“We have just returned from a weeks snow shoeing and winter walking with Aragon Active. From the wall to wall sunshine to the wonderful walking and views we had a relaxing but invigorating week.” Elizabeth. Cambridge. UK
Our Snowshoeing Holidays Pyrenees are the perfect tonic if you are looking to escape the grey days of winter.
We are based in the heart of the Spanish Pyrenees, a perfect location to combine snowshoe walking in and around the National Park of Ordesa with guided walks in the Natural Park of Sierra de Guara.
Snowshoe walking is a fantastic way to discover the real Pyrenees, in all their wild splendour.
Our Snowshoeing Holidays Pyrenees are 6 day programs of guided walks. By combining snowshoe walking with winter walks we have much more flexibility with the weather, enabling us to make the right activity choice on any particular day.
We are Simon and Lucy, your hosts for the week, and you will be staying at our beautiful renovated farmhouse.
The daily excursions are about enjoying this spectacular place where we live, there will be plenty of stops, time to take photos, look at nature or just marvel at the scenery that surrounds us.
It doesn’t matter if this is your first time snowshoeing, our local Expert Guide will be on hand to help.
The group size is limited to a maximum of 8 people.
Why not organise a group of friends! With a minimum of 6 people we can make this a private, tailor made holiday.

Just Some of Our Reviews on this Holiday…
“We have just returned from a weeks snow shoeing and winter walking with Aragon Active. From the wall to wall sunshine to the wonderful walking and views we had a relaxing but invigorating week. Lucy and Simon were knowledgeable and enthusiastic hosts, everything from wildlife and history to culture and the geological features of the region. They provided delicious food for lunch and in the evening and were most welcoming of us into their home and way of life. Exactly what I was looking for in a small group, away from the crowds mountain holiday.”
Elizabeth. Cambridge. UK. Snowshoeing Holiday February 2019
“Really enjoyed my week in Aragon and living in Lucy and Simon’s beautiful home. We were fed delicious home cooked food, much of which had been grown on their own allotments. We were taken on stunning walks to places we would not have found on our own and shared special moments identifying wildlife, interesting geology, and ancient places of worship. Delightful evenings relaxing by the log fire and flopping gratefully into bed after a hard day’s walking and a great dinner. Loved the peaceful remoteness of Albella, 6km down a desterted country lane.”
Anne. UK. Snowshoeing Holiday February 2019
“My mum and I stayed with Aragon Active in February on the snowshoeing & walking holiday. For both of us it was our first time snowshoeing and our first time in the Pyrenees and both were remarkable.
We were spoilt with sunshine everyday. The walks were so diverse from broad snowy mountain tops, snow filled valleys, and forest walks to almost Mediterranean scenery, with rich cultural sites, amazing geology and stunning gorges. This part of the Pyrenees is outstanding for walking; it’s stunningly beautiful.”
Ellen. Brisbane. Australia. Snowshoeing Holiday February 2017
“We spent an unforgettably wonderful week at Casa Allué on a Walking and Snowshoeing holiday. We were warmly welcomed by our perfect hosts Lucy and Simon for whom nothing was too much trouble. Throughout our stay they shared their passion and knowledge of the area and their attention to detail was impeccable.
Our accommodation was a large tastefully renovated stone farmhouse set in a quiet peaceful hamlet. The bedroom was exquisite complete with a small balcony which afforded amazing views of the Pyrenees. The bathrooms were modern and well appointed. Food was delicious, locally sourced and presented with panache!
Daily excursions to different locations were very well thought out and planned, taking full account of the weather. Our mountain guide was knowledgeable, attentive and professional with a great sense of humour. Whilst walking through stunningly beautiful and varied scenery we learnt about geology and wildlife and other interesting topics that made the whole day extremely enjoyable.
We would unreservedly recommend both Aragon Active holidays and Casa Allué as a base from which to explore this beautiful area.”
