A Round thing: The Idiazábal cheese route
Idiazábal is a Basque hard cheese with a Protected Designation of Origin, made from the milk of the Latxa and Carranzana sheep breeds. Lovers of this spicy cheese will find a 97-kilometre circular route to its production and sales facilities.
The route crosses the Aralar Natural Park in Gipuzkoa and is divided into six stages. Between twelve and 23 kilometres long, it is easy to walk through. There is much to see: dolmens from the Stone Age, abandoned shepherd's huts in wild nature, medieval towns and the cheese museum in Idiazábal.
