Description

Very physically demanding route as it is the longest signposted one at the Mountain Bike Centre. Leaving Vielha, it heads along tracks to Vilac, Aubèrt and Arròs. From here, take the footpath towards the Varradòs valley and climb
all the way up to Varradòs mountain pass, at 2000 m above sea level. The descent is through the Unhola valley to the village of Bagergue. From here to the end of the itinerary, the villages of Nuevo Arán are linked by trails with some fairly technical stretches. Pay close attention at the start and end of the route, as the tracks change continuously. Although it is well signposted, it’s not a bad idea to take your GPS to avoid getting lost along the way.

Enjoy the mountain scenery offered by the Varradòs pass and leave sightseeing in the many villages along the route for another day. You can stop for refreshments at any of the villages, such as Bagergue, Unha, Gessa, Arties or Garòs.
