Villages along the way: Torla
A truly lovely route to the east of Torla, in which you ascend to enjoy panoramic views over Bujaruelo and Ordesa Valleys. If you prefer to take it easy today, or if the weather is not the best, you may choose to do a shorter valley walk to three historical villages: Fragen, Oto and Broto.
Challenge: 4-6 hrs, 11-15,5 km, 230 m ascent/descent OR 850 m ascent and 900m descent.
Villages along the way: Fragen, Oto and Broto
Today’s route starts directly from your hotel in Nerín. You walk to the village of Secué then descend to the Añisclo Gorge, deeply cut into the massif and kept fresh and green by numerous streams year round. There you choose between doing a route along the gorge or walking the pilgrimage trail to St. Urbez, which circles back to Nerín. If you do not like heights, you can opt to begin your route at the car park in St Urbez and thus avoid the steep, exposed descent from Secué.
Challenge: 6 hrs, 16 km, 750 m ascent/descent.
Villages along the way: Nerín, Sercué
A truly alpine walk to the grassy Biñuales plateau with dazzling views over the Añisclo Gorge then further on to Cuello Arenas Pass, gateway to the Monte Perdido Massif. Option of doing the ascent to Mondoto Peak (1962m).
Challenge: 6,5 hrs max., max 17km, 775m ascent/descent.
