Pack some food and drinks for the afternoon hike. There is no supermarket, cafe or lunch spot nearby.
While you can use your stroller for the morning hike in Bilbao, you have to switch to a baby carrier to access the island of San Juan de Gaztelugatxe for the coastline views. The island is connected to the mainland by a man-made stone bridge and has 241 steps to reach the top.
You can do a city stroll any day of the week, but on Mondays the Guggenheim Museum is closed.
Start your Basque family itinerary with a relaxed stroll around the city of Bilbao. Pass the famous Guggenheim Museum and be amazed by the gigantic spider sculpture or the flower puppy outside the museum. Continue to the old city, stroll around the small winding streets, taste some typical Basque “pinchos” (tapas) and take a well-earned siesta at the Plaza Nueva. After resting, you feel energized enough to continue you day trip with a drive a bit outside the city to the Bay of Biscay. There you’ll climb 241 steps to the magical rock island of San Juan de Gaztelugatxe. Enjoy the crashing waves, wind, stunning views, and a wild, beautiful landscape; once you reach the top of the island, this place will take your breath away!
