Walks & Guides
Local natural history expert, Alberto, will accompany us on certain days. A qualified mountain guide, he is passionate about everything to do with nature. Founder and vice president of Aragon’s first nature and ornithological association he is also a qualified geological guide. His breadth of knowledge means we are as likely to stop to look at scat (determining what animal used the trail) as or discuss the feeding habits of the endangered Lammergeier (bearded vulture).
Either Javier or Olatz, our botanical experts, will join us for our “Flower day.” Providing the expertise to help us identify the incredible array of flowers on our doorstep, or further afield. As well as providing a fascinating insight into the local customs associated with the plants.
Enrique brings unrivalled passion on butterflies and insects, hi enthusiasm is infectious and adds an additional dimension to our “Butterfly Day.”
On our winter trip, ‘Birds of Northern Spain,’ we are joined by Javier. A founding member of Birding Aragon, he lives in Galocanta, resting place for the migratory Grey Crane.
Our guides were knowledgeable…
Our guides were knowledgeable about geology, flora, fauna, history and folklore and were fantastic company.
The walking in the area is fantastic but what really makes the experience stand out is Alberto, the local guide, and his knowledge of geology, plants, birds...
I went bird watching....they made it fascinating and engaging - not everyday you see over 100 vultures in formation in thermals.
Discover the huge variety of flora and fauna as we walk in the Ordesa National Park, a World Biosphere Reserve.

Walks & Guides
Our guides are qualified winter sport mountain guides. This means even if you have never snowshoed before, in a short time, you will be walking with ease.
We have a choice of routes and aim to be walking for round about 4 hours each day. We work in hours rather than kilometers (km) as it is much more meaningful measurement. Our guides are local (part of our Responsible Travel Philosophy) and passionate about our region. This means you will learn about the geology, flora and fauna as well as the culture of our region.
Knowledgeable, attentive and professional…
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.
Escape the grey days of a northern winter! Spend 3 days snowshoeing and 3 days of guided walks in the glorious Spanish Pyrenees.
