Description

Do you want to explore one of the most beautiful parts of Spain? Join me on this trekking expedition in the Irati Jungle in Navarra.

The Irati jungle in the Pyrenees, is in reality an enchanting forest, so thick it paints green everything it touches. It’s the second biggest beech and fir mountain forest in Europe. And it extends over 17,000 of almost virgin hectares.

There are several magnificent mountains that surround the Irati Jungle. Some of the most prominent ones are the Orzanzurieta and Roncesvalles to the west, and the Orhi to the east. And to the south, stands the Abodi mountain range. 

The efforts to preserve the Irati Jungle, have turned it into an incredibly protected area, restoring all its natural beauty. Trekking through it is a marvellous experience you simply can’t miss.

Also, on top of the beech and fir trees there are many other fascinating species that call this place their home. For instance in 2015 there was a carnivorous plant discovered here! The Drosera Rotundifolia has granted this place an extra protection program for conservation.

Then, we’ll encounter many other curious creatures that inhabit the Irati Jungle on our expedition. There are a lot of deer here, as well as roe deer, and boars. But it is also common to find the edible dormouse, marten, otter, pyrenean desman, and the eurasian water shrew. Additionally we could run into a woodpecker, a black woodpecker or a white-backed woodpecker. And above the sky we’ll have to keep our eyes open to see if we can spot peregrine falcons and royal eagles.

So if you want to discover all these majestic creatures and explore this amazing place, send me a request. I promise it will be a trip you won’t be able to forget!

I also offer other trekking trips, don’t hesitate on asking about them. Or you can check this Aneto Peak 2 day guided ascent.

About the guide

Since 2009 I have been guiding groups through the Pyrenees, from side to side. Currently, I am in training for UIAGM, and in Spain I work as a high mountain guide, climbing and guiding in mountain skis through the Pyrenees.

I will be happy to accompany and guide anyone who wants to know the Pyrenees in any way, doing trekking, climbing the most rugged summits or skiing through immense territory with the ski.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
