Can anyone recommend an aire for us to use prior to us boarding the ferry at Bilbao.

Cheers

I've used this one Dave - 26 Kobeta, 48002 Bilbao
Latitude : 43.2593 or N 43° 15' 33.47
Longitude : -2.96338 or W -2° 57' 48.16

Great views of the city. It can feel a bit hairy coming up but the buses go so I reckoned I could!

Bus into town just a few minutes away. You MUST go n see the Guggenheim if you have time - not so much for the content, but the building is A-MAZE-ING!!

But if you stop at the café make sure they process your bill in local currency.

Enjoy!

If you intend to visit Bilbao the best place to stay is the old port in Algorta 10 mins walk to the metro cost of metro 1-30euro each way if you intend to use the metro much and are over 65 you can get a card for 3 euro which allows to travel any where for 35 cents per journey you can also travel to San Sebastian by train for 4euro each way the problem is it takes over 2 hours each way.If you want a free aires there is one at Sopelana water and emptying free electricity paid May to Sept open all year the cost of the metro is 1.90e each way i dont recomend you park in the ferry port as there is a problem with migrants trying to get to the UK

We do not want to visit Bilbao just simply say on an aire before we board the ferry. I have looked at the Sopelana aire on campercontact but to be honest out of 20 reviews it only averages a 6.6 and the most recent review gave it a 1, so I think we will pass.

cheers
