Planning a getaway soon? Instead of making the classic choice to visit a city or relax on a beach full of people, how about an escape into nature?

The Ordesa National Park just outside of Huesca is home to the famous Monte Perdido, and is the first protected area in Spain and also a UNESCO biosphere reserve.

Any time of the year is worth a visit for the breathtaking views.

Visiting a natural park in the Pyrenees rewards you with a different experience depending on the time of year; in spring and summer the landscape is covered with shades of green and the temperature is mild, perfect for walking and hiking.

In winter, although you’ll need to wrap up warm, the blanket of snow that covers the landscape gives it a feeling of peace and wild stillness.

Ordesa offers a great number of hikes, passing through sheer rock faces, green valleys, impressive mountains, waterfalls, and woods. We recommend you start from Torla, where you will find enough information to get around the park with confidence.
