The Irati forest.
The Irati Forest covers 17,300 h (62,000 ks) of the Basque country, astride on the Soule (Larrau) and Basse-Navarre (Mendive and Lecumberry) provinces (France) and Navarre (Spain), framed by Mount Okabe (1,466 m) and le pic d'Orhy (2,017 m).
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.
It is one of the biggest virigin forest in Europe, formed by beeches and white firs.
