Pyrenees, Spain

This spectacular walking holiday is based in two beautiful but vastly different Spanish national parks in the Pyrenees.

We fly to Barcelona and drive to Boi, a small village in Catalunya, at the entrance to the Parque Nacional d'Aigües Tortes i Sant Maurici. This park is famous for its towering spires and necklace of small lakes. The wooded valleys are fringed with Romanesque churches, which give an air of permanence almost as great as the mountains.

From Boi we drive, and then walk up the wooded valley to the barrage, where the scenery changes and is reminiscent of Skye. We pass many jewel-like lakes on our walk to the Refugi de la Restanca, where we stay and explore.

On our return to Boi, we drive to Torla in Aragon, for our walks in the Parque Nacional de Ordesa y Monte Perdido. This is one of the oldest and most dramatic of parks; an unspoilt mountain wilderness with canyons, peaks and waterfalls. The Goriz refuge will be our base while we discover Monte Perdido and that most dramatic of Canyons, the Añisclo.
