    "Q" for Tourism Quality, a mark that represents quality in Spain’s tourism sector.


Where the sun doesn't shine

The park is situated in the Beriz-Arana Valley, to the north of Navarre. It preserves extensive forests of beech and oak.

The climate, warm and with lots of rain, and the absence of ice have been the best allies for the preservation of this immense Navarre forest. This is a closed mass of beech and oak which covers virtually all of the Park's 2,040 hectares. The fauna is also an important element of the park. The roe deer, deer and wild boar, typical of the area, are very difficult to see. But it is relatively easy to see squirrels and, on quieter days, to hear the woodpecker.
