Autumn, one of the most special seasons in the Basque Country
Autumn is the season par excellence for the forests of Euskadi, whose mantle of colors extends through the treetops transforming a landscape of indescribable beauty.
A unique moment to glimpse this spectacle of nature and enjoy the colors, haze and autumn light outdoors.
We are very lucky that our hotel is located in one of the most special environments of the Basque Country, the Gorbeia Nature Reserve.
This makes it a very special place, where our guests have the opportunity to enter our forests, disconnecting from the stress of the city to enjoy a landscape as unique as it is changing.
Discover the variety of experiences designed to nourish, inspire and renew your spirit. Activities designed to enjoy with each of the senses.
The beauty and majesty of our forests invite to be explored by travelers who want to experience new sensations or connect in a genuine way with nature.
These are some of the experiences you can enjoy especially at this time of year.
Shinrin-yoku or forest bathing
Shinrin – yoku or forest bathing, is a meditation technique of Japanese origin that consists of walking among the trees, paying full attention to each of the colors, smells and sensations that the forest transmits to us.
It has been shown that these types of activities bring enormous benefits to everyone who practices them, inviting us to connect with nature, recover our peace and inner balance.
Nordic walking is a practice from Nordic cross-country skiers. This sport is practiced with support sticks, hence its name «Nordic walking» due to its similarity with this sport.
The Nordic walking consists of walking with canes specially designed for the development of this activity, with the aim of optimizing the physical effort made by our body when walking.
Nordic walking brings multiple benefits such as: strengthening the entire body, oxygenation, relaxation or improvement of strength and coordination.
Guided visit to the Gorbeia nature reserve
Visiting the beech of Otzarreta or strolling through the natural reserve of Gorbeia seems like something essential, especially in autumn.
Therefore, from the Ellauri Hotel, we always recommend our guests to make, at least, a guided tour of the region.
It will be the hotel hosts themselves who discover you first hand part of the treasures that the Basque Country hides. Because the best way to know a place is always from the hand of its people.
Guided tour to txakolí winery
A guided tour through a family farm where the winery owners themselves will transmit their passion for one of the most emblematic wines of our land, the Txacolí.
A cultural and gastronomic experience where you can enjoy a tasting of wine and gastronomy typical of the Basque Country.
Depending on the time of the year, we usually offer our clients different experiences.
We are lucky to be located in a privileged place, which allows us to offer different activities during almost the whole year.
In addition to the proposed activities, from the Ellauri Hotel we promote to our clients a wide range of experiences always related to nature and the environment, such as:
- Bicycle rental
- Tai – chi or meditation
- Spiritual retirement
