Gran ruta GR-99

Also known as the "Ebro Nature Trail", it runs through the entire Ebro to its mouth in Tarragona. On its way it crosses the provinces of Cantabria, Burgos, Álava, La Rioja, Navarra, Zaragoza and Tarragona.


Gran ruta GR-38

This route aims to make known to everyone who loves nature and our territory, the trails that from time immemorial and for millennia served to put people from different lands in contact.

For centuries, they were the only communication infrastructure between merchants and muleteers, becoming widely used routes that promoted those places through which they passed, favoring trade to flourish, giving rise to towns and villages.

Along its 100-kilometer route, spread over 8 stages, this route shows the traveler a whole climatic gradient and a mosaic of landscapes as in few places in the Basque Country can be found.

This trail, GR-38, wants to claim this character of our land, open to all peoples and people, for the knowledge of history with the maintenance of these routes through which for centuries there has been a continuous exchange of different cultures.

This GR-38 trail begins in the Alava town of Oyón and is divided into eight stages:

  • 1st stage: Oyón -Laguardia
  • 2nd stage: Laguardia - Lagrán
  • 3rd stage: Lagrán - Albaina
  • 4th stage: Albaina - Oquina
  • 5th stage: Oquina - Estibaliz
  • 6th stage: Estibaliz - Mendibil
  • 7th stage: Mendibil - Legutiano
  • 8th stage: Legutiano - Otxandio

The path is perfectly signposted, through the characteristic symbology of these trails, shown in the image.


Ruta de Las Lagunas

This route allows us to visit the Protected Biotope of the Laguardia Complex, protected worldwide, as it is included in the List of Wetlands of International Importance defined by the RAMSAR Convention. The Complex consists of 4 wetlands, the first of which, the Prao de la Paúl corresponds to a raft and the remaining 3, Carralogroño, Musco and Carravalseca, are seasonal natural lagoons. These wetlands are home to important biodiversity, especially migratory birds, which use the lagoons as a resting place.

Using two long-distance itineraries, such as the GR 38 Wine and Fish Route, and the GR 120 Ignatian Way, we will have the opportunity to discover these lagoons through several loops of different lengths.

Camino Ignaciano

After a week walking among beech, oak and wheat fields, after having left the tower-house where Ignacio was born, in Loyola, at dusk you reach a small town, still in Navarra, which in Ignacio's time was known as La poblacion Marañón, for being at the foot of a mountain where the castle of Marañón stood. That it was an important route and crossroads is proclaimed by a building that was an old pilgrims' hospital and that still retains the Santiago signs: the pumpkin, the staff, the cane. When we get up at dawn the view is lost in the distance entangled in the heights of the Sierra de la Demanda and Soria mountains. Closer to our feet, cereal fields that in the troughs and valleys become small vineyards that descend the mountain: they are the fertile lands of Rioja. Meano, also known as La Aldea, is the last town in Navarra that we crossed before arriving, after walking along the first vineyards, to Kripán, the first town in Rioja Alavesa that we came across. We will cover a little more than twenty kilometers crossing lands and villages of Rioja Alavesa, accompanied on all the way by the vineyards of Kripan, Elvillar, Laguardia and Lapuebla de Labarca. The path is in clear descent, as we start at seven hundred meters of altitude and arrive at the Ebro riverbank, in Lapuebla, located at 429 meters of altitude.
