Wildlife Walking Holidays Spain
No Single Supplement. Excludes Flights.
A HOLIDAY FOR WILDLIFE AND NATURE LOVERS IN ONE OF EUROPE'S MOST UNSPOILT REGIONS
Wildlife Walking Holidays Spain are based at our renovated farmhouse in rural Aragon, in the Spanish Pyrenees. This is one of Europe's most unexplored and unspoilt regions.
We are located close to the Ordesa National Park, a UNESCO world heritage site and the Natural Park of Sierra de Guara. You will be staying within the Pyrenees Geopark, a UNESCO world heritage site of particular geological importance.
Our daily outings will take us to explore these outstanding areas, making the most of our location. The walking will be varied, however, the pace will always be slow with regular stops as we look at the flowers, butterflies and insects. We will always have a watchful eye for birds and other wildlife.
We will also learn a little of the geology and the human stories in this secret corner of the Pyrenees.
Did you know the Ordesa National Park is also a World Biosphere Reserve and a ‘Special Protection Area for Birds’.
We have more than 1500 species of flowers, 171 species of birds, over 131 species of butterflies, of which 8 are endemic, and 32 different species of mammals.
Alberto Marin is our qualified mountain guide for our wildlife week. You can meet him here along with your hosts Simon and Lucy, both of whom are passionate about the countryside and anything to do with nature. Simon will join Alberto in leading this week, there is little that escapes his keen eye. Together we will discover the fauna and flora of the area.
Wildlife Walking Holidays Spain support the Lammergeier Conservation Foundation (FCQ).
