Trail walking

Trail walking in Navarre is something special.

A countryside of contrasts that changes with every step you take, with scenery that is so varied that you get the impression that you've travelled thousands of kilometres.

The well-maintained trails will lead you to delightful villages, allowing you to completely switch off and to get back to basics.

Because these trails have this special something that is difficult to explain. A combination of nature and peace, which is really good for your health.

Trail walking

You simply need to decide which trail to take:

nice rail trails, trails alongside rivers that take you to the river source, others that go round reservoirs, paths that take you into the depths of the woodland or those that lead you to some stunning viewpoints...

and if you like the philosophy of Nordic walking, then we can offer you a number of centres located all oooooooover Navarre.

It's a difficult choice, isn't it?

All this without forgetting the calendar of traditional festivals that Navarre celebrates over the year.

You’ll see that Navarre has so much to offer and, if you were doubting it, here’s another taster:
