– Selva Irati – Bardenas reales – Tudela – Ochagavía – Castillo de olite
Autumn is coming, and Selva Irati turns into a magical place, as if you were in a fairy tale.
Many call it the Magic Forest of the Pyrenees because of its magical colors: in summer it becomes green, in winter it turns to snow white, and in autumn when the leaves turn dyed ocher and gold it looks like a red carpet.
The photos look like a mysterious painting, thanks to the play of the light and the mist that crosses the whole forest.
Selva Irati is the second largest beech forest in Europe with its more than 17,000 hectares of virgin forest in the Navarre Pyrenees, with rivers, waterfalls, caves, gorges, viewpoints, and the most spectacular suspension bridges you have ever seen in your life.
The valleys of Aezkoa and Salazar, where there are three natural reserves, the integral reserve of Lizardoia, the natural reserve of Mendilatz and Truistibartea.
During our trip we make two hiking routes in SALAZAR VALLEY and AEZKOA VALLEY.
Tudela Bardenas Reales
Have you ever imagined yourself in Western movies or walking on Planet Mars? Because this place is like being in a real Western movie or being on the Planet Mars.
It is not a coincidence that Las Bardenas Reales is declared a Biosphere Reserve by the UNESCO.
You can visit it by bus or take a 4×4 or Segway route (optional activities).
The Salazar valley is special mixture of architecture, art, nature, history and cultures, traditions, gastronomy.
Beautiful villages such as Escaroz, Esparza de Salazar, Ochagavia can be found along the river Salazar, Urbeltza and Urtxuria, natural areas such as the peak of Orhi, 2000 meters.
12,000 hectares of forest with the Irati forest, hidden caves, dolmens and many more are part of the hallmarks of this valley that gives home to nine villages. Among them is the highest of Navarra and the balcony of Aezkoa.
This is like a fantasy village in the Region of Navarra, in the Pyrenees, and one of the most beautiful villages in Spain. This village is a must see while visiting Selva Irati.
If you are a fan of photography or you are an instagram influencer, you cannot miss this village! We recommend to take photos in the afternoon because the village is even more beautiful in the afternoon lights.
Pamplona is the capital of the Region Navarra, which was a medieval city that was formed by three burghs: the Navarrería, San Cernin and the town of San Nicolás. Today with four million square meters of parks and gardens make it one of the largest “green cities” in Europe. Pamplona is a quiet city with emblematic streets marked by the Sanfermines and the Camino de Santiago.
We will sleep 2 nights in a 3* hotel in this beautiful city.
