Location

This Basoak Pyrenees tour will cover three different environments; Middle Mountain Navarre, Basque Walls, and Pyrenean Colossus located in Spain. You will also venture a little through the France-side of Pyrenees. Going into more detail, the first of the environments is the Middle Mountain Navarre, also called the Navarrese "no-Pirineo". This territory is made up of the peripheral regions of the Pyrenees, the Baztan, Leitzaldea, the Sakana Valley, the Pamplona Basin, Tierra Estella, and the Sierras of Andia and Urbasa.

Its kilometers are characterized by alternating sections of flat roads in the bottom of the valleys with mountain passes of four to eight kilometers and 400 meters of unevenness by the average term, sprinkled from time to time by some levels of a smaller entity. The second of the environments, the Basque Walls, is a terrain to "play cycling", an almost constant succession of ports of small size, two to three kilometers, in the style of the one-day classics that abound in this sport.

You will roam the narrow, twisting roads that connect the rural Gipuzkoa full of meadows, forests, small towns, and hamlets with the immediate industrial Gipuzkoa, with its factories and industrial estates, which will be kept safe due to the abundance of roads alternatives to the main ones and the highways that absorb most of the traffic.

You will recognize yourselves immersed in the images that you have seen so many times on television during the broadcast of the Euskal Itzulia and La Vuelta a España when it crosses these lands. In the third of the environments, there is no doubt about the term to be used, you will be absolutely in the Kingdom of the Pyrenean Colossus.
