Bidarray (Basque: Bidarrai) is a commune of the Pyrénées-Atlantiques department in southwestern France.

It is located in the former province of Lower Navarre.

From the riverside where you may practise both Rafting and Canoë, the village spreads onto the top of the hill. Discover the superb Roman bridge, the Noblia bridge which spans the Nive. The legend tells it was built by the Laminak or Sorginak (witches) in one night, that's why the people of the village used to nickname it "the Bridge of Hell".
