urdaibai is a unique natural jewel in the Basque Country. In the heart of Biscay, this is a natural area which is the most important wetland in the Basque Country. This area probably contains the most diverse landscapes and ecology in th whole autonomous Basque region.
From the cliffs and beaches of the coast, forests and inland rivers, through wetlands and river meadows, the enchanted Urdaibai is an estuary where the sailor and the rural environments meet. Not for nothing is one of the ultimate destinations of Biscay where culture and nature combine to offer a wide range of possibilities.
A paradise where human beings and nature live in a respectful and sustainable development.
A magical paradise worth visiting.
