Special mention to the market in Ordizia!

Your registration includes a starter kit that you will receive once you arrive at Goierri. It holds your passport -you will need to stamp this in every accommodation you visit-, a t-shirt, and the map of the route with all the extra info and points of interest. Once you’re done, you will get an award for your effort and work accomplished: half a piece of Idiazabal cheese and a bottle of artisan cider!

During the week of GR-283 you’re not only doing sports, you will be part of the landscape and the atmosphere of a secret land: Goierri.

Each stage gives you several options to spend the night. You can choose between hotels, agrotourism -actual farmhouses where you can stay and share time with the family!- and hostels.
