SELF-GUIDED CYCLING ROUTE
EREMUA - IRATI - Mountain Bike
EREMUA - IRATI is an All Mountain in stages cycling route. It is located in the West of the Pyrenean mountain range, in what is known as the Basque Pyrenees, and joins the MTB and Trail Center EREMUA, located in the valley of Esteribar, with the Irati Forest.
The track consists essentially of mountain trails of medium difficulty with several sections that can be classified as Enduro and for which there are more Trail style alternatives.
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.

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.
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.
Collegiate church of Roncesvalles, one of the most important places in the history of Navarre.
Ibañeta Mountain Pass between Orreaga-Roncesvalles and la France. Its condition of natural passage used since prehistory between the two slopes of the Pyrenees make it the collective imaginary in a place linked to the Battle of Roncesvalles.
Ascent to Col de Lindus from Ibañeta. We move away from the Way of St. James...
... and we continue through our "deep" Navarrese Pyrenees.
Between the Col de Lindus and Aldaparri the landscape will not be wasted.
Descent of enduro style on the slopes of Aldaparri. For those who prefer "softer" emotions, the route will descend to Urepel on a more relaxed track.
We enter the forests of the Quinto Real
Sections of "flow" in the Txasperro meadows before the long descent to Urepel, one of the stars of the day.
Powerful descent towards Urepel
Interiors of the northern slope of the Basque / French Pyrenees. Paths of the territory known as Quinto Norte.
Epic finale through the marked traces of the Nafar-Whistler route of the Eremua btt Center. As in the enduro section of Aldaparri, for those who prefer to avoid this demanding section, we have another, more relaxed alternative.
This stage that we add here to enter the Selva de Irati shares track with the last stage of BASOAK MTB, the route in stages in line that crosses in 4 days the North of Navarra from West to East joining with the track the Sierra de Aralar with the forests of Irati.
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.
Dam of the Irabia reservoir in the heart of the SELVA de IRATI.
If we decide to include the stage through the IRATI FOREST we will add one more stay in this last hotel.
