The Vía Verde del Plazaola is a route for walkers and cyclists for what was the old route of the train that joined Pamplona and San Sebastián between 1914 and 1953. It is characterized by a spectacular landscape, a route of uniform slopes and the large number of tunnels that are crossed. The one in Uitzi has a distance of 2,7 km and it is recommended to access with flashlights even though it is illuminated.
Route 14,7 Km. One way
-We recommend two sections to travel the Vía Verde by bike:
Bear in mind that you have to go first and then come back, and that it is always better to go up first with your strength intact than not having to do it on the way back.
Longer tunnels are illuminated, but we always recommend using a flashlight. Carry a good supply of water. In tunnels it rains, even sometimes in summer, due to seepage from the walls, so the floor is wet and getting muddy is inevitable.
