Ø  The Rhune train (Price : 20€ per person) :

      6 miles from Saint-Jean-de-Luz, this genuine 1924 rack and pinion  collector’s train takes you to the legendary Basque country Rhune peak, 2970 feet above sea level. The French and Spanish coasts and the chain of the Pyrenees extend as far as the eye can see. A 35 minute climb at 6 mph in the heart of unspoiled nature. Discover the Pottoks, rugged little basque poneys living free and wild. You’ll also see manech ewes, and vultures typical of the Pyrenees mountains.

Ø  Saint-Jean-de-Luz (Price : 10€ per person)

      Famous Basque coast sea resort. Saint-Jean-de-Luz shelters one of France’s most important fishing ports. Handsome old ship owners’ homes bear witness to a rich history. The elegant seafront gives a taste of yesteryear, with villas that can be reached only by picturesque footbridges. You will have free time to stroll. Saint-Jean-de-Luz has many shops in its historical center, just a few steps away from the beach. Many pedestrian-only streets make it a pleasure to discover the town while doing a little shopping.
