As well as the academic offer the program includes several excursions and cultural activities to emblematic places in the Basque Country which will allow you to get to know some of the most striking aspects of our country.

You will get to know cities like Bilbao, an example of the successful fusion of tradition and modernity. From its 7 streets (the medieval heart of the city) to the vanguard architecture of the Guggenheim Museum, this city, with its strong personality, provides us with extensive cultural, gastronomic and leisure activities for all tastes.

You will visit San Telmo Museum, located right in the Old Quarter, which has been transformed into the Museum of Basque Society and Citizenship, and which offers a novel perspective on our society. The archaeological, ethnographic, document and artistic collections in the museum are accompanied by audio-visual resources by the best artists in the Basque Country today and an ambitious program of activities.

You will do the San Sebastian Bay boat trip, which, departing from the city's fishing port, will allow you to discover the different points of interest on the Donostia-San Sebastián coast: Mount Igeldo, the Comb of the Wind, the Miramar Palace…etc.

Both transport and the cost of the arranged visits are included in the three excursions.

The organization reserves the right to make changes to the dates or the destinations of the planned excursions owing to weather reasons or reasons outside its control, and always with the students' safety in mind.
