Guided Walks



Local insights and knowledge…

We use local Spanish qualified mountain guides. Carefully selected by us, they share our passion for the area where we live. This means you will learn about the culture, geology, and wildlife of our area, as well as enjoying breath-taking scenery.
Whatever the holiday we will be walking over uneven and rocky ground. We do grade each holiday according to the walking involved. Simply find your holiday on the table below and then refer to our definitions. We have also included an example of each of our graded walks.
Please note, we always consider the weather forecasts and trail conditions before finalising our daily routes.

Our Routes

Example Walking Trails

Easy Walk: Valley of Ordesa

Distance: 8km (option 12km)
Elevation: 200m (250 with extension)
Terrain: Mainly wide forest tracks, rocky paths down to waterfall viewpoints.

A beautiful walk through beech woods with a gentle climb.

We follow the river Arazas along the bottom of the Ordesa canyon, visiting 3 very different, but equally dramatic waterfalls. There is an option to extend the walk to the Soaso cascades. This also gives views to Monte Perdido at the head of the valley (an extra 4km). Our local guide will explain how the valley was formed, as well as keeping an eye out for the wildlife, including the elusive black woodpecker!


Moderate Walk: Canyon of Añisclo

Distance: 10km
Elevation: 350m
Terrain: Wide rocky track gradually ascends to a single track path, rocky, and narrow in places. Short switchback section with steep climb.

We explore the canyon of Añisclo, rich in history, as well as flora and fauna.

One-kilometre-high cliffs will tower above us whilst vultures circle overhead on the thermals. The river Bellos has carved the limestone of this canyon, forming deep channels, waterfalls, and beautiful turquoise pools.

Nestled in a cave above the river is the tiny chapel where our village Saint lived in the 8th century. The Camino of Saint Urbez starts here. We climb out of the canyon, through the woods and up to a Romanic church on the edge of a mountain hamlet. The views here are breathtaking.


Challenging Walk: Faja de Pelay

Distance: 22km
Elevation: 760m
Terrain: Steep initial ascent with switchbacks. High rocky single track with some exposed sections. Wide return path along the valley bottom.

A tough long climb up through the pine trees is rewarded by breathtaking views down and across the Ordesa Canyon. We gradually traverse the south side of the canyon. The impressive U shaped valley opens up in front of us, with Monte Perdido dominating the skyline. Our descent takes us to the famous horsetail falls. This is our turning point for the trek back via the valley bottom. Once on the return leg we will pass the cascades of Soaso and 3 other impressive waterfalls.

A long day but truly memorable.
