Mondarrain et Artzamendi

A very beautiful and mountainous route, this itinerary is for experienced hikers. The length of this hike allows you to enjoy beautiful viewpoints from the summits of the Mondarrain and the Artzamendi. There will be plenty to discover, particularly the betizu, the small cows of the Basque Country, or the pottok, manex and blondes of Aquitaine. In addition to these domestic animals, there is a whole range of local fauna and flora to discover on this route. Ideally placed halfway along the route, the Esteben Borda restaurant offers a good meal before starting the second climb of the day. After the Artzamendi, the descent into a wild valley will delight the hiker before finishing the loop that leads to the Pas de Roland. For the athletic one, this route can be considered a trail.
