Bicicleta de carretera. Camino de Santiago 2: Pamplona-Viana

Pilgrim's Way to Santiago



A long route with uneven terrain which runs parallel to the dual carriageway linking Pamplona and Logroño (A-12). The route, which runs alongside the French Path, passes through the regions of Pamplona and Tierra Estella.

From Pamplona, you leave in the direction of Puente la Reina along the NA-1110, which has a wide, hard shoulder and good surface. The signs of the Way also indicate the route to follow. Thus, you only have to be aware of the traffic at the entrances or exits of the A-12 dual carriageway and choose the correct path at the numerous roundabouts.

After passing through Zizur Mayor and Astráin, you reach the first difficulty: the Perdón Mountain Pass. Between Puente la Reina and Estella-Lizarra, the terrain is very tough. Although it softens between the capital of the Ega and Los Arcos, it becomes tough again in the final section, with long upward slopes - particularly near Torres del Río.

Una ruta larga y con un perfil accidentado, que discurre en paralelo a la autovía que une Pamplona y Logroño (A-12). El recorrido, contiguo al Camino Francés, atraviesa las merindades de Pamplona y Tierra Estella.

De Pamplona se sale en dirección a Puente la Reina por la NA-1110, que tiene un arcén ancho y buen firme. Las señales del Camino, además, indican el recorrido a seguir. Así, sólo hay que estar pendiente del tráfico en las entradas o salidas de la autovía A-12 y elegir bien el camino en las numerosas rotondas.

Tras atravesar Zizur Mayor y Astráin, se llega a la primera dificultad: el puerto del Perdón. Entre Puente la Reina y Estella-Lizarra el terreno se vuelve rompepiernas. Aunque suaviza entre la capital del Ega y Los Arcos vuelve a endurecerse en el tramo final con repechos largos, sobre todo en las cercanías de Torres del Río.
