Multimedia and/or description of the route

We will ride through the North of Navarre, by the Basque Pyrenees.
The first day, from Pamplona we headed to the Sierra of Urbasa, getting from there to La Sakana Valley.
The second day we surround the Sierra de Aralar from the South, and after passing through Leizaldea we go to the Baztan.
In the third stage - the Queen Stage - we will reach the mountains of Lower Navarre, in the middle of the Pyrenees and by the spectacular Port of Arnostegi we will enter again in Navarra.
In the South side of the Pyrenees BASOAK will down its intensity, and while we cross Villava, like in the Tour of 96, we will turn and pass in front of the house of the five-time Tour winner Miguel Indurain. Once in the old Iruña, if we want we can ride along the route of the San Fermín festival recalling the time trial team in the prologue of the Tour of Spain 2013.
The common denominator of the route will be the forest. That is why BASOAK, -forest- in the language that has been spoken in the area for hundreds of years.

The route begins. Profesional Pelotón taking a walk through Pamplona before "starting BASOAK".
 Euskal Itzulia 2017

In the village of Etxauri begins the port of the same name, 6.8 kilometers with a slope that remains almost unchanged between 6 and 7% during the whole ascent. The road ascends to the left of the walls of the image.

The walls of Etxauri Port controlling the passage of the peloton.
 Euskal Itzulia 2017

Port of Etxauri seen from El Cabezón de Etxauri.

 Grand Prix Indurain 2017

Alto de Eraul, Wind, Sun and Water.
 Grand Prix Indurain 2017

Oak of Eraul. This three was born when in Europe still do not knew America. For us it is the beginning of the descent.

Descending Eraul port to Abartzuza. In BASOAK we will have to upload it on this side.
 Grand Prix Indurain 2017

Scenes of professional cycling in Alto Eraul.
 Grand Prix Indurain 2017

Long segments of flatness in height by the Sierra de Urbasa.

Descent from the Port of Urbasa towards Alsasua.

The day is ending. We are above Alsasua, between the Llanada Alavesa and the Barranca Navarra.

Basoak3-Bosque lizarrusti

We started the second stage following part of the route of La Vuelta al País Vasco 2015. We entered Gipuzkoa by the Port of Lizarrusti (on this side a simple slope).

Basoak3

Alto de Lazkaomendi between Lazkao and Zaldibia. In the background the mountains of the Sierra de Aizkorri.

If we have chosen the PLUS option, we will have to tighten our teeth in the Gaintza Wall. The wall in question includes a very hard stretch of 1.6 km to 15.3%.
 Ordiziako Klasika 2015

Basoak3

During the first 50 kilometers we will cycle around the Sierra de Aralar by its north slope. In the center the unmistakable Txindoki.

Basoak3

The peloton of La Euskal Itzulia 2016 crowning the top of Usategieta between Leitza and Santesteban.

Third stage, first effort of the day on the gentle slopes of Izpegi Port.

The Baztán towns works as a bridge with the Pyrenean chain. Once crowned the top of Izpegi, the view opens to the North and shows the territory left to come, to pedal.

Spectacular landscapes descending the Port of Izpegi towards Baigorri.

Views from the Izpegi COL towards the Pyrenees.

Ascending Munhoa, an unknown port in the Basque Pyrenees above Baigorri. Hardness guaranteed by any of its "at least" 5 ascenses. -PLUS-

Pastoral escenary in the upper part of Munhoa. A port reserved for BASOAK PLUS options.

Hard fight in the 18 kilometers of ascent to the COL of Arnostegi by the "Route of Napoleón". If the "wall" (3kms to 15.3%, 11.5% and 14%) intimidates us, we can take the "slightly less harsh" alternative to climb by Arnegi-Ondarolle, stage 3 of the 4-day option of BASOAK.

High part of Arnostegi among shreds of fog, one of the best weather conditions to raise "cooled" the hard and prolonged slopes of this Pyrenean colossus.

And much better if a little later the fog stays down. Bucolic scenes in the 5 star territory of the Basque Pyrenees.

In the center, prehistoric settlement of Zerkupe, BASOAK scenario on the gentle slopes on the upper part of Arnostegi.

We are going to Orgambide.

Cultural recreation of cromlech in front of Errozate mountain.

Powerful Pyrenean landscape between the steps of Orgambide and Azpegi. In background, slopes of Artaburu and Errozate. Irati Extrem Territory.

Reconditioned remains of the former Orbaitzeta Weapons Factory. We are already on the southern slope.

Passed the Port of Lapitzea. Southern slope of the Pyrenean Navarre between Aribe and Espinal.

Espinal, typical village of the Pyrenean Navarre.
 Cicloturista La Indurain 2016

We are already heading towards Pamplona, ​​ascending the small Port of Mezkiritz.
 Cicloturista La Indurain 2016

Ascending the port of Erro, little more than a "tack".
 Cicloturista La Indurain 2016

Birthplace of the five-time champion of the Tour Miguel Indurain, a symbolic value added to the route.

Cuesta de Santo Domingo in the old town of Pamplona. Starting point of the San Fermín bull runners and tour of the opening match of La Vueta to Spain 2013. BASOAK users can cycle the street.
In the tab "Downloads and altimetrys" we added the track that starting from the bridge over the Arga includes the joint layout of the Encierro and Encierrillo.
