Autumn is definitely a magical season in our forests. This magic remained reflected in a bountiful mythology with an endless beings and stories. Lamia, Mari, Basajaun or Olentzero are only some of the most known and Zugarramurdi coves or Irati forest are some of their habitual abode or spots where their rituals take place.


With this route network we want to transmit the magic that our forests irradiate in autumn.

The best season for maximum enjoyment of this holiday is from September to November. Is in this period when we would have the occasion to appreciate the magical colours in our forests. Anyway, most of this routes can be ridden during the whole year and our quality and flexibility commitment allows us to suit this holiday with your requirements and desires.


This season also offers the occasion to taste unique gastronomical products. Seasonal vegetables and bush-meat become important in our traditional diet.

Even though the riding area of this route network covers the whole Basque Country, we have defined a main riding zone to minimize the transfer time to the routes from our base camp in Hondarribia.

At the main zone the transfer time takes from 5 to 45 minutes.

For the rest of the routes the average transfer time lasts between 60 and 90 minutes.

Before every route we do a little meeting to suit as much as possible the planning to the requirements and desires of the group. When we work with riders from the same group we are able to suit the routes 100% to your requirements.


We propose to do two excursions for week out of the main riding zone. Anyway, we are conscious that some people don’t want to do this kind of excursions because of the transfer time and we always propose other alternatives. Moreover, we let you choose the days that you want to rest or use to do alternative plans.

We meet at around nine in the morning and after a little briefing we start the day. We try to end the morning route at one after midday near from a typical bar or restaurant, where, if you want, we can have lunch.


At the end of the morning route we do a break to have lunch. We also do a meeting where we ask you for valuation of the route and we decide the planning for the afternoon.


After having lunch, you would have the opportunity to do another route or to continue with the morning route. After finishing the route, we will return to our base camp in Hondarribia. In a final meeting of few minutes we will detail the plan for the next day.


The excursions out from the main riding zone take all day long. In these excursions we will visit interesting places of the Basque Country where all day is needed to offset the transfer time (between 40 and 90 minutes).
