Irati Forest

The Irati Forest covers 17,300 h (62,000 ks) of the Navarre (greater region), 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).

Presentation[edit]

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.

Toponymy[edit]

Its name stems from the Irati river, which crops up from the meeting of the Urtxuria and Urbeltza.[1]
