Cider holds a prized spot in any Basque’s glass, and an annual visit to the cider house is a sacred ritual. Experience this incredibly unique yearly local rite of passage with one of our guides in this tour, perfect for groups and friends.

We visit an authentic ciderhouse, whose walls are lined with barrels of freshly fermented cider, waiting to be tapped whenever thirst strikes. You will feast family style on chorizo a la sidra, a spanish omelette with salt cod, cod with sweet peppers and onions, and txuleta (grilled bone-in prime rib cooked over an open fire). Dessert is local sheep’s cheese with walnuts and membrillo. The meal is always punctuated with laughs and unlimited visits to the cider barrels.

You will line up with the locals to catch cider arching in a stream across the room. Perfecting the art of the pour is not easy, but the practice is fun. A lunch or dinner at the cider house is synonymous with having a great time and eating even better!

As a part of our tenth anniversary trip, I booked the private dinner and cider house tour with MIMO. We could not have been more pleased! Iñigo was incredibly knowledgable and friendly and the food and cider were absolutely delicious. It felt like having a great dinner with a friend! We had such a great time pouring our own cider from the barrels and learning about the role of the cider house in Basque culture. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who loves a great Basque dinner, entertaining conversation and cider.

We did a Cider Tour back in May with Aranxia, with our friends, and it was one of the most amazing experiences we have ever had, firstly the cider is great and so much fun to try and to catch in a glass, but the food was exquisite. On top of this we got to listen to a local Basque choir sing as they were having lunch on the day, as well as traditional Basque songs, they sang happy birthday to our friend, the whole day was truly memorable and big special thanks to our lovely host Aranxia!
