The Irati Forest

Tourist lodging in Irati

An immense green spot of about 17,000 hectares that remains in an almost virgin state. Located in the eastern Pyrenees of Navarre and surrounded by mountains, it offers endless routes and activities. Discover the villages of Navarra, mountains, rivers, myths and legends, its fauna, its gastronomy… On foot, by bicycle or by car. The valley hides places not to be missed such as the Arpea Cave, the old munitions factory, the route of the hórreos, the Urkulu tower, the Irabia reservoir or its many viewpoints of nature.

The Navarrese Pyrenees is located in a strategic place for the observation of bird migration in Europe, take your binoculars and be amazed by the number of birds in the area.

The Irati Forest is the second largest and best preserved beech-fir forest in Europe, after the Black Forest in Germany.

Contrasts of reds, yellows, oranges, ochres, greens, purples... accompanied by sounds such as the falling of the leaves and the rutting: a sensory spectacle caused by the bellows emitted by the male deer during the rut at dusk.
