Vasco-Navarro Railway Greenway
Guide developed with the sponsorship of

Vasco-Navarro Railway Greenway


The Vasco-Navarro Railway Greenway revisits the trail of that much loved railway which used to run between Bergara and Estella, passing through Vitoria/Gasteiz. We have inherited from this railway (affectionately known as “El Trenico” (The Little Train) a route full of surprises, which passes through the rural districts of Llanada Alavesa, Montaña Alavesa, and Tierra Estella in the province of Álava and Navarra.  

The rail bed has become a long and attractive trail for walkers and cyclists, taking us through changing landscapes of great natural beauty. Along the route we will pass by cereal fields and mountains, rivers and gorges, leafy woods, and charming towns and villages. The route is sprinkled with stations, viaducts and tunnels forming part of a fascinating piece of railway heritage.

The greenway is divided into various sections due to its length, its passage through Vitoria, the long, impassable Laminoria tunnel, and the fact that some of the former railway route has been taken over by the road to Estella/Lizarra. The starting point is the monumental city of Vitoria/Gasteiz.

Because of its length, the fact that it passes through the city of Vitoria-Gasteiz, and the existence of the long impassable Laminoria tunnel, the proposed route is divided into different sections

ATTENTION!: Acedo Tunnel without temporary lighting. Don't forget to bring a flashlight or frontal.
