Experience the flysch, feel the karst


60 Million years of Earth's history at your fingertips

A sustainable Geopark

Ecotourist Commitment

A small territory, a complex and unique orography, and landscapes and environmental values safeguarded in its protected natural areas. The Basque Coast Geopark has been part of the European and Global Geoparks Network since 2010, and was officially declared a UNESCO Global Geopark in November 2015.
In addition to this global seal and label, which undoubtedly guarantees management, planning and a commitment to conservation, culture and local development, the territory encompasses several protected natural areas such as the Protected Landscape of the Deba-Zumaia coastal stretch and three Special Areas of Conservation (SAC) included within the Natura 2000 Network.

The UNESCO figure and the protection measures in force have been fundamental to develop a model of tourism based on ecotourism, giving rise to an attractive destination for the visitor while respecting the environment.

A fascinating journey through the history of our planet

Geology as a common thread

Can you imagine being able to travel through 60 million years of Earth's history? It may sound like a remote and far away trip, but the truth is that the 13 kilometers of cliffs between the towns of Mutriku, Deba and Zumaia, are a good starting point to discover and learn about some of the most important episodes of the turbulent history of our planet.
Surely you've heard of the word flysch. Maybe you have also heard of the word karst. It doesn't matter. They are two geological terms and concepts that are closely linked to the landscape that shapes our territory and that will accompany you on your trip along the Basque Coast. Immerse yourself first hand in a natural paradise that elegantly combines sea and mountains, a territory that combines a geological heritage of international relevance and jealously guards a unique culture and unparalleled cuisine.
