Welcome to The Aragón Pyrenees
As you leave behind central Aragón's parched flatlands, a hint of green tinges the landscape and there's a growing anticipation of very big mountains somewhere up ahead. The Aragonese Pyrenees reach well over the 3000m mark and, together with their counterparts on the French side, form the heart of the range, with much of its most magnificent scenery. Viewed from the south, their crenellated ridges fill the northern horizon wherever you turn. The verdant river valleys are dotted with charming old stone-built villages, and the whole region forms a giant adventure playground to which Spaniards, and French neighbours – but surprisingly few other foreigners – flock not only for the wonderful walking but also for a host of other exciting activities from climbing and skiing to white-water rafting and canyoning.
