From Artieda, the route descends down a gentle slope to continue on further roads and tracks. After 10 kilometres along flat ground, it enters the village-fortress of Ruesta.

A sharp climb will take you to the town's camping ground. From there, the route begins a long, steep climb for eight hard kilometres (pilgrims should have enough water to cover this stage, as there are no water sources until the next town of Undués de Lerda.

The route enters Navarre along the Undués trail, a packed earth track that descends and crosses the narrow road of the Bardenas Canal, next to the Arbea farmyard. From there, a wide track takes you among cereal fields and hills dotted with kermes oaks. You can admire the Shrine of Nuestra Señora del Socorro atop a hill close by. To the south, the crowded medieval town of Sos del Rey Católico is clearly visible.

Under a barren crag, the route leaves the main track to continue along a narrower one on irrigated land. The numerous buildings in assorted styles announce the proximity of Sangüesa, which we enter on a paved road that passes by the Cross of San Lázaro. We cross Sangüesa and leave over the iron bridge crossing the Aragon river
