A walk along the cliffs and paths of the Geopark, shows the visitor how the flysch octopus lives in its natural habitat.
In Zumaia, it was habitual to catch octopus and, along with them, limpets, winkles, mussels, crawfish, txoazkiñak (warty crabs), velvet crabs, sea urchins and more.
Once you have discovered Zumaia, something invites you to return, urges you, entraps you. Perhaps it is the tentacles of the octopus that inhabit Zumaia’s waters and which, since 2004, have been the star of Olarro Eguna, a popular festival that aims to further tighten the octopus’ hold. Locals talk of a special relationship between the town and the octopus, which are considered neighbours, along with the pulperos (octopus vendors) and octopus driers who still work using the area’s traditional methods.
Available only in Spanish and Basque.
From 15,00€ / pax.
