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 stage Queen- We reach the mountains of Baja Navarre, already in the Pyrenees and by the massif of the Arbailles we will reach the Selva de Irati.
The last day for the spectacular Port of Arnostegi we will enter again to Navarre until the old Iruñea. 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.

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.

Sakana Valley, Navarra, beginning of the second stage of BASOAK.

The vision of the mountain of Beriain will be a constant in our passage for La Sakana.

We finish La Sakana and prepare for Zuazarrate, the first port of the day. Las 2 hermanas of Irurtzun take over the landscape.

We arrived in Astiz, pure bucolism between Lekunberri and the Sakana Valley by the Alto de Zuazarrate.

We cross the Larraun in Lekunberri and passing through Uitzi and Leitza we will look for the Baztan.

Basoak3-Bosque lizarrusti

If we chose the PLUS option, 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).

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.

Ascending Ausky by Bastida, the ascend by which it was promoted in La Vuelta a España 2016. If it is hot we recommend the option of ascent by Behorlegi that is for which "officially" ascends BASOAK.

In the upper area of the same port as the previous photo.

The "Duel" of the Vuelta a España 2016 on the last ramps of Inharpu.
 Vuelta a España 2016

 Queen Stage Vuelta a España 2016

Ridge between Ahusky and Bagargi. On clean days the view extends on the right to the Gulf of Bizkaia and on the left towards the high peaks of the Pyrenees. Without any doubt, one of the best sections of cycling in the whole Pyrenees. The peloton of La Vuelta España 2016 is marching towards the Central Pyrenees. We will continue along the Cordillera road to look for Bagargi and Casas de Irati.
 Vuelta a España 2016

"Negotiating" the crest towards Bagargi, the Arbailles massif is left behind.

We continue looking for Bagargi.

Participants of the Irati Extrem 2013 in Irati-Cize. At this point begins our last climb of the day to the small Port (by this side) of Burdinkurutzeta.

COL de Burdinkurutzeta. In the background the massif of the Arbailles through which we have spent throughout the day. There is only one perfect descent to Lecumberry left.

Last stage, hard fight in the ascent to COL of Arnostegi by Ondarolle. Better to bring good "paella" in the back wheel.

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.
