The Irati Forest covers 17,300 h (62,000 ks) located, for the most part, to the north of Navarre (Spain) in the Pyrenees. The main accesses are by Orbaiceta (Valley of Aézcoa) on the west, and by by Ochagavía (Valley of Salazar) on the east. It is the largest forest mass in Navarre and one of the largest and best preserved beech and fir forests in Europe. Located in a scarcely populated area, it has kept a wild and mysterious aspect, foddered by many local legends.  The access route was only built in 1964.

Earlier this week I visited the Irati forest together with my hiking group. Very impressive!!!
