Our destiny

The 1918 year declared the Protected Area of ​​the valleys that surround the emblematic Monte Perdido and the massif that it conforma. Abrupt and rugged land crowned by high peaks and old glaciers, with endless green meadows lined with flowers and rivers and waterfalls that make the noise of water always present. The 1982 year was declared National Park to protect this space that has a fauna, flora and landscapes of immense natural values.

Going into the Park through any of its entrance doors involves looking up the vertical rocky walls, penetrating dense and mysteriously remarkably remarkable forests into the interior and feeling the continuous noise of the water.

A landscape that will make us feel small, and despite being quite crowded in some areas, it is essential to know.

We will also meet the next Bal de Chistau, still unknown to tourism, preserving the essence of the valleys of the Pyrenees, and we will walk through charming villages such as Aínsa, Tella, Bielsa, Plan ...
