San Sebastian is my favorite city in the north of Spain, next to the sea with beautiful small villages around and one of the best places to eat in the world!



Transportation from San Sebastian (Guipuzcoa) to the Rioja area:

You have three different options to take one of our Rioja Wine Tours from San Sebastian :


1) With your own car:

The easiest way, since San Sebastian (Guipuzcoa) is around 2 hours from Logroño (the capital of La Rioja), approximately 180 km. There are two different routes, but I would recommend to take the A-15 highway to Pamplona, including around 6 km in toll highway called “AP15” whose price is 2.15 Euros (each way) and then, from Pamplona you have to take the A-12 highway to Logrono.

You can take the train in San Sebastian (Guipuzcoa) at 8:57am and you will arrive to Miranda de Ebro (Burgos) at 10:52am where we will be waiting for you to start our tour together.

To go back to San Sebastian by train you have 2 options and both of them are leaving from Logrono (La Rioja). We will tell you which train you have to take according to the route, if you should get on the train at 5:41pm arriving at San Sebastian at 7:48pm; or if you should take the train at 6:50pm arriving at San Sebastian at 8:49pm.

Overview of San Sebastian, Spain

San Sebastian, or Donostia as it is called in Basque, is a coastal city located in the Basque Autonomous Community, on the coast of the Bay of Biscay, 20 km (12 miles) from the French border. San Sebastian has a circular bay with pristine white sand beaches that have long attracted wealthy beach-goers in search of sun and sophistication. In more recent years, San Sebastian has gained significant fame for its cuisine. Despite its relative small size (186,000 inhabitants), international events are also held here. The most famous of these is the San Sebastian International Film Festival.

The approximate distance to Logroño (La Rioja’s capital) in a straight line is 100 Kms. There are some trains and buses which connect both cities in about 2 hours, so it’s easy to take one of our Rioja Wine Tours from San Sebastian.

Professional, Fun, and Well Organized

Communication was very clear from the beginning, as Rebecca helped us plan a day that was customized to our interests. She picked us up from where we stayed near San Sebastian, and drove us to Rioja.
