In the heart of Basque Country
The region of Goierri is in the southeast of Guipuzcoa, bordering on Alava and Navarra. If you drive on the A1, you will see how these beautiful villages on both sides of the road have been able to keep their traditions alive.
30 minutes away from Donostia-San Sebastian
19 local treasures
Our region has 19 villages, most of them with fewer than 1000 inhabitants, and all with views of the two national parks: a rare occurrence you can only find in Goierri, a region between two mountain ranges. If you’re travelling to San Sebastián, you can take a 30 minute drive for a quick trip to our valley, where you will be delighted not only by our nature and gastronomy, but by the Basque culture and history: in the highest points of the region you can find very early evidence of human life like tumulus and menhirs, in both sierras, Aralar and Aizkorri.
Goierri shows a different way of living: country life, pure air, natural products and a great variety of landscapes. Enjoy this part of Euskadi through national parks, mountains, walks and meeting its locals. They will show you their traditions, their history and their cuisine. No stress or worries in our land!
Let’s see what Goierri has to offer you, village by village
