Family plans

 

We bring a few varied plans for all tastes to do with children, very close to San Sebastian, in the towns of Errenteria, Lezo, Oiartzun and Pasaia. Enjoy your free time with your children!


  • 1.  Going up to the Fort of San Marko: Nature and history

San marko testu gabe

 

Hiking up Mount San Marcos in Errenteria is a highly recommended and complete excursion. On the one hand, in this fort of the late nineteenth century, we will enjoy climbing to the top to enjoy the privileged views of the entire coastline and surrounding mountains, and also until November 20, from Wednesday to Sunday, we can access the museum of the fort and see the replicas of soldiers and guns of those days. On the other hand, do not forget your picnic to eat at the picnic área outside the fort where you can relax while your children play in the games area.

 2.-From one tower another – Jaizkibel

 

Lezo

 

We will take out our exploratory instinct and start from Lezo in search of the XIX centrury Carlist towers of Jaizkibel. Nowadays you can still see 5 towers at its top. To access by car, take the GI-3440 road to the the summit, leave the car at the car park, and take the route from tower to tower. The route from here has no difficulty, and we can follow the indications of the way of Santiago that passes next to these turrets.

3.- Entering the mines of Arditurri!

 

Ardit

The Mines of Arditurri have been exploited since Roman times, 2000 years ago. We propose you to go into the heart of Aiako Harria and see the mines. There, we will have the opportunity to visit from the mines of the Roman era to the vestiges of different eras.

In addition, a very attractive way to get to this mining preserve is to cycle through the Arditurri greenway. The road crosses the entire Oiartzun valley and takes us to the foot of Aiako Harria. This 7km long greenway for pedestrians and cyclists follows the route that the old train of the mine made. It's also linked to the bike lane of Donostia.
