Where else can you spend your nights in the thumping nightclubs of San Sebastian, but wake up in nature surrounded by rustling leaves and twittering birds?

Once we've built enough of an appetite, it's back to the camp for a to fill up on lunch prepared by our in-house chef and maybe, just maybe, brave that first icy cold beer of the day.
There are a number of different activities in the region surrounding.

This surf camp will take place in the Zarautz Beach Camp. Euskal Herria is the name of this place in the local language. Pais Vasco, Pays Basque, the Basque Country. The elbow of the French and Spanish Atlantic coastline is an area filled with culture and natural beauty. Home to Europes oldest language, its most sturdy people, and some of the most incredible vistas your eyes have ever had the pleasure of taking in.
San Sebastian is the jewel on this coastline, the coolest of Spanish seaside resorts, as yet untainted by the filthy mitts of mass European tourism. Here the European, and indeed global, youth come to play, party and surf under the sun. This is a city with more Michelin stars than any other city in the world, bar Paris, and with a population of a mere 400,000, And after? They say San Sebastian has more bars in its Old Town than any other city in Europe, and considering that every second shop is a bar.
Stoke Travel likes to mix it up: banana pancakes, ham, cheese & mushroom omelets, poached eggs with bacon, French toast and on occasion, reminisce with the old toad in a hole. Veggies, no worries they cater for you too.
