Accommodation

You will stay in the luxury format and the accommodation offered is in double rooms plus one single room when the number of participants is odd. That means more than two people are never staying in one room.

First night: Pamplona - Pamplona Catedral Hotel

The base of Pirineos PUNTO BIKE in Pamplona is located in an indisputable four-star hotel located in the old part of the city. The hotel is strategically located close to the starting point of Basoak and Fuentes del Vino routes.

Second night: Arbizu - Hotel Olatzea

The base of Pirineos PUNTO BIKE in Arbizu is an ancient mill renovated and converted into a new and comfortable hotel. The original mill premises are in the hotel basement and can be seen from the conference room that has been installed there. The route can also be started at this point.

Third night: Elgorriaga - Hotel Balneario Elgorriaga

Hotel Balneario Elgorriaga is a spa hotel where the corridor of the river Bidasoa and the valley of Baztán meet. It is a spring of peace and relaxation, a charming spa located in a natural area with outstanding Pyrenean landscapes. The hotel has 48 double rooms, 15 single rooms, nine junior suites, and three suites.

Fourth night: Aincille - Hotel Restaurant Pecoitz

The hotel is designed for guests to relax peacefully and comfortable in spacious rooms overlooking the mountains and the green countryside. It is located near Saint Jean Pied de Port and has rooms for one to four people as well as a playground for children.

Notes: In some parts of the route, seat availability can be limited. Therefore, should not be possible to stay in the offered points, the organization will offer alternative accommodation in the vicinity. These may be slightly distant from the official finalizing point of the stage, but they will always be of similar or superior quality to the ones offered without affecting the final price of the package.

Program

On this tour, you will ride through the North of Navarre, by the Basque Pyrenees.

  • First day: From Pamplona, you will head to the Sierra of Urbasa, getting from there to La Sakana Valley.
  • Second day: You will surround the Sierra de Aralar from the South and, after passing through Leizaldea, you will go to the Baztan.
  • Third day: The stage queen - You will reach the mountains of Baja Navarre, already in the Pyrenees and by the massif of the Arbailles, you will reach the Selva de Irati.
  • Last day: The last day is for the spectacular Port of Arnostegi. You will enter again to Navarre until the old Iruñea. The common denominator of the route will be the forest. That is why it's named Basoak (forest), using the language that has been spoken in the area for hundreds of years.
