Durango is situated only 8 km away from Urkiola Natural Park, an area of outstanding natural beauty and of great geographical importance which invites us to get close to Nature and experience new sensations.
We suggest a series of routes, on foot or mountain bike, that will bring you in close contact with the marvellous landscapes and let you enjoy new experiences coming into direct contact with Nature.
Some of the routes, specially the mountain bike routes, are known for their difficulty (mud, potholes..), which is an added attraction for the most dedicated followers of this sport.
There are many trails recommended by the Park: those routes signposted GR or PR, those of a didactic character, those specific to the Park. These are fully explained in leaflets available from Toki Alai, which is the Interpretative Centre of the Park.
Remarkable GR 38 and GR 229
The Mountain Hostel is situated in Landaederra, at the foot of Mugarra mountain. It's a good place for mountaineers, those who love mountain biking or simply to have a barbecue with friends.
