La Rhune Train and Summit Vistas

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from $150.07 CAD / Adult
Board the La Rhune Train and discover one of the most breathtaking viewpoints in all of Basque Country. This vintage “rack” railway has been taking folks on the 35-minute ride to the top of La Rhune Mountain since 1924. Relax and relish in the views as the train hugs the mountain slope and winds higher and higher to the summit some 3,000 feet above sea level. Along the way, you’re likely to pass herds of red-headed sheep and wild ponies, called “pottocks”, that roam freely among the highlands of Basque Country. Once at the top of La Rhune Mountain, enjoy panoramas that seem to stretch forever. Marvel at sweeping vistas of the French and Spanish coasts in one direction and the majestic peaks of the Pyrenees in the other. For an unmatched perspective of Basque Country and its rugged beauty, nothing tops a ride on the La Rhune Train.
