YES Autumn might just be our favourite time of the year in San Sebastian!

This season September, October, November in the Basque Country is ticking all the boxes.

Here's our "TOP 10 REASONS" why you should book your trip post Summer.

  1. It's probably the driest months of the year, yes folks it rains in San Sebastian but consistently less in Autumn than Spring.Sunset on Basque Coastline
  2. The weathers still on point, between 18 - 30 degrees. Fresh mornings, sunny, hot days and cool nights, is there anything better?

  3. The sea's still warm so Swimming, Sailing, Surfing and Stand up paddleboarding are all on the cards.jumping into the sea in La Concha bay San Sebastian.
  4. It's harvest time which means if you like wine  a visit to La Rioja is an absolute must. See the inner workings of the wineries at their most exciting when all the magic happens. An absolute treat to see the art of vino.Grapes in La Rioja
  5. They don't call it the beautiful Basque Country for nothing and rolling into Autumn it's spectacular, whether it's hiking inland or out on the coast, bike rides through the woods or exploring up into France on those clear cut days.mountain biking in the woods Basque Country
  6. It's a whole lost quieter, Summers finished and there's a relaxed vibe everywhere from the beaches to the bars.La Concha beach in San Sebastian city
  7. Less people means it's easier to get into exclusive hotels, restaurants and visit our favourite pintxo spots.San Sebastian pintxos
  8. It's swell season, after days and days of small surf September is when those ground swells start to roll in and the whole coast lights up.Basque surf
  9. There's still so much going on with the San Sebastian International film festival in September being a full highlight.San Sebastian International film festival, crowd infront of building Kursaal
