What you'll do

The hike will begin from Izpegi mountain, which sits on the Spanish and French border. Trekking thru dense forest and open valley, encountering many livestock such as sheep, cows, and horses. As we hike along the Spanish Basque border, we gradually ascend Auza mountain, which sit´s at 1,306meters of altitude. The 360 degree views are amazing, offering views of many villages on both Spanish and French territory, along with views of hundred´s of kms of Spanish and French coastline. Once we are back at the original starting point, we will restore our energy and delight our tastebuds with refreshments and local cheese and pastry.
