The leisure center ("base de loisir") at Baigura, on the road from Hélette to Louhossoa (in the commune of Mendionde), organizes paragliding activity on the northern slope of the mountain.
The name Baigura is related to modern Euskara (Basque) ibar 'valley', ibai 'river' and guren 'limit' and means 'the end of valley'.
Mount Baigura is the highest point of a small isolated pre-pyrenean massif inside the French Basque Country in the southwest of Aquitaine, between the former provinces of Labourd and Lower Navarre.
The Haltzamendi (818 m) extends the massif toward the south.
The summit can be reached from Heraitze in Helette, passing by the St. Vincent chapel (Bixintxoko kapera), or from the leisure center.
The Haltzamendi can be reached from Bidarray.
