On this trip, you’re sure to be taken aback by the gargantuan sized gorges towering hundreds of metres tall, cutting through Navarre’s landscape.

In search of emotion
Do you want activity on your trip?
If you’re one for the open air, we have to recommend that you prepare your hiking boots — or your bike — to kick up dust on the trails of the Rail Trails that weave through the natural landscapes.
Although you can also do other activities, such as canyoning, rafting and other water sports.
In adventure parks, between throwing yourself down a giant zip line or walking from tree to tree, you’ll also be able to meet other adventurous people like yourself.
It goes without saying, there’s lots to do here!
Culture and gastronomy
Culture in Navarre has several essential characteristics, but two of the main pillars that make up its identity are: its culture, in the broadest meaning of the word, and its food.
Here you will see the outcome of the cultural melting pot that took place over centuries in Navarre, to which Christianity, in all its splendour, put the finishing touch. All of which comes to life through invaluable artistic heritage, traditions and peoples.
Regarding history and monuments, wherever you go you will come across villages with rich history, medieval castles, impressive monasteries, churches, walled enclosures and museums of all types. We have one clear piece of advice to make sure you fully and thoroughly take it all in: schedule a guided tour.

Find your inner peace
With relaxing activities like Shinrin Yoku, immersing yourself in the forest with your five senses, breathing deeply, listening to sounds, observing colours and camouflaging within it all. This is another way of connecting with nature. In no rush.
And practising mindfulness or yoga? Becoming conscious of your body and your breathing to achieve the ever-so desired state of peace, calm and well-being, but in different surroundings than those you are used to.
To deal with the stress and anxiety of your everyday life, it’s good to change scenery.
So are you coming to Navarre?
And on top of all that...
Navarre offers you two spas including accommodations where you can enjoy all types of treatments.
There’s no better plan when your body is asking for a bit of pampering.
Balneario de Elgorriaga Spa
In the north of Navarre, within a vast estate there lies an authentic treasure of nature: the source of the mineral-medicinal waters with the highest salt content in Europe. Take a dip in the flotation pool and you’ll see how you nearly levitate over the water...
It has modern accommodations surrounded by the bucolic Pyrenean landscape with a restaurant offering a complete well-being plan with no shortage of hydrotherapy treatments, oriental massages and innovative treatments like chocolate therapy and olive therapy, among othersTake me to the Balneario de Elgorriaga Spa
Balneario de Fitero Spa
At the opposite side, in the southern part of the region, this centuries-old thermal spa stands over two different sources whose water have been used for therapeutic purposes since Roman times. These spas are called the Balneario Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer and the Balneario Virrey Palafox.
Its medical teams offer personalised treatment to get you feeling tip-top while you enjoy: bubble baths, thermal saunas, circular showers, jets, foot and handbath, among others. Ah, and you can’t miss the spectacular hydrothermal outdoor pool —at 35 degrees—to enjoy a bath even if its snowing!More information on the Balneario de Fitero Spa
