Start your journey on Goierri’s viewpoints in the neighbourhood of Altzagarate, inside Altzaga. Admire the 15th century carving of the Virgin Mary inside Nuestra Señora de Altzagarate’s hermitage and, from this point, placing yourself in front of the monolith, you will be seeing an amazing view.
Leave Altzagarate and head to Zaldibia on your way to Gaintza, not taking A-1.
On your way up you will see a first shot of mount Txindoki! If you leave your car in Gaintza’s square, it might be a good plan to walk back just to enjoy those views more carefully.
From here, head to Lazkao’s exit, taking A-1. After one kilometre, take the roundabout to Lazkaomendi. The neighbourhood of Lazkaomendi shows a breathtaking view of Txindoki and Aralar natural park. Head down to Lazkao again and take the road to the next point, known as Goierri’s balcony: Olaberria.
Here you get views of both natural parks of Aizkorri-Aratz and Aralar. The monolith that indicates is located in one of the sides of San Juan Bautista’s church.
Next stop is Zerain. To get to this town, get back on A-1 towards Gasteiz, taking the exit Idiazabal-Segura. Leave your car in the square where the Ostatu is, and then enjoy the views in Segura, Idiazabal peaks, mounts Usurbe, Txindoki, Aizkorri… and enjoy the town itself: its ethnographic museum, the hydraulic sawmill, a craft, and all the landscape shaped by the mining industry.
Go back the same way and when you see Otatza cider house in Zerain, leave the car and walk 50 m towards Barbaris. You will reach a point from where you get a unique view of Segura, and its very well preserved medieval quarter. Crossing the town of Segura, get the path to Mutiloa. Crossing the town of Segura, get the path to Mutiloa and go up to the neighbourhood of Liernia.
Head to Gabiria, last stage of this route, following the signals at the exit of Liernia. In Gabiria you will find a small rural village located on a hill, all peace and quiet, offering a very nice view of the region.
