Ciclistas en la vía verde del Plazaola The Plazaola Green Route has reclaimed several kilometres of the railway line used by the first train to connect Pamplona with San Sebastian, which ran between 1914 and 1953. The local Tourist Information Office is to be found in the renovated station of Lekunberri, a town situated 34 kilometres north of Pamplona.

Do not forget to visit the little carriage that, from the platform, will transport you to the golden age of the Plazaola, through beautifully written texts in the Spanish and Basque languages.

From the station, now that the 2,680-metre-long tunnel at Uitzi has been reformed, you can make the 42-kilometre trip from Lekunberri con Andoain (Gipuzkoa) without any interruptions, via Leitza and its 14 small tunnels (also reformed).

The Green Way can be travelled on foot, by bicycle or on horseback, with gentle slopes and a landscape as green as it is varied.
