Nature and trekking

A trip to Gipuzkoa is in itself a chance to escape daily routine; and a visit to some of our nature areas takes you even further from the humdrum, into the beauty, intimacy and inspiration of our fabulous natural surroundings. It is an escape within an escape.

These are areas that are open 24 hours a day — such as Aizkorri-Aratz, Aralar, The Aia Crags, Pagoeta and the Leitzaran valley. And Gipuzkoa's rugged terrain makes it ideal for hikers too. As well as the innumerable signposted trails criss-crossing the mountain ranges of Aralar and Aizkorri and the paths leading up to the mountain summits, Gipuzkoa also has another complex network of long-distance trails. These are the so-called "GRs", which signal more ambitious routes. You can walk one section of any of the routes or take on a whole GR over a period of several days.
