10 kilometres from Saint-Jean-de-Luz, the little tourist train de la Rhune is sure to delight vintage railway enthusiasts. This genuine rack railway, inaugurated in 1924, provides a picturesque trip right to the top of the Basque Country.
Travelling at 9 kilometres per hour, for 35 minutes, passengers reach an altitude of 905 metres and discover a breath-taking, untamed landscape. The coast and the Pyrenees mountain chain extends to the horizon.
Pottokas, Basque ponies, roam in complete freedom. Manech sheep and griffon vultures can also be seen.
Quick! All aboard the little Rhune tourist train!
