Goikola de Betelu path Activities and Nature

NA-1300, 31890 Betelu, Navarra

The Goikola path is a pleasant walk that runs parallel to the Araxes river. It is just 700 m one way, and is wholly accessible, even by wheelchairs and prams. It is also known as the Royal Road, since it was frequented by the illustrious guests of the old Betelu spa, including King Alfonso XII himself.

The trail starts from the Betelu water bottling plant, where the old spa used to be, and goes up to the ruins of the Goikola metalworks, an old copper foundry. Halfway there is the Kalderola dam, a bathing area for residents on hot summer days.

In addition, there are information panels about the beautiful landscape and its history along the walk.

 

 

Access: The route starts from the town of Betelu. A signpost next to the bridge over the Araxes river marks the beginning of the path.
