Puerto de Izpegi
Hiking Across Borders with Pottok PoniesBeginning from the car park at Puerto de Izpegi, which sits right on the border between France and Spain, the Frontier Views Walk outlined in Lonely Planet's Hiking in Spain book certainly lives up to its name. This 10.5 km hike wanders between open fern covered hillsides, beech forests, and high up to wind swept ridges - all the while crossing back and forth between the two countries. One of the most magical moments from our trip to Northern Spain took place on this hike - that kind of moment that I always thought only existed in other people's photographs or the Planet Earth series.
It doesn't get much better than hanging out alone, high on windswept ridge, with grazing Pottok ponies, and views of both France and Spain.
