With a drop of about 5,000 meters in 4 stages, the average duration of each day is about 6 hours. Contrary to what may seem, it is not an exclusive route for experts, but for anyone with a medium state of form. This route covers the kingdom of the Karst: Larra crossing this area of the western Pyrenees: Belagua, Linza, Lescun, Bearn and Zuberoa.
On this tour we will have the opportunity to ascend to the most important summits of the place: Petrechema, Table of the Three Kings, Anie, Lakora, Txamantxoia.
The Route of the Swallows owes its name to the migratory movement of thousands of salacencas, roncalesas, and ansotanas women who were forced to cross the Pyrenees to look for a job in Mauleón (Pyrénées Atlantiques) and thus have enough money to support their families. Seeing how this movement was growing and more and more women were encouraged to cross the Pyrenees in search of a better future, the inhabitants of this region decided to nickname these women as "the swallows".
And this is how the route that these women took took the same name. Also, this route apart from being well known for this migratory movement, is a true natural and scenic spectacle which will not disappoint us.
Our mountain guide, great connoisseur of this area, will make this unique Pyrenean crossing accessible to those who want to explore and discover its secrets. The mountain refuges in which we will sleep, consist of half board and picnic services and will allow us a good rest for the nights of our adventure.
