Details of the Plazaola Greenway 

Fantastic getaway between Pamplona and San Sebastian along the Plazaola Greenway by bicycle.

With a smooth route and away from the roads almost in its entirety, you will know the most unspoiled places of Leitzarán. Pedal through Atlantic forests, green slopes and villages between mountains in one of the most beautiful areas of the Basque Country and Navarre as well as being listed as a Natural Biotope.

The route runs almost entirely through the Plazaola Greenway, first in a slight ascent and then in gentle descent to Andoain. It is very pleasant to pedal without difficulties through its valleys, forests and small villages in the middle of mountains and green valleys. It also has 41 tunnels that make the experience even more interesting.

This cycling trip can be done in two versions:

2 stages and 2 nights. 95km approx. from Pamplona to San Sebastian.

3 stages and 3 nights. 120km approx. From Pamplona to San Sebastian + Donostia city.

Weekend option, 2 stages and 2 nights Pamplona – San Sebastián

Day 1: Arrival at the first hotel the night before the first stage. Arrival in Pamplona

It’s time to enjoy Pamplona, its streets, its castle and its gastronomy the day before starting to cycle. Here you will receive the bicycles if you have rented them. Today is a day to relax and get ready to cycle along the Plazaola Greenway.

Day 2: Pamplona – Lekunberri 40 km and 450 m of elevation gain

We will start pedaling towards the exit of the capital of Navarra. Under the watchful eye of Mount San Cristobal, we will approach the beginning of the Plazaola Greenway. We will ride the first kilometers of the route, ascending gently until we reach the old train station of Lekunberri.

Day 3: Lekunberri – San Sebastián 65 km and 170 m of elevation gain

The last stage is fascinating. As soon as we start pedaling, leaving behind the old station, we will suddenly enter a beautiful landscape. Green slopes, forests and valleys accompany us to the end of the Greenway. In its more than 40 tunnels we have to take shelter, and we will have to put our foot down in the mandatory detours to save the closed tunnels, but it will be worth it.
