With the arrival of the Easter holidays, many people will choose to come visit Irati forest. To make the trip as enjoyable as possible, we must bear in mind a few things;
- There is still snow on the mountains. This may be an incentive, or a disadvantage depending on how prepared we go. Thus, hiking boots, if you walk out of the tracks, or even to walk on some of them, are highly recommended.
- Of the two entries on Navarre to Irati (Aezkoa and Salazar) at the moment only Aezkoa valley is open, (from Orbaizeta) because by Otsagabia / Ochagavia (Salazar Valley) there is still too much snow and not pass snowplows. This may change, so the best is to ask in the information Office of Otsagabia: oit.ochagavia @ cfnavarra.es In any case, the village of Otsagabia and Salazar/ Zaraitzu valley in general well worth a visit. The time point Arrazola information is from 9:00 to 19:00 from Saturday 23 March until 1 April inclusive.
- As the weather forecast indicates that something will upset your best if you go with warm clothes, spare clothes, and I will also recommend the umbrella than a raincoat only. Around here at least, you will not see a shepherd in the rain with a raincoat. They use the umbrella, because it's what you'll driest maintain.

6. The wildlife starts to move. About three weeks ago I took this photo of a wild cat (Felis silvestris) while waiting in the middle of a meadow vole or to a field mouse move to remove some of the hunger winter. It was not in Irati but on the way to there . In general, wildlife in Navarra is varied and rich.
