  • From Estella to Vitoria

This proposal for the Vasco Navarro Greenway by bike aims to revive part of the route of what was once one of the most important railways in Spain.

Leaving Estella (Navarra), it is a simple and attractive route to Vitoria, entering the Llanada Alavesa and through the best landscapes of Montaña Alavesa. It is considered one of the longest Greenways in the entire country.

This trip can be done in three different versions depending on the number of stages:

Any of the options to travel the Vía Verde of the Vasco Navarro Railway by bicycle will be a very nice and easy getaway that we recommend for people who start with family or friends. They are simple, varied stages with a lot of historical and landscape load.
The slopes are gentle, except for the Laminoria section, a section of eight kilometers with a steep slope, but which will be worth it for the landscape.

Itinerary of the Vasco Navarro Greenway by bike

Recorrido vía verde vitoria

What will you see pedaling through Vasco Navarro Greenway by bike?

On December 31, 1967 the “trenico”, as this railway was known, made its last trip. But now it is possible to travel its route by bicycle.

Doing the Greenway of the Vasco Navarro Railway by bicycle is a beautiful cycling experience recommended for anyone who wants to pedal slowly and at their own pace.

The tour is simple and suitable for anyone who wants to do something different. The only point of difficulty is in the second stage, after passing Maestu, due to the impossibility of circulating through the Laminoria tunnel. You must take a detour that includes going up a few kilometers by road and a track built in the mountain to avoid that section and reach the Greenway after that closed tunnel. This deviation includes slopes that may have to be overcome on foot. The rest of the route is away from the roads and surrounded by nature through cereal plantations, lush forests and charming towns. All seasoned with a set of stations, viaducts and tunnels that make up a unique railway heritage.

  • Sanctuary of Our Lady of Estíbaliz
  • Discover Vitoria, the capital of the Basque Country, Green Capital.
  • Monumental Complex of Antoñana
  • Izki Natural Park

Weekend option, 2 stages and 2 nights Estella - Vitoria

Kilometer 0 of the route is in the old Estella railway station, today a bus station.

Day 3: Maestu – Vitoria - Gasteiz31 km

Today we will arrive at the capital of the Basque Country, Vitoria. A beautiful and city city with multiple leisure and restaurant options.

To save it, the itinerary is diverted ascending to the port of Guereñu by road and then along a track with steep slopes and a descent that must be done with caution. This is the only section that presents a certain difficulty. Of course, it is a beautiful section in the middle of the native forest.

Except that difficulty, it is worth a stop at the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Estíbaliz, a jewel of Romanesque art from the 11th century.
