Thrilling nature

From the snow-capped peaks of the Pyrenees to the arid semi-desert of the Bardenas Reales, we encourage you to discover the rich nature of a region which has respected and conserved its natural environment. The variable climate of the Navarre region - surprising for a community as small as ours - has gifted us evergreen valleys such as the Roncal and Baztan, the beautiful, colourful and impressive Irati, Orgi and Quinto Real forests, and dizzying ravines sculpted by the passage of water, such as the Lumbier and Arbayún gorges.

You can also enjoy the peaceful reservoirs at Leurtza, the Irabia or Eugi reservoirs surrounded by forest, the active reservoir at Alloz and others, or the Pitillas and las Cañas lakes, themselves a refuge for bird life. Caves steeped in legend also await you, such as those at Zugarramurdi, as well as the caverns at Mendukilo and Urdazubi/Urdax which hide beautiful formations within.  Navarre is home to many protected areas, amongst which are three natural parks: the Bertiz Natural Park, the Urbasa-Andia Natural Park and the Bardenas Reales Natural Park.

If you love nature, you’re going to love this place.
