Many walks, from Urrugne in the neighborhoods!

Urrugne, charming village of the Basque Country, has the peculiarity of being surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean and the Pyrenees.

Originally, the parish of Urrugne occupied all the lands located between the Nivelle and the Bidassoa. Currently, the commune of Urrugne extends on nearly five thousand hectares between La Rhune and Socoa. A stay in Urrugne will be an opportunity to discover the history of this village, rich in its traditions and its heritage: the Saint Vincent church and its organ, the Chapel of Notre Dame of Socorri, Mont Calvaire Chapel and the Château d'Urtubie, which has been inhabited by the same family since 1341.

From Urrugne, take the coastal trail towards the north, towards the fort of Socoa, or towards the south, towards the Abbadia (Hendaye) estate. Whichever direction you choose, the Basque Corniche will offer you a remarkable show.

In September, do not miss the Celebration of the Corniche! If weather and swell conditions are good, you might be one of the lucky ones to see climbing the famous "wave" of Belharra off the cornice that only a few seasoned surfers can surf.

Urrugne is the starting point for many hikes: 4 marked trails of 5, 7.5, 8 and 18 km are available to you. Explore the mountain paths of Urrugne in the middle of the forests, the lake of Xoldokogaina and the pottok (small wild Basque horses that live in freedom). Ask for the brochure "Rando Village" at the tourist office.
