Spanish Pyrenees Wildlife Walking Holiday in Northern Spain
This 7-day Northern Spain Wildlife Walking Holiday is a leisurely paced trip available as either a set-departure or on request. It is the ideal holiday for active wildlife and nature lovers in one of Europe’s most unspoilt regions in the Spanish Pyrenees.
If you love nature, animals and the outdoors then you will love this Northern Spain trekking adventure. The walking is varied but the pace will always be slow, with regular stops as we look for interesting flowers, butterflies and insects. And, of course, we will always have a watchful eye for some of the amazing birds of the region and some of its notable mammals.
"Our repeat visit was all we had hoped for. We highly recommend this vacation because of the beautiful scenery, delicious food and abundant wildlife. Day outings with a bird, butterfly or flower expert are not to be missed. Walks through the beautiful mountain environment are not too taxing and you may be rewarded with sights of uncommon species like the distinctive Lammergeier." - Christine and Ed
On this Spain wildlife walking holiday the expert Aragon Active local guides will show you the abundance of fauna and flora of the area. They will also give you a little information about the geology, as well as relating some of the human stories from this secret corner of the Pyrenees.
We certainly have a fair amount of wildlife to show our guests to make their wildlife walking holiday in Spain a memorable one, with more than 1,500 species of flowers, 171 species of birds, over 131 species of butterfly - of which eight are endemic - and 32 different species of mammals.
This Spanish wildlife walking holiday is based in rural Aragon, which is one of Europe’s most unexplored and unspoilt regions. You will be staying in a renovated 17th-century farmhouse full of character and charm. The farmhouse is within the Pyrenees Geopark and close to the Ordesa National Park and the Natural Park of Sierra de Guara, both UNESCO World Heritage sites. The Ordesa National Park is also a World Biosphere Reserve and a ‘Special Protection Area for Birds’.
Our daily outings from our accommodation on this Spain wildlife walking holiday will take us on an exploration of these outstanding areas. In this way we make the most of our location with a return to good food, fine local wine at dinner time and a comfortable night's sleep before the next day's walk.
