Joserra Combarro

Joserra Combarro, a native of Bilbao, Spain, received a degree in law school but has never practiced as a lawyer, working instead for Bilbao's city council until he decided to become a mountain guide. "I love being a Trip Leader in the land I was so lucky to be born in. Basque country has everything—mountain trails, woodlands, beaches, wine country, tiny, unknown villages, and our own Basque language, culture, and sports—what more could you ask for? I especially love the sea, so a hike along the beach and a swim afterwards is one of my favorite things to do." Joserra is an energetic traveling companion and a wonderful guide to the hiking trails and hidden corners of northern Spain. Besides hiking and swimming, his passions include running, food and wine, music, and reading. His worldwide travels have taken him to such distant spots as Vietnam, Brazil, and Equatorial Guinea.
