SELF-GUIDED CYCLING IN STAGES ROUTE
BASOAK Aralar - Irati - Mountain Bike
BASOAK Aralar - Irati MTB is a mountain bike route in its purest form for mountain biking. It crosses the North of Navarre from West to East joining in its walk the Aralar Range, in the 1st stage and the Selva de Irati, in the last one. These two first quality Natural Spaces, join in the central stages, the Ultzama Valley (the Navarre Switzerland) and the endless forests full of trails of "flow"
of Quinto Real and Roncesvalles recently reinterpreted by the modern philosophy of tracks of BTT developed in the area by the MTB and Trail EREMUA Center.
The result is an online cycling route with a quality difficult to overcome throughout the peninsular territory.
The PIRINEOS PUNTO BIKE proposal to pedal the route is in broad strokes, a Self Guided Pack which includes the Half Board Accommodations, the Tracks of the route and the Luggage Transport from hotel to hotel.
As an option, if the cyclists use their own vehicle, we take care of transferring them in Taxibike to the starting point of BASOAK on the morning of the first day so that at the end of the tour their vehicles are at the end point of the route.
In the proposal can also participate non-cyclists as companions.

Pedalear relajado en las campas de Unakoputzua.
Vamos cambiando de valle y el Pirineo Navarro comienza a ocupar nuestro horizonte.
Descenso hacia Lekunberri. Si la nieve pinta las cumbres de las Malloak de Aralar, la temporada ciclista en BASOAK MTB llega a su fin
The prairies of the Ultzama Valley end abruptly in the forest front of the Quinto Real. We could say that here we enter the Pyrenees.
Typical "carpeted" trail of the Navarrese Pyrenees
Forest roads, usual in valley bottoms
"Fauna" typical and abundant in the environment. With us we are all already.
Maximum expression of the Navarre "flow" on the northern face of the Adi Mountain
Col de Aratun, geographical reference of the Adi massif.
Path along the eastern slope of the Adi. We are at the highest point of the route.
Demanding climb between the Sorogain Lodge and the Txasperro summit
The Colegiata de Roncesvalles in its environment. Above, on the right it is possible to see the Port of Ibañeta tomorrow´s stage continues.
We leave Roncesvalles and head back towards the Irati Forest, crossing the southern slopes of the Pyrenees.
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.
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.
