- Second Section: Coming from the Navarrese plane you enter La Rioja (400-500 m), the most famous Spanish wine region, you will cross through these vineyards over gentle hills.
- Third Section: Climbing up to Montes de Oca, you enter La Meseta, the Spanish central plateau (800-900 m) and walk along flat lands full of cereal fields in a hard climate, from very hot to very cold, sometimes in just one day.
- Fourth Section: You climb to Montes de León (over 1,500 m) the entrance of El Bierzo region (500-600 m) a broad valley surrounded by high mountains, walk across quite a flat terrain, including vineyards and rolling hills.
