Circular route leaving and arriving in Ortuella, next to the soccer field and the train station. The itinerary explores the mining bowels of Biscay and reveals the places formed by the exploitation of the subsoil.
After starting in the El Kadegal district, we will continue to the Orkonera Greenway, which follows the route of the former Franco-Belgian mining railway. As we gain altitude, we will reach the leisure area of Matamoros and then the lakes of La Arboleda, the perfect spot to take a break or have a hamaiketako in the center of La Arboleda.
Then, we'll surround the Meaztegi Golf Course with a soft gravel course with magnificent views of Peñas Negras and the Global Mining Complex (and even the Cantabrian Sea). After crossing the district of Triano, we will reach Orkonera to finish the route at the same starting point.
