Cross-border domain between the Spanish Navarre and the French Labourd, the country of Xareta joins the villages of Zugarramurdi and Urdax 

on one side of the border, and further north, Sare and Aïnhoa, ranked among the "Most Beautiful Villages of France". 



This splendid territory with rugged topography, dense vegetation,

and confusing trails naturally encouraged "night work" or smuggling.


Itinerary suggested:

Climb to the Col des Trois Croix, mount Erebi for a magnificent viewpoint

then descent to the village of Aïnhoa. 

Positive elevation gain of 400m is about 1h30 climb.


Visit the village of Aïnhoa (about 30 minutes) before returning to Biarritz
