Gorbeia Natural Park

Upo mountain

This solitary peak, somewhat separated from the Gorbeia massif, is covered with leafy pine groves, although it offers good views over the Arratia valley, the Aramotz massif (belonging to the Urkiola Natural Park), and looking towards Gorbeia, the Itxina karstic massif stands out. The route can be completed in approximately one hour and a half.

We then leave from Upoko Makatza and take the gently rising track that runs round the area. After flanking a first hill, we will come across a small forest refuge, a pretty spot with different species of trees.

A few metres further ahead, when the track flattens out, we will turn down the steep slope. After its initial section, the track, which is grassy and covered with leaves, becomes gentler as it rises to the summit of Upo.
