The annual temperature variation is about 14º, the warmest month being August, with a 22ºC average. Rainfall is important, many of which are in the form of snow. The maximum monthly rainfall takes place in December and the minimum in July.
Geographical Environment:The Urbasa-Andía Natural Park in western Navarre is conformed by the Urbasa and Andía mountain ranges. The NA-120 road links Etxarri-Aranatz with Estella-Lizarra and runs along the Andía range. Just a few metres from the road's 20th kilometer, you will find a Roman road, a thousand-year-old witness of an era, which connected Valdega with the Arakil valley. This range contains one of the most spectacular places in the park: the Iranzu Monastery.
