A loop route starting in Valverde
On this route, the terrain varies depending on the stretch, whether it is on road or track, and it goes from the centre to the western tip. The route leaves the capital city of El Hierro, Valverde, in the northeast of the island. It follows the same route as that taken every four years for the Bajada de la Virgen de los Reyes (Descent of the Virgin of Kings) – the most popular local festivity. It passes the slopes of El Julan, from El Golfo Valley down to the sea.
By bike to the best views
The track goes as far as La Dehesa in Sabinosa, where we find the Bascos viewpoint and from there we can see the Frontera Valley. The surrounding area is full of juniper trees, which have been twisted by the wind and have become a symbol of the island. Just when you make out Orchilla Lighthouse in the distance, you will have been cycling for 78 kilometres.
