History and symbols of the Basque country

The Basque Country (or Euskal Herria) is a land of traditions that spans over 20.000 km². The French Basque Country (Labourd, Basse-Navarre and Soule) represents 15% of the total area of the Basque territory but is full of vertical and mythical climbs.
In the French Basque Country, the mountain largely dominates the landscapes with the Pyrenees at its center forming the natural border between France and Spain. From deep valleys to high mountain pastures, the geography is extremely demanding, even for climbers.
The numerous villages with typical architecture form human oases in the heart of a wild region dominated by forests, woods, meadows and a very varied climate with abundant rains.

The course mainly consists of asphalt roads. A few short gravel portions will give you a hard time.
