Ordesa and Monte Perdido

Ordesa and Monte Perdido
Instituto de Turismo de España (TURESPAÑA)
Located in the central Pyrenees and connected to the France’s Pyrenees National Park, the Ordesa encompasses a mountain range with peaks exceeding 3,000 meters and four deep valleys formed by glaciers.

At THE REAL THING, we suggest you discover this UNESCO Biosphere Reserve by traveling along its paths: from the beech and fir-tree forests that cover the lower altitudes – woods that become a watercolor of browns, ochres, greens and yellows with the onset of autumn – you continue to climb, surrounded by vertical walls of rock, until reaching alpine prairies, where, during the summer, you can see marmots or the always elusive chamois, resting next to “ibones” (glacier lakes in the language of Aragon), that empty into cliffs and waterfalls, forming intensely emerald green pools. And if you are feeling fit, you can climb even further to the peaks, covered in snow for most of the year.
