Located in the north, at the foot of the Navarre Pyrenees and nearly one hour from Gallipienzo, we find some of the greenest and known nooks of Navarre, the valleys of Roncal and Salazar. Known for their exceptional landscapes and gastronomy and with their own Denomination of Origin, become trapped by all the charming nooks that exist in these valleys.
We are offered the chance to travel through nature as well as through rural culture and taste all the cheeses that are made in these valleys. The Belagua valley, the most pronounced Pyrenean ecosystem in the entire Roncal valley, can be recognised for its high peaks, among which we have La Mesa de los Tres Reyes (2,428 metres), the highest in all of Navarre. This spectacular valley is headed by an indescribable as well as karstic landscape; the Karst of Larra, which is one of the most impressive areas in Europe and known for captivating lovers of hiking and the mountain.
Following the Roncal valley we find the Salazar valley. In this valley, the town of Ochagavía/Otsagabia is a post card destination that is always in style. Walk on its stone streets, visit its stone church or walk across its medieval bridge and over the Salazar River. We embark on this adventure and continue down the road until reaching the largest beech and fir forest in Europe and known as the Jungle of Irati.
This is only the beginning of a holiday of relaxation and peacefulness in the heart of the Pyrenees. Discover magical places a step away from Gallipienzo. Plan your holiday today at www.heredadberaguhotel.com.
