The Urkiola Natural Park occupies an area of 5,768 hectares (14,253 acres), formed by the Aramotz-Eskubaratz, Durangaldea and Aragio mountains, lying between the provinces of Bizkaia and Araba-Álava.
In Euskera, the Basque language, urkiola means a place with birches. The park is located at the heart of Euskadi, the Basque Country, surrounded by great mountains, stories and legends, like the one about Mari: the goddess or lady of Amboto, who roamed the region thousands of years ago and looked after the shepherds and their flocks.
