The Baztan Valley
Home to one of the Pyrenees’ most beautiful countrysides, where the sun, rain and fog change the valley’s colors, always giving us a different landscape for each season of the year.
Baztan’s climate is oceanic, with pleasant summers and mild, humid winters. Quiet oak and beech tree forests, hillsides covered with fern and green pastures crossed with abundant streams invite us to enjoy the tranquility of nature.
We recommend visiting the Xorroxin waterfall, whose route we will provide you with, as well as the dolmen located in Iñarbegi.
A small village in a privileged surrounding, a few minutes from France at the Izpegi border crossing (altitude of 672 m). Prehistoric dolmens can be found in this area. In the church, the modernist Neo-Gothic altarpiece stands out. The patron saint festivities take place at the end of June and the main traditional dances are the mutil dantza and sagar dantza, typical in the Baztan Valley. There is a 5,6 km circular route to the Xorroxin waterfall which begins in Erratzu, goes through the farms of neighboring Gorostapolo and crosses the Iñarbegi river.
