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.
The list will be at least spectacular...
We start from Aralar and we begin: Sierra de Andia, Santuario de Codes, Sierra de Cameros Viejo, Macizo de Urbión, Sierra de Cameros Nuevo, Sierra de Cantabria, Parque natural de Izki, Sierra de Urbasa... and already finishing, Aralar again.
Altos de Goñi, sierra and cereal
We have named the high, the FUENTES. At the intervals remained the valleys and plains, the VINO. (wine) places.
Señorío de Otazu under El Cabezón de Etxauri, first major encounter with the vineyards
First was the Sakana valley (Navarre) which was sinking while we were ascending Lizarraga’s port, later on a bit of Tierra Estella... altos de Goñi... 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.
Breathtaking Canyon del Río Leza, enter territory Cameros
In the way back Monasterios de Suso and Yuso in San Millan de la Cogolla, vineyards and more vineyards in basin of La Rioja, Montaña Alavesa in full and again Tierra Estella and Barranca Navarra.
Monasterio de Yuso -San Millán de la Cogolla- World Heritage site
In short: A quite overwhelming and largely unknown geography, almost always solitary roads, ports without impossible percentages and a territory both cultural and historically boundless.
La Muela de San Román, Montaña Alavesa
This is FUENTES del VINO, an invitation.
