One of the most popular areas of agritourism is the Basque country, territory, country of great beauty and great cultural vitality. The diversity of this ancient land and agrarian tradition make it the ideal place for a holiday in its many hotels and cottages, farmhouses and camping grounds.
Its cuisine is also an important pillar for rural tourism as the main ingredients that are produced are harvested and produced in the old way. Several rural hotels and farms have vegetable farms and where guests can help themselves and prepare their own dishes.
The country hotels of the three Basque provinces, Alava, Vizcaya and Guipuzcoa, are often involved in areas of natural beauty or national parks.
