Astero‘s weekly bulletin always brings interesting news related to the Basque Country and the Diaspora. This week, we will learn about the Basque International Summer School (organized by the University of the Basque Country/Euskal Herriko Unibertsitatea), getting your club or center’s Basque film featured by Laburbira, and touring the Basque Country with Go Basque tours.

Go Basque Tours
We have also been contacted by Go Basque, a young travel and tourism agency based in Donostia-San Sebastian. This company specializes in designing custom tours throughout the Basque Country, and their mission is to share “the culture, identity, and long-standing traditions of the Basque region by giving visitors the opportunity to interact directly with locals….” To watch a promotional video on what they offer click here, or simply visit their website to see what kind of tours they can arrange.
