How to get there
Here you can resolve all your doubts about how to get to Navarre, by road, rail or air.
Restricted access spaces
There are many green areas in the territory that are only accessible on foot. You must observe these signposted areas restricted to the passage of vehicles; you may be fined if you fail to comply with these restrictions.
Navarre opening hours
Lunch and dinner times in territory food service establishments are generally: Lunch from 1.30 to 3.30 pm;| Dinner from 8.00 to 10.00 pm. *Always consult your accommodation timetable as it may be different.
Booking the place where you want to stay in advance is advisable. Also, planning and booking guided tours is always advisable, as some locations admit a maximum number of visitors on the same day.
Other useful tips
Always wear proper footwear
Wearing suitable footwear is a good recommendation for any rural tourism or sport activity, such as trips and hiking, and even for less intense days or activities, such as visits to museums or walks through any of our beautiful villages.
Charged mobile battery
Mobile phones have become a vital tool in recent times both to orient yourself through forest and mountain trails and to ask for help in an emergency. So we always recommend you ensure your mobile is charged or you carry a spare battery, in case it is necessary.
A map never hurts
In recent times, modern methods, such as mobile phones and GPS devices, have almost rendered the traditional map obsolete. When planning an excursion, you should make sure you have a physical map of the territory, no matter how rudimentary it may be. If you get lost, there is nothing better to have.
Preserving the environment is everyone's business
At “Navarre Rural Tourism”, we want to encourage visitors to collaborate actively with our sustainable tourism project and to be respectful of the environment. So we ask our visitors to ensure the environment is kept free of waste or other rubbish at all times. Please take special care in putting out and recycling cigarette ends.
Respect for cultural activities
Respect cultural activities
The respect for ceremonies, traditions and people during festivals and popular folklore events, no matter how surprising they may seem, is the best attitude for the traveller. Participating in or observing the event is always the best option, within the bounds of respect and cordiality, of course. Please ask someone if you are not sure.
In Navarre, many of our traditions and celebrations, whether religious or pagan, tend to have different standards of dress and style. To avoid problems, please observe these unwritten rules by finding out about them beforehand. For example, not wearing a shirt or wearing bathing suits at religious or institutional rites is usually inappropriate. Please check beforehand if you are not sure.
… And the best advice
Ask and interact with the people and, above all, enjoy the cultural richness of our land.
