Trip Overview

Overview

On our Guided Walking Holiday Spain you enjoy spectacular walks, whilst we take care of everything else. You will be staying at our beautiful renovated farmhouse within the Pyrenees Geopark, close to the National Park of Ordesa, and the Sierra de Guara Natural Park.

Our location means we have a huge choice of walks, with no two days being the same.
Unlike many companies we also offer a walk for every day of the holiday, and we cater for you throughout the week, truly fully inclusive.

On three of the six days you have the choice of either a moderate walk or a challenging walk, both fully guided by local Spanish mountain guides (see our Guided Walks page). This flexibility gives you the option to have an easier day if you wish.

Please note: some of the high mountain routes do not open until June due to snow. However, the choice of walking here means we are never short of an alternative route!

During all our walks we make regular stops to spot wildlife and look at the geological, historical and cultural points of interest.

Our Guided Walking Holiday Spain is equally suited to the solo traveller, walking club, or group of friends.

This is our only holiday where the group size inreases to a maximum of 10 people.

If you like the sound of this holiday, but fancy getting away from the grey days of winter, then try one of our Snowshoeing holidays. On these weeks we mix walking and snow shoe walking.

Why not organise your own group! With a minimum of 6 people we can make this a private, tailor made holiday.

Accommodation

Accommodation

The base for our Guided Walking Holiday Spain is our 17th century farmhouse, Casa Allué. It nestles on the hillside in the small farming hamlet of Albella, within the Pyrenees Geopark and close to the National Park of Ordesa and the Natural Park of Sierra de Guara.

The Farmhouse

We undertook a major restoration project to transform Casa Allué into both a family home and a “must stay” destination.

The transformation complete, we have created a home from home.  The bedrooms are spacious with luxury en suite bathrooms and thermostatic rain showers. All have mountain views with plenty of natural light.  Four have stone balconies, perfect for star gazing, as the night skies here are breathtaking.
Each room is named after the wildlife that surrounds the house.

“The rooms have been sympathetically renovated, retaining beautiful original features whilst providing a sophisticated en suite bathroom. I could enjoy beautiful views across the valley, gaze at the starlit sky and listen to the natural nightlife. Just fantastic in itself.”

Louise. Lewes. Oct 2017.

We love to cook and we prepare all your meals using only locally sourced, or our own organic produce.  We can cater for all dietary requirements. The flavour is definitely Spanish, but often with a twist!
But it’s not just the accommodation and food that make our holidays stand out! See our section What Makes Us Different!
And for more information on our farmhouse, Casa Allué, visit our page Guest House Accommodation.

“And the food! Our meals were superlative and our picnic lunches were every bit as wonderful. Our stay at Casa Allué was definitely a highlight of our trip to Spain.”

Reviews

Just Some of Our Guest Reviews…

“For anyone who loves hiking but wants to relax at the end of the day and be looked after in beautiful accommodation then this is the perfect company to book with !
Lucy and Simon Woollons have beautifully restored their stone farmhouse to create high quality accommodation in a picturesque village in the Spanish Pyrenees. But this is just the start of their boutique small group holiday concept.

Part of the beauty of their business is that they offer such a range of experiences but they all have in common the wonderful location, the stylish and comfortable accommodation, the tasty abundant home cooked food, the company of other guests and the warmth and friendship of Simon and Lucy.
I was travelling solo and wanted a week of hiking and I couldn’t have chosen better. Every aspect of my week was perfect. Every day they chose a walk that best suited the group and the weather, sometimes guiding us themselves and often using experienced and knowledgeable local guides. We had unseasonably warm weather but this made for splendid views and raging waterfalls and rivers because the snow was melting so quickly and I was hot enough to brave a quick dip in an icy cold mountain pool!
I highly recommend booking a holiday with Aragon Active!

“This was my first organised holiday so I was not sure if it would work for me but my expectations were exceeded in all respects! Simon and Lucy have considerately crafted everything down to the finest detail, creating the opportunity for people to enjoy a really wonderful experience.
The rooms are lovely with a really comfortable bed from which I could enjoy beautiful views across the valley, gaze at the starlit sky and listen to natural nightlife with no disturbance from traffic. Just fantastic in itself. The rooms have been sympathetically renovated, retaining beautiful original features whilst providing a sophisticated en suite bathroom. Food was consistently delicious, often with local organic produce and regional cuisine too.
Simon and Lucy are really warm and thoughtful, catering for everyone’s needs and desires and organising the walking itinerary according to our specific interests and abilities as well as the weather which was beautiful throughout.

We could not have had a better guide, Alberto is from the area and absolutely passionate about it. He effectively conveys his understanding of geology, wildlife, human history, livelihoods and sustainability, weaving beautiful stories that gave us real insights and enabled us to engage fully with our surroundings. Our small group bonded quickly as we shared in exploring and marvelling at such beautiful places. In one week I transitioned from being stressed and exhausted to feeling inspired, energised and more relaxed than I can remember in ages – Wow!”

“I had such an amazing time in April/May 2016 that I returned in May 2017. The walking was incredible. The landscapes were all different and all stunningly beautiful. I will never forget walking in Ordesa, Añisclo, the Sierra de Guara and Bujaruelo.
Our guides were knowledgeable about geology, flora, fauna, history and folklore and were fantastic company.
Lucy and Simon were tireless as hosts, making sure everything was completely perfect. The food was amazing, the house enchanting and the weather (end of April, beginning of May) was ideal for walking in the mountains. Lucy and Simon kept an eye on the weather forecast to ensure we had the best conditions for walking. Casa Allué is so well situated that if the weather looks dodgy in the high mountains there are many other wonderful areas to explore within reach. (In two separate weeks there was only one day on which the weather wasn’t suitable for the Pyrenees, and I wouldn’t have missed that – we went to Guara and had a day filled with gorges, turquoise waters, vultures, olive groves, poppies and cave paintings).
Now I have to go back for the Autumn colours.”

“I joined a walking holiday at this beautiful, undiscovered part of Spain. It’s a fabulous area to explore with amazing mountains, scenery, wildlife. The guides for the walking were fantastic – knowledgeable, enthusiastic and great fun. Everything was organised so well and with lots of attention to detail. The farmhouse has been converted in the most sympathetic way, so is both comfortable and authentic. Food delicious! Simon and Lucy were fantastic hosts and took care in looking after everyone really well. Highly recommended as a base for walking and discovering this gorgeous place.”

“I loved my room with its fantastic view over the mountains, comfy bed, beautiful shower room, everything and more !
The walks were all amazing, and were tailored to everyone’s individual needs, photos do not do it justice. The colours at the time of the year made it spectacular and we had good weather too ! Alberto the guide was fantastic and we learned a lot from him.
I have very happy memories of fantastic autumn colours, golden beech forests, waterfalls, ancient villages, awesome canyons, snow topped mountains……the list is endless !
If you love walking in beautiful scenery, nature, photography, flora and fauna – book this holiday, you won’t regret it !
Best thing I did was to book this holiday, I would love to return one day !!”

Simon and Lucy – Your Hosts & founders of Aragon Active

We are a husband and wife team, but more than that we are a family. Penny and Sofi, our two daughters are an integral part of Casa Allué, our family home, where you are welcomed not just as our guests, but as friends.

Here, you can disconnect completely, leaving behind the worries of everyday life, surrounded only by nature. It’s what drew us here in the first place to start our new business.
