HIking in Alquézar, Sierra de Guara and the Pyrenees (Spain)

 Description

Hiking, or hillwalking, is a great option for those who wish to spend a relaxing day exploring the countryside with one of our guides, who will take you along paths with spectacular views over the most emblematic canyons and gorges in the region.

Your guide will help you to discover the region’s characteristic flora and fauna including Griffon Vultures, Egyptian Vultures and if you are lucky even the rare and solitary Bearded Vulture. Depending on the route chosen we could encounter, abandoned villages, dolmens, cave paintings ...and many other worthwhile attractions.

Due to the climate in the region , the best time of year to discover Sierra de Guara is in Spring and Autumn, when the vegetation is especially colourful, the temperature is pleasant and there are fewer visitors to the park, making for an particularly memorable visit.

On occasion we also run walking trips in the Pyrenees, taking advantage of the delights of the national Park of Ordesa and Monte Perdido.
