FOOD TASTING ON A SAILING VESSEL
We offer you two experiences to enjoy sailing and gastronomy
1 Gastronomic and industrial tourism
Discover the history of Bilbao from a sailing boat and enjoy a special tasting with food and wine pairing on board. If you like sightseeing, sailing and good wines, we 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 aperitifs. Heading out to sea, we will arrive at the Abra Bay, with its mansions and stately homes.
At the mouth of the bay, we will be able to contemplate the charismatic Bizkaia Suspension Bridge, a World Heritage Site. During the crossing, we will enjoy a tasting of txakoli and crianza with wine pairing.
We 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.
2 Tasting on a sailing boat along the Bilbao estuary
Discover the sensation of sailing and enjoying traditional gastronomy all in the same experience.
To celebrate the moment we will uncork a bottle of delicious, locally produced Txakoli wine and we will also offer you a wine from the Rioja Alavesa region to accompany some delicious salted anchovies from Bermeo with excellent piquillo peppers; and the boat of any self-respecting Basque person cannot be without tuna and Idiazabal cheeses with locally grown walnuts, as well as a few other surprises from our delicate regional gastronomy.
After dessert, we will also have a coffee, and if to your taste, accompanied by a liqueur made from sloes, the acclaimed patxarán, we will have enjoyed a trip down the river which takes us back to Getxo Marina, where we can continue enjoying the town.
