Trip Overview

Overview

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 Winter Walking Holiday is a 6 day program of guided walks.  The combination of snowshoe walking with walks gives us much more flexibility with the weather, enabling us to make the right activity choice on the 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.

Accommodation

Accommodation

The base for our Snowshoeing Holidays Pyrenees 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 Reviews for this Holiday…

“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.”

“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.”

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.
