includes Option PLUS


FUENTES del VINO Aralar-Urbión, the base option.
Starting the route in Arbizu or Laguardia.

From the Aralar Range FUENTES del VINO goes to the South, through Navarra’s lands first and La Rioja later, until reaching the Urbión clump in the province of Soria. The return is again through the vineyards of La Rioja and the lonely roads of the Montaña Alavesa.

When the heat is oppressive or if we just want to have more time for sightseeing on foot, we can reduce the length of the route welcoming what we have come to call "+30ºC Option". The quality of the route will be slightly reduced, but the quality of the day will be significantly increased.

Although all the information is written performing the route clockwise, it is perfectly possible to do in the opposite direction without losing an iota of interest. Usually the sense of the route is determined by the need to avoid making night at Laguardia on Friday or Saturday. This is so because of the difficulty of booking accommodation in those days as a result of the tourist pressure supported by the village.

Cuenca de Pamplona, almost in profile and the Pyrenees by closing the set and now yes, full Tierra Estella... and Logroño on the Ebro basin before climbing on the Iberian mountain range and touching Soria.
