Irati desde Pikatua Camping Murkuzuria

The Irati Forest is the second largest and best preserved beech and fir forest in Europe, an immense green mantle of some 17,000 hectares that is still in an almost unspoiled state. Get lost in its vastness by taking its signposted paths on foot or by bicycle. We’ll be happy to recommend to you our favourite paths.
