Come with us!

The forest `Bosque de Oma´ in the Biosphere Reserve Urdaibai with its unique and attractive landscape is located 40 km away from Bilbao.

The painter Agustín Ibarrola has created a beautiful painting in the Forest of Oma, where art and nature merge and offer us a game of fascinating lights and colors.

At the beginning of the route towards the forest of ‘Oma’ do not miss to visit the Caves of Santimamiñe with its cave paintings. Although the main room is currently not accessible due to restoration work, you can simply get into the cave and its sanctuary by means of a great 3D projection in the cave lounge.

Click here in Bosque de Oma or Cuevas de Santimamiñe to get all important information about the tour.

A small and useful advise for your family getaway to the Bosque de Oma: do not show your children photos or even posts before starting your travel, otherwise you will be asked each day anew when it is finally going into this `cool forest´….
