Vitoria, Basque Country and La Rioja

Vitoria is the perfect blend of old Spanish history with young and modern development. It boasts one of Spain's highest standards of living thanks to its array of cultural activities, its beautiful surroundings, its excellent services and its environmental initiatives being European Green Capital 2012!

If one had to define the Basque Country, one could say that the whole world is present in this small country. One can discover a surprising biodiversity within a 100-kilometre radius. The North is dominated by the ocean and the mountains, covered in wonderful green, while the South has a more Mediterranean landscape, with its vineyards speckling the ever-ochre horizon with green: La Rioja Alta where some of the most prestigious Rioja wines are elaborated.

Sports in the lakes near Vitoria —sailing, canoeing, fishing ...— or other sports such climbing, paragliding, hiking or horseback riding...

Tasting Basque cuisine: Basque cuisine, based on products from both land and sea, is famous in the rest of the country and abroad. Here you can try both the most traditional as well as the most innovative cuisine, as well as one of the most famous wines in the world - the Rioja wine.

In the Basque Country, you do not necessarily need to sit down if you want to eat a good meal. The ritual of the “txikiteo”, that is, groups of friends who go from bar to bar drinking txikitos (small glasses of wine) or zuritos (small glasses of beer), has been extended to food: the tempting tapas called “pintxos” in the Basque Country, are real miniature pleasures in and of themselves. While some of these small portions are quite simple, others have reached such a level of sophistication that they are already being called a miniature cuisine. Many bars proudly exhibit their own unique creations and specialities. We are sure you will succumb to them.
