Roads & TrafficThe surface is in very good condition.
This is the busier side of the climb and there can be some traffic at weekends, but it is generally not enough to spoil the enjoyment of the ride.
Lizarraga is an enjoyable cycling climb in the Navarra region of Northern Spain. It climbs into the Urbasa Natural Park and the numerous hairpins offer fine views across to the Sierra de Andía Mountains. This is the classic side of the climb, with the southern face being much more rolling with several plateaus. However, it is nice to include both sides in a longer route - particularly if you get the opportunity to stay in the delightful nearby town of Estella-Lizarra.
This is the least scenic of the two sides and also the busier with traffic. However, the long plateau in the centre of the climb is enjoyable.
Lizarraga is open throughout the year. Short term closures due to snow are possible in the winter, but are not especially common.
Other sidesLizarraga can also be climbed from the north, beginning close to the town of Lizarraga.
