Bidasoa Greenway

At Go Local we have decided to invest in the bike to enjoy tourism. Actually, in our blog we have talked several times about using it to discover our city’s shore and the art pieces it holds, cross a tunnel like no other in Europe or follow the Urumea river to explore the southend of San Sebastian. Today, our suggestion will take you a little bit further away, from Irun to Navarre. To the frontier. It is time to talk about the Bidasoa’s Green Road.

This 39 km road connects Behobia (Irun) with Legasa in Navarre, and it is located above the old train tracks that connected Irun with Elizondo (the village that also appears The Baztan Trilogy of San Sebastian’s writer Dolores Redondo) known as “Tren Txikito”. It goes alongside the beautiful Bidasoa riverside, surrounded by green mountains that are filled with history, as this where lands populated by smugglers and constant conflicts with France. 

The best thing? That in addition to the beautiful views, this is a super easy route. Because of this, it is a great plan to do alongside your family.
