Valle de Villaverde–Karrantza–Lanestosa


A steep circular route at the western end of Enkarterri. The route begins in the Valle de Villaverde (valley), a Cantabrian enclave in the heart of Enkarterri, to reach Karrantza after climbing the Alto de La Escrita.

Here, in the largest valley of Bizkaia, we will cycle under the karst massifs of the Parque Natural de Armañón until we reach Cantabria again. We leave behind the Cueva de Pozalagua (cave), known to hold the world record for eccentric stalactites.

After several kilometers in Cantabrian region, we return to Enkarterri via Lanestosa, a medieval village that seems sheltered from the passage of time. From here we will crown the Puerto de Ubal towards Karrantza and, after leaving the neighborhoods of Concha and Ambasaguas, we will take the Alto de La Escrita road back to return to our starting point.
