The small Basque Alps have much to discover.

We will find ourselves in the most emblematic corner of the Park, the Urkiola Sanctuary, visible from the car park. Once there, in the highest part of the Urkiola Pass itself, we will be at an altitude of 700 metres.
The route we offer through the woods and meadows of Urkiola, full of unique panoramic views, will surprise you. This incomparable spot also offers several alternatives: the walk around the seven crosses is very interesting, and we also recommend that you don’t miss the meteorite that can be found near the Sanctuary.
On this hike through the Urkiola Natural Park we will enjoy a relaxed route, enlivened with stories about the place and its way of life. The route is more than 8 kilometres long and has a 500-metre ascent.
We will walk along a path towards Urkolamendi mountain, the heart of Urkiola, continuing towards the Pol-Pol fields, full of greenery and fauna. We continue on to the Asuntze pass in the direction of the Larrano refuge and the Santa Bárbara Hermitage. A beautiful route that will leave no one indifferent.
We would like all participants to take into account a series of indications that they must comply with. It is compulsory to wear suitable clothing and footwear for the activity, as well as food and drink to replenish your strength at any time. It is also advisable to bring a change of clothes so that you will be comfortable once we return to the vehicles and the activity is over.
