Sections of "flow" on the descent to the old weapons factory of Orbaitzeta.


Weapons Factory of Orbaizeta, we are very close to the end of the stage, so we can "get lost" for a while between its ruins and its history.

Collegiate church of Roncesvalles, one of the most important places in the history of Navarre.

... and we continue through our "deep" Navarrese Pyrenees.

Nafar-whistler-Eremua descenso-Burdindogi-Eremua-bike-center

Epic finale through the marked traces of the Nafar-Whistler route of the Eremua btt Center. For those who prefer to avoid this demanding section, we have another, more relaxed alternative.

The route alternates wooded areas with others of a more pastoral nature.


Daily scenes on the slopes of Okabe Peak.


One of the most impressive megalithic complexes of the Pyrenees. The 26 cromlechs of Hilarrita in the vicinity of the top of Okabe.


Some technical trails bordering the lake of Irabia.


We reached the top of the Okabe without getting off the bike. When the fog does not prevent it, its 1466 meters of altitude and its location in the center of the Pyrenean axis make up a spectacular viewpoint.


Descent of the Okabe Peak.

  • Best time to go: The route can be done at any time of the year except in winter.
       Summer and autumn are usually the most pleasant seasons; in the spring there may be mud at certain points of the route. In any case, we have to say that the punctual weather of the days in which we are going to make the route is more important than the time itself.

       At the end of Autumn the days are short, but more than enough for our purpose. The Quinto Real and Irati forests "burn" with reds and ochres in those days, and the experience of pedaling during the day and taking a walk at sunset in that sea of colors reinforces the experience.
  • Type of tracks: In general, trails and tracks with more physical than technical demand, both uphill and downhill.
       For the technically demanding sections - that sometimes there are - we offer alternative tracks, although the simplest way not to distort the route is to get off the bike.
  • Ideal bike: Any mountain bike.
  • Orientation: The route is followed by a GPS track.
  • Ciclability: Depending on the technical skills and the strengths of each one, the route is 98% cyclable.
  • Philosophy: The route is designed so that the stages can be completed and we still have a large part of the day to enjoy the place where we are.
  • Provisioning: Although sometimes we find refreshment points, depending on the time of the year we can find that some establishments are closed. In the services waypoint file that we deliver at the beginning of the route the information of each stage is given.
