Mountain
“Pour monter La Rhune, on met de bonnes chaussures (au minimum des baskets). Ce n’est pas difficile mais le chemin est caillouteux et exposé au soleil. Je vous recommande de choisir un jour pas trop chaud (20-25 max degrés) et de commencer tôt : 8h du matin et comptez 1h30 si vous n’avez pas l’habitude. Il y a un bar au sommet, vous pourrez y manger des omelettes aux pommes de terre ou un sandwich au jambon Serrano par exemple. La vie par temps clair est spectaculaire, on voit toute la côte 🤩”

Train
“Prenez le train, mais il vaut lieux réserver avant sur le site. Sublime promenade pour les petits et les grands // Take the train (better booking on the website) for a fabulous ride for the small and the big ones! ”

Lighthouse
“Historic lighthouse that you can go up for just a couple of Euros per person. Well worth the views on a clear day. Be warned thought that it closes if the winds are too high, and also is closed for lunch, and there is limited space at the top. ”
