Rincón de Belagua

Belagua is essentially the western limit of the high Pyrenees. Birding this area has several distinct advantages, namely relatively easy access to both mountain and woodland birds, fantastic scenery and that certain air of distinction surrounding the Pyrenees of Navarra.

The drive from Isaba to just past the French border is an unforgettable experience, with its hairpin bends, river, impressive limestone formations, pastures and forests.
