The Roncal Valley is a different place from the rest of the Navarra community. Its inhabitants have a unique culture and an identity of their own. In this valley we will find all kinds of activities at any time of the year.
The Irati Forest (Iratiko Oihana in Basque) is a forest distributed between the north of Navarra (Spain) and the Atlantic Pyrenees.
The Irati Forest is known for being the second largest beech-fir forest in Europe (only surpassed by the Black Forest of Germany), with 17,179 ha.
In 2015, the discovery of a carnivorous plant, Drosera Rotundifolia and Eriophorum Angustifolium, a type of woolly bulrush, earned the Irati Forest inclusion in a protection program at European level.

The Quesillo del Roncal
The Roncal Valley, cradle of the cheese to which it gives its name, is one of the few landscapes that can still offer the traveler the beauty of intact nature. In this Pyrenean valley of Navarra grazing has always existed.
Already in the Middle Ages, with the arrival of the first snows, a ritual began that is still maintained today: transhumance, at which time the sheep go down to the warm lands of the Bardenas Reales in search of pasture for the winter.
