DESERT LANDSCAPE OF `LAS BARDENAS REALES´
In the southeast of Navarre, close to `Tudela´ is the semi-desert `Las Bardenas Reales´, protected by UNESCO, a biosphere reserve and true landscape jewel.

Inside the `Bardenas Reales´ you will discover the more desolate `White Bardenas´ as well as a zone of vegetation. Bird lovers can observe a variety of birds of prey here.
The majority of the park is protected, but there are plenty of hiking and mountain biking trails as well as marked paths for cars, segways or 4×4 tours.
