At River Maritime Museum (Museum Maritimo Rio), you’ll greet your skipper and board a sailboat limited to five passengers. As your boat begins its relaxed journey, you’ll listen to history-rich commentary and admire the stunning scenery surrounding the Bilbao Estuary, or Ría de Bilbao.
Like a metropolitan phoenix, Bilbao has recently undergone a radical transformation from struggling industrial city to thriving artistic hub. Marvel at the evidence of urban rejuvenation as you cruise and notice landmarks such as the iconic Guggenheim Museum.
Gaze at formerly decaying factories now converted into affluent accommodation, and see the Zorrozaurre, an artificial peninsula. Capture photographs of the UNESCO-listed Vizcaya Bridge before cruising through bourgeoisie neighborhoods such as Getxo, Neguri and Las Arenas.
Commence your return journey to dry land as you sip on a fruity glass of Rioja wine and admire the city sights from the water.
