8 Hiking routes for autumn

Year after year, the different seasons we go through give the natural landscapes that surround us their special nuances, providing them in many occasions with a greater beauty that adds to the attractions that each place already has. Undoubtedly, many of these corners see how their appearance changes radically depending on the time of the year in which we find ourselves, causing waterfalls to sprout where before there was barely a trickle of water or painting the landscape with bright colors.

The white blanket of winter, the vigorous spring and the sunny summer, are eclipsed in a good number of places by the spectacular autumn landscapes that we can find in our forests and mountains. The striking colors of autumn, reddish, yellow and ocher, are one more incentive that encourages us to enjoy nature by organizing an autumn excursion to visit one of these natural areas. A beech forest is usually the first thing that comes to mind when we think of autumn, but oak, linden, poplar, birch, chestnut or walnut trees, among others, are also dressed in the colors of autumn, without forgetting the vines that in autumn paint the fields with bright colors.

A landscape of contrasts, of vertical cliffs preceded by dense pine forests, dotted with huge beech trees that enlarge even more if possible the beauty of this place. It is an experience to be able to walk along the Laguna Negra or climb the walls that border it in search of the nearby mountain peaks.

The Ebro Valley, as it passes through Alava, is a perfect example, inviting us to stroll among the vineyards that, as if it were a sea, cover with their striking ochre, yellow and reddish colors the fields that extend under the mountains of Sierra Cantabria, in La Rioja Alavesa.

To speak of autumn in Navarre is to speak of the Irati Forest, of Urbasa-Andía and of the Source of the Urederra or the Enchanted Forest of the Señorío de Bértiz Natural Park, true temples of nature that are visited in autumn by a multitude of people in search of its enchanting landscapes. But Navarra also offers us other paradises such as the ones we can find in the Ultzama Valley, where authentic monumental oak trees await us, such as those of Monumental Robles of Jauntsarats and millenary forests such as the Orgi Forest.

Undoubtedly one of the most important attractions of the Natural Monument of Monte Santiago is the impressive Jump of the Nervión, a waterfall as admirable as it is difficult to contemplate in all its splendor. But the lush beech forests, along with the various vertiginous viewpoints that plunge into the Delika Canyon, where the Nervión flows after its endless fall, offer a more than reasonable compensation for the possible lack of water in the waterfall. If we add to this the special collaboration of autumn, we are facing a fascinating autumn landscape.
