ABOUT ME

My name is Julen Landaluze Gorostiaga, I was born in 1988 and I grew up, in the village of Aretxabaleta. Located in the deep valleys of the Basque Country (in the heart).

At 2009, I came to San Sebastian to study teaching. I began to work as a surf instructor and as the years went by, I start felling the need to enjoy the natural and cultural diversity offered by the Basque Country. Consequently, in 2012 I began to dream of wanting to offer a tourism service, for those who would like to enjoy the pure life of the Basque Country. After a lot of work full of illusion, happily in August 2015, “ AUPA HI! ” was born.

WHAT MEANS THE WORD “ AUPA HI! “ :
It is a Basque saying that is used very often, to greet, give encouragement and also good vibes. Translation : AUPA = UP / HI = YOU
* Kontuz, ez hutzi Translation hitza goian, eta definizioa behean. Jarri dana jarraian.

PHILOSOPHY :
I love good people, nature and the local sphere, because it is what I need to live happy and what gives me hope to believe in a sustainable future. So, my services are focused on the honest, natural, local and happy.

MY GREATEST GIFT :
It has been to see that local people also like to enjoy my services, designed for foreign travelers.

Thank you very much from the bottom of my heart, to all who help me making this dream possible !
