Saint-Étienne-de-Baigorry and the Aldudes valley
St Etienne Baigorry is 10km from St Jean Pie de Port and 8km from Narbaitz campsite.
Whilst St Jean Pied de Port is described as a market town, St Etienne de Baigorry is described as a rural community whose “Basque” identity and cultural and economic energy make it a hotspot for people who appreciate “true values.”
Cultural events and sports (choirs, dances, pelota, traditional Basque sports etc.) are fantastic to watch and reflect the unique spirit of this slice of land.
The Aldudes Valley and its villages of Banca, Urepel and Esnazu overlooking St Etienne de Baigorry seal the deal with their buzzing food production: sheep’s milk cheese, mountain fish breeding, Basque pork and more which are all integral to the valley and inland Basque country.
Just like St Jean Pied de Port, St Etienne de Baigorry and the Aldudes Valley are heaven for hiking, trout fishing and any other outdoor activities.
