Autumn may be the best season to visit Irati, when the red, brown and green colors mix together in a incredible collage, but any other season is good as well. Beautiful.

If you are into great sightseeing whike hiking this place is a must during fall. You will find yourself in the middle of one of the nicest forrest in Europe where you can hike for our in well marked tracks. A must in the area to enjoy all the year and go even with kids (it's very easy).

We went to Irati Forst in late October for a family trip. We did some hikes in the area which has an amazing scenery around. You must go off tracks a bit to avoid the most crowded places but when you do the place is just magical. Very reccomendable to go in autumn as the colors between trees are amazing,... More

A breathtaking scenery, amazing views to the dam in the middle of the forest. Lovely walk, you can choose either a 4km walk or 10km walk around the dam and forest. Easy access and parking to start warming up for a beautiful walk. Recommended for BTT! Not very far from Pamplona, around 1hr30min drive.

Lovely drive through the mountains to this national park which (in November) featured a spectacular array of colours as the leaves were falling. It was still not very cold up there and the park was almost empty, making for a very peaceful environment. There was a whole range of walks available and easily found - including an easy ramble for... More

One of the delights of getting to this valley is the joinery. We drove from olive past soaring mountains, up to high mountain meadows and saw wonderful sweeps of clouds. Passing by small mountain villages like Orchagivia that are stunning. When you arrive that the selva there are information kiosks and guides to help you. Don't forget to pay for... More
