Northern Route stage 08: Portugalete (Euskadi) - El Haya de Ontón (Cantabria)


Description

Distance:
20,00 km

Mode of transport
  • Bicycle

  • Walking

Main difficulties
From Portugalete to the Playa de la Arena beach, cyclists can enjoy 11 kilometres without roads. Once past the beach, pilgrims will come to a flight of steps in Pobeña. It is well worth carrying the bike up, both for the walk and for the views, but there is a considerable difference in level, and numerous steps. The alternative is to take the road which links Pobeña with Covarón and to rejoin the road here and continue on to Ontón.
