Valle de Ordesa

Highly recommended
The Ordesa Valley is a grandiose canyon whose sheer escarpments are divided into steel, grey or red-ochre strata rising to nearly 1 000m. In spring, cascades streak the vertical face, swelling the turbulent trout-filled waters of the River Arazas as it rushes beneath flourishing vegetation. Declared a National Park in 1918, it currently covers some 38 569 acres. Two lookout points command a splendid view of the region, but the best way of exploring its cirques, waterfalls and paths is on foot (take suitable equipment).
