Ordesa National Park / Monte Perdido


Ordesa National Park is located near the French border in the Province of Huesca. This renowned park covers an area of 15,000 hectares and encompasses three valleys carved out by glaciers beginning at the foothills of the Monte Perdido, a mountain soaring 3,355 meters high. This jewel of a park has some of the most spectacular natural landscape in Europe and has been declared a place of World Humanity Heritage by UNESCO.  The scenery has a stunning scope of diversity and contrasts.  Dry desert terrain, together with lush green forests, limestone mountains, deep canyons, caves, glacier valleys, lakes, waterfalls and lots of wildlife make up the surroundings.

Naturally, a large variety of mountain and adventure sports can be enjoyed here.  Especially excellent here are the fantastic trekking trails and climbing areas for all levels from beginner to expert.  A popular hike is the "Circa Soasa", which is not too difficicult and provides some excellent scenery.  A good idea is to start off in the picturesque village of Torla and look into all the treks that start from there. You may want to try some local tapas too.  Good areas for climbing are Gallinero, Petit Vignemale or Tozal del Mallo. The park is open from May through mid-November.
