    Valle de Tena - Alto Gállego

Our destiny

We are located in the region of Alto Gállego, to cross the Valley of Tena, where it is said that the Pyrenees is present in pure state. And despite being one of the most populated areas of the Aragonese Pyrenees, its territory has a great diversity of landscapes: from the 600 meters to the large three-mile, water, cascades, forests and the imprint that the ancient volcanoes leave present in the colors of these lands.
The inhabitants of this valley have been able to unite progress and traditions. The stone houses continue to show shingles and tile roofs of double inclinations, between old alleys. Bigger and smaller, the villages of the region maintain all the Pyrenean charm.
It is impossible not to stop looking at the spell that emerge from some peaks of this land: Anayet, Midi d'Osseau or Picos Infiernos. Mountains stuffed with legends, our steps can not be but enchanted.

Strong points:

  • Climb to summits: Vértice del Anayet, Pacino, Peyreget ..
  • Typical villages of tense architecture: Sallent de Gallego, Lanuza, Hoz de Jaca, Panticosa ...
  • Great diversity of statues: Ibons, waterfalls, forests, natural bath places!
  • History and legends of the area.


Day 11: Knowing the region of Alto Gallego

Leading Tena Valley, Sallent de Gallego will be our starting point to discover the charms of this region. We will follow the Aguas Limpias river, from Cascada del Salto to the resurrected town of Lanuza, continuing along the natural path of the Embalse that will make us understand how to live in this area.

A path full of stories attributed to the use of water.
13km, 350m

Day 12: Ascension to Tosquera and Pico Pacino, watchtowers of the region

Nothing better to focus on climbing a couple of peaks, fantastically located, to see the whole environment that awaits us in the coming days.

13km, 750 m

Day 13: Ibones and Vértice de l'Anayet

One of our favorite places of all the Pyrenees.

A magical place, where we will walk on the petrified remains of an ancient volcano and the colors that have been impregnated in these lands. Some views you will not forget. One of those essential places!

15km, 950m

Day 14: Ibon de Piedrafita and Bosato Betato

We travel through the alleys of Piedrafita de Jaca, we will enter into the shadow of the lush Bosc de Betato, from where we will make our way to Ibon de Piedrafita. Headed by Peña Telera and the Sierra de Partacua, this lake will not leave us indifferent. We will follow the route between rocam and pastures to the peculiar Arco de Piedra, and with spectacular views we will return to Piedrafita.

15km, 700m

Day 15: The balconies of the Midi Ossau

We will cross the border through the curious passage of Portalet from where the first vision of the Osseau Midi will leave us fascinated. Once on French ground, we will look for the best photograph of this great stone mole doing a journey through the huts that surround it in a terrain filled with lakes and fabulous views.

12km 900m

Day 16: Balneario de Panticosa - Ibones de los Azules

From the historic Panticosa thermal station, we will begin the ascent following the GR11 and the numerous waterfalls that form the Caldares river to reach the refuge of Bachimaña.

Surrounded by the great summits of the area, we will continue until the Ibones Azules, known as the "Caribbean of the Pyrenees", you will easily understand it with the color of its waters.

15km, 850m

Day 17: A walk through history: Santa Elena-Hoz de Jaca-Panticosa

We will walk among some of the most stressed villages, discovering their typical architecture and enjoying the great views of their sites. Along the way, we will find many vestiges of past times: dolmens, hermitages and the old defense line P, where the challenge is to look for the bunkers that are hidden in the lush vegetation.

Following the river and with some walk in the bathroom in one of those idyllic places, we will reach the old town of Panticosa.

13km 500m
