Want to hike through Spain? See the real country rather than just the touristy areas? Bilbao is a beautiful city located in the Basque Country, in the north of Spain. Over the last few years especially, it has undergone massive changes to become the cosmopolitan and cultural city it is today. We have thousands of tourists coming every year to see amazing sites such as the famous Guggenheim museum, to enjoy local cuisine and immerse themselves in the city life and explore the many activities Bilbao has on offer. One of the many great things about Bilbao is it's location: The city isn't only very near the coast, but it is also surrounded by mountains.
