The terrain we encounter varies from rough areas to grasslands and forest paths. While extraordinary snow-topped peaks of calcareous rock accompany us on our journey.
This tour is a wonderful getaway, and the perfect way to enjoy some of the most iconic attractions of the Ordesa y Monte Perdido National Park.
The Ordesa and Monte Perdido National Park is located in the Huesca Pyrenees, Aragon (Spain). It occupies the municipalities of Bielsa, Fanlo, Puértolas, Tella-Sin, Torla and Broto and it receives over 600.000 visitors per year.
The Park covers 15.608 hectares and it has a peripheral protection zone of 19.679 hectares. The altitude goes from 700 m. in Vellós River to 3.355 m. in the Monte Perdido summit.
Without a doubt this National Park is a natural gem, with a geomorphology created by the erosive glacial action, where you can find huge vertical walls, beech woods, waterfalls and a varied fauna.
Brecha de Rolando is a narrow col of 40 m wide and 100 m high, located at 2.804 meters high in the Monte Perdido massif. Legend has it that this gap was created by Rolando, Charlemagne’s nephew, while he was trying to destroy his sword hitting it against the rock after the battle of Roncesvalles.
Monte Perdido is the highest limestone massif in Europe with a summit of 3.355 meters high.
