Astigarraga, just 10 kilometres away from San Sebastian, is considered the heart of cider and sagardotegis (cider houses), where Sagardoetxea, the Basque Cider Museum, is located.
This is where you will learn about the tradition of cider culture and enjoy a guided tasting of cider with txotx, apple products and pintxos.
To get there, we suggest an electric bicycle route along the banks of the Urumea River, which runs entirely along a cycle lane, making it a safe and pleasant journey.
Without a doubt, a visit to the Basque cider museum is an immersion in the juices and gastronomic tradition of Euskadi, which has this drink, the cider house culture and good food as its flagship.
You need to be able to ride a bike and be between 1.50 (4’11”) and 1.90 metres (6’3”) tall to ride the bikes comfortably.
Footwear and clothing suitable for cycling and the weather are RECOMMENDED.
