The MTB route of the BASQUE PYRENEES forests



4 Stages of Pure Mountain Bike through the Atlantic Pyrenees


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.

Forest roads, usual in valley bottoms

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.
