STAGE PAMPLONA-PIRINEOS Is the proposal -VIP- COMFORT of PIRINEOS PUNTO BIKE to carry out cycling routes in NAVARRA and surroundings.
We stayed at the Hotel Don Carlos, a spacious, comfortable and perfectly located hotel complex on the bank of the Arga next to the Camino de Santiago, to the BASOAK cycling route and to the roads that direct us to the PYRENEES.
The for the Gastronomic Experiences that complements the Sports Activity. Experiences in which we will serve as commensals of the culinary creations of some of the most renowned Gourmets of the city.
Iruñea-Pamplona - Hotel Don Carlos - www.hdoncarlos.com
An environment of maximum tranquility five minutes from Pamplona
An ideal place for those who enjoy the tranquility of the open air natural spaces, the friendly and personal treatment and the wine culture and good gastronomy.
30 fully equipped rooms: air conditioning, full bathroom, piped music, TV with freeview, free WI-FI, 24-hour reception and laundry.
Wide spaces of recovery, reunion or isolation. It will depend on what we need.
We are in IRUÑEA-PAMPLONA, a city full of life and strongly linked to sport. A PUNTO BIKE in which it is almost obliged to coincide with some type of event during our Stage. In the photograph, the peloton of the Euskal Itzulia 2017 makes its "Paseillo de honor" by the Town Hall Square.
We will also know PAMPLONA from the hand of the Gourmets who every day strive to maintain the prestige of the gastronomy of the city in the right place. A Gastronomic Experience f a high level.
One of our experiences will be the Europa Restaurant - which corresponds to the plates of the photographs - that with 1 Michelin Star and 2 Repsol Suns will open the list of proposals that can be seen in detail in the tab HIGHLIGHTS
Some of the days we chose to use the service of restoration of the own Don Carlos, it contributes an important point of relax to a Stage in which the sport component adds an evident fatigue that goes adding itself along the days. Our own experience tells us that sometimes you feel like staying in a relaxed "house", and go down to dinner at the otherwise excellent restaurant of the hotel.
The proposals of PIRINEOS PUNTO BIKE to realize STAGES of high quality bicycle tourism with lodging in IRUÑEA-PAMPLONA -in which we cycle through NAVARRA- are presented with a guiding logic but not previously defined.
The dates and the level of difficulty are chosen by the users and the routes are agreed during the same Stage according to the interests of the group and of the meteorology. Navarra has a very varied geography and that also concerns the meteorological time, it is frequent that when it rains in the Pyrenees in other zones to the South it is possible to roll in dry, which generally is an option that the cyclist prefers.
The map with routes that you can see below is a reference guide of what can be a Stage of 7 days that obviously in this proposal of two days we will reduce to two. The criterion is that we want to "choose the best" and for this the common denominator regardless of the difficulty we choose, is that we move in taxibike to the starting point of the stage and the taxibike itself is responsible for picking us up at the point where we finish the route. In this way - as you can see in the map - in some occasions the routes are circular and in others we take advantage of to realize interesting stages in line.
Regardless of the taxibike, we have at all times a guide with the group and a support vehicle during the march.

LEVEL 1: Routes of between 40 and 65 kilometers in length with an unevenness that can approach the 1000 meters but that normally will approach more to the 500 or 600 meters of ascent.
It can be combined with other activities of a more tourist nature such as visits to monuments, villages, wineries, natural landscapes, etc.
LEVEL 2: Routes between 65 and 110 kilometers in length with an unevenness that can oscillate between 1000 and 2500 meters.
LEVEL 3: Routes of more than 110 kilometers in length and with an unevenness usually above 2500 meters of ascent.
Information only for guidance. Sometimes the data will not match since, for example, we can give level 3 to a route with a mileage or unevenness that should correspond to level 2 but in which we have to overcome a high number of sections of port with very hard slopes.
