Muskiz is the westernmost town on the Basque coast and a gem to explore by bike. On the border between Euskadi and Cantabria and in the valley crossed by the Barbadun river to the beach of La Arena.


Experience Muskiz by bike


Rough terrain, but never extreme. Between the excellent beach of La Arena and Mont Mello, 626 meters, you can enjoy an impressive green landscape, so representative of the Basque Country.

Take the Los Montes de Hierro Green Lane! Leaving the municipality of Muskiz itself, we take advantage of 42 km of beautiful cycle paths to discover the mining past of the region, one of the jewels of which is El Pobal Ferrería with its promenade along the river.

A cycle path starts from the center of Muskiz and along the beach, the glorious industrial past of the Left Bank, to reach the heart of Bilbao and the Guggenheim Museum.

There are no great climbs or endless plains, but in return, the steep slopes of the low mountain range that made the Basque Country roads famous, on which all-time champions have cycled, are continuous.

The MTB-trails in Muskiz are endless. Benefit from a wide range of forest trails and old road trails, ideal for MTB!

The tranquility and low traffic of the Basque roads will allow you to enjoy your bike ride even more! Have you already selected your Cycling Friendly accommodation?
