Guided Walking Holiday Spain
A week of varied walks in the breathtaking landscape of the Spanish Pyrenees
€1350 per person
No Single Supplement
Solo travellers have their own private ensuite bedroom, at no extra cost.
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.

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.
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.
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!

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.
