You can start this route from the town of A Veiga, along the right-hand bank of the Xares river basin to the Prada dam. You can then return along the river’s other bank to Playa de los Franceses.
The landscape is dominated by the Prada reservoir. The village of Alberguería and the most fertile lands in the Xares river basin were flooded to create this reservoir in 1958. Currently, the marsh creates its own microclimate that affects the valley’s climate. The dam gives A Veiga a river beach that is perfectly equipped for summer use.
The route is flat and can be travelled on a mountain bike, with some duly marked alternative sections. What is difficult about the route is its length, but there are multiple alternatives that allow you to do it in several stages, through access by roads and tracks to the villages that surround the riverbank.
You can access the route from A Rúa or A Gudiña on the OU-533 to Alto do Covelo. Take the turning towards A Veiga.
