Trip dates: August 4 – 11, 2020.
Join us as we explore the mountain landscapes of Northern Spain! Hike across soul-quenching deep gorges and canyons, climb to the castles of Aragon, behold the power of the Pyrenees.
Ordesa and Monte Perdido National Park
The jewel in the crown of the Aragonese Pyrenees, popular with hikers and climbers, the Ordesa y Monte Perdido National Park encompasses four valleys, all in the shadow of Monte Perdido (3,555m), the third highest peak in the Pyrenees.
This is an area of spectacular scenery with a landscape of towering summits and green valleys with woods and pastures. You hear the water rushing through canyons and gorges. A magical place to visit, filled with soaring peaks, glacial lakes, cascading waterfalls. One of the most important national parks in northern Spain, today it also enjoys UNESCO World Heritage status and is also a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
Home of Ancient Glacial Lakes
The park is home to over 150 different species of animals. The park is home to around five species of amphibians, eight reptiles, 106 types of birds and 32 mammals. These include ospreys, golden eagles, groundhogs, wild boar and goat-like antelopes.
