Born from a large project of green spaces in Bilbao, since its remodelling in the 90s, the ‘Gran Recorrido Bilbao’ (Bilbao Grand Tour), commonly known as the ‘GR Bilbao’, is one of the main attractions for lovers of sport and fresh air. This is a 74-kilometre ring around the city of Bilbao, which takes you through al these green spaces. Of course, covering all 74 kilometres on foot or bicycle would be a little excessive, so it is more common to devise different, more feasible routes, in order to take in the surrounding mountains and see the city from a different point of view. The route is dotted with lookout points, rest areas, and entrances and exits to the urban centres, making it suitable for any visitor. There are ten possible stretches, which allow you to explore the city. We recommend the routes between Eliptica Square and Via Vieja de Lezama, Begona Basilica and Atxeta Path, and Europe Park and Santa Marina. The most popular mode of transport is a bicycle, which you can rent at several stops on the routes.
