Monte Urregarai

Also known as Santa Eufemia (Saint Euphemia), it is itself a surprising mountain. Those who enjoy walking can reach it either from Aulesti or from any of the surrounding villages on foot. From the Hermitage at the summit, one can take in the magnificent scenery: the Urdaibai Biosphere, the coast of Bizkaia and Gipuzkoa, the mountains surrounding Durango, as well as the tallest mountains in Gipuzkoa. Breathtakingly indescribable: it is truly worth climbing for the view.

Should one wish to take a shorter route, it is possible to drive right up to Santa Eufemia field and from there take an easy 10-15 minute walk to the summit.

Remember too that the Atxagarai shelter is located in this field. Well managed by the local council, it is an ideal place to spend the day with your family or friends.

Lea Walking Path

Lea ibilbidea

This wonderful route starts in Munitibar and ends in Mendexa. The banks of the Lea River are a perfect place to enjoy nature and re-energise, leaving behind the day-to-day headaches. The path traverses the village of Aulesti for several kilometres where there are numerous access points, it is certainly an attractive and relaxing route to either walk or cycle.

Next to Lea walking path, between Zetokiz and the park, there is an area where nature and art come together: Aisureta gunea. There we can find sculptures by the Basque artist, Mikel Lertxundi: air, fire, and water are the main protagonists here.


Aulesti is surrounded by such mountains as Illunzar, Bedartzandi or Motrollo. It’s the right place for lovers of trekking and nature alike. If you like mountain biking, you won’t be at all disappointed with the plentiful routes available!
