SBC-Day 4: Deba to Markina-Xemein-24km

Day 4: Deba to Markina-Xemein is a solitary walk with few services. Prepare your day pack with plenty of water and food for fuel. One of the tougher days running through the hilly rural Basque valley, with hamlets, forests, and meadows. From the Hermitage of Calvary, the path moves away from the coast and you will not see the sea for several days until Portugalete and Pobeña. This is also one of the most difficult climbs today up to 300m in just 3 kilometres.

Buen Camino!
