Ecay

The quiet village of Ecay in central Navarra is the perfect base from which to discover all of Navarras many facets.

Set next to the famous Gorge of Lumbiers (and not far from that of Arbayun) within easy reach of the high Pyrenees, it is also well positioned for Pamplona (20 mins drive), and the central region with its vineyards and medieval castles.

The town itself has a bar restaurant and all facilities can be found at nearby Aoiz or Lumbier (Irunberri). Nearby, for the cowboys and girls amongst us, horse riding in the spectacular gorge of Arbayun (see photo) is not to be missed!

Local Activities

  • Visit the gorges of Lumbiers and Arbayun
  • Birdwatching - large colonies of Griffon Vultures nearby.
  • Horse riding in the Foz de Arbayun
  • All mountain activities in Ochagavia
  • Climb the peak of Orhi; over 2000m but not too tough
  • Visit Pamplona, Roncesvalles and the immense Forest of Irati
  • River swimming just 15 minutes away
    Fly an autogyro at nearby Lumbiers airfield
    Visit the Monaterio de Leire - close to the Navarran heart
