Excursion and Banquet

  • At the beginning of the conference you will be asked if you would like to attend one, both, or neither of the events described below:
  • The Excursion will take place on the afternoon of Wednesday 6th July (depending on the weather forecast). We will go to the mythic Basque mountain “la Rhune. The ascent will be made in a typical 1920’s train. After the visit to the summit there will be two options: a return to the bus by train followed by a visit to a typical Basque village, or a descent on foot (restricted to healthy and suitably equipped people – hiking shoes, sticks (if accustomed), sun hat, water bottle) to the banquet location, under the supervision of J. Mascetti and S. Coussan.


  • The Banquet will take place in a typical Basque auberge: “Axafla Baïta“. (Please advise the local committee if you have a special diet, if you do not eat meat or fish, if you are vegetarian or vegan, if you do not eat pork, if you suffer from a food allergy etc).
