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.
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.
