Exploring Bilbao with 10 Project Managers from Scandinavia

Incentives Barcelona shows us the best of Bilbao

For many foreigners Bilbao is still an unknown city that offers a wide range of options to the visitor, especially to lovers of good wine and rich gastronomy, but also for those who seek culture, art and architecture. From May to September 2019 the company Norwegian will link Stockholm and Oslo with Bilbao on Wednesdays and Saturdays with direct flights, which will make it easier to take Scandinavian groups to discover this great city.

From 25th till 27th of January 2019 Incentives Barcelona organized a Fam Trip to Bilbao for 10 event organizers from Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland to show them the best spots and what better way to start the day with a walking tour under the sun with a maximum temperature of 20º. After many rainy days, it seemed to all of us a miracle that the sun came out in January.

During the Fam Trip the group was able to enjoy an authentic Pintxos Workshop, a special visit to the Guggenheim Museum and a dinner at a Michelin star restaurant. The next day we went to visit the city of San Sebastian, passing through Getaria, which is a charming fishing village with a picturesque harbor and medieval streets. The views from Mount Igueldo to “Playa de la Concha” of San Sebastian were the perfect ending.


Thanks to Hotel NH Collection Villa in Bilbao for collaborating with the group in their fantastic establishment. This 4* hotel has 142 modern rooms and was completely renovated in 2012.

We would like to thank DMC Incentives Barcelona for their great work organizing this Educational Trip. They have more than 5 years of experience with this destination and have offered very original and traditional activities. Everybody said goodbye with a big smile, hoping to return with some groups or to come back in order to get to know the destination more in depth. Thank you for coming and giving us the opportunity to show you another great city.
