Aizkorri-Aratz Natural Park

Aizkorri-Aratz Natural Park

The park is in a mountain area near the Aralar Range, which is one of the corridors linking the Pyrenees to the Cantabrian Mountains. Its highlights include the rock wall that extends between the mountains of Aloña and Aratz with the highest altitudes of the Basque Country, the peaks of Aitxuri (1,551 metres) and Aizkorri (1,544 metres).

In this hike you will have the possibility to climb the Aizkorri mountain which is considered the highest peak in the Basque Country. This trek is a great opportunity to admire the typical limestone rocky mountains from the area and it will give us the opportunity to see different geo formations like the San Adrian tunnel, a natural hole in the rock that used to be the pass between the coast and the kingdom of Castilla in the medieval times. Between beautiful formations and beech trees we will achieve the most popular sommet in the Basque Country. 

On the way down we will take advantage to visit the famous Urbia fields where during the summer the shepherds bring their flocks since hundreds of years ago so they can graze the fresh grass from the mountain.
