From Urkiola, Durango is just a stone’s throw away, with its large Gothic church and an Old Town set in the course of the Ibaizabal (Fronton, Shopping and Restaurants).

At the Munitibar crossroads, take the road towards Mendata. Halfway there is a viewpoint called Balcón de Bizkaia: a must-stop, from there you can see several valleys and the sea in the distance.

Through Mendata we enjoy the road to Gernika and then to Gautegiz-Arteaga without stopping until we reach Kanalape beach. Listen to the sea breeze and stare at the Urdaibai Biosphere Reserve.
