I was there on winter, walking by de edge of the upper rocks of the glacer, with breathtaking views of the snowy peaks of Mount Perdido and others. A lot of GR-tracks to take a beautiful day there, up and under de canyon.

The scenery at Ordesa is spectacular. With tall, rugged cliffs, Ordesa Valley is reminiscent of the Grand Canyon, but more forested. We hiked the Faja Racon trail, which was spectacular. For more hard core hikers, this park's trail system connects with trails in France's Pyrenees National Park.

Incredibly beautiful location for walks and hikes to suit most levels. Please let us keep it this way; Not throw kleenex tissues or anything onto the ground in a national park!

You can drive there with your car and leave it at the park entrance. There is an information point with recommendations to the different trails. If you have forgotten food or drinks there is also a basic restaurant where you can have sandwiches, coffee, drinks etc. Everything is well sign posted and the landscapes are breathtaking.

Take a picnic and some water, hop on the dedicated National Park bus at the car park at Torla (good way to access the start of the trails). Head for the Hunters Trail. 20km round trip along the side of the valley to the horse tail falls at the end, then back along the valley floor. All marked, you can't... More

We went to the park with the bus from Torla and started climbing toward the Mirador. The walk was difficult but the view was absolutely Amazing! I strongly recommend climbing and then going to Cola Cabalo instead of taking the taxi-jeep if you are in average shape. The view is truly breath taking.

we took a route that was a fairly leisurely 3 hours. We could drive to the waterfalls (cascadas) trailhead. The we walked what was mainly a loop--first to the first set of waterfalls (3 of them) and then returning through a beautiful beech forest. Be sure to ask at the main park headquarters in Torla for a map of this... More

Great for birdwatching. Griffon vultures,lammergeiers and eagles amongst the peaks. Get information first from Broto tourist info office ( oficina de tourism) office. Staff there are extremely helpful and speak good English. They can provide maps of birdwatching (observacion de aves) areas. Avoid weekends if possible as very busy and full of climbers and walkers. Access to main entrance is... More

We had two days of hiking and did about 14 miles each day. We were lucky that the weather was fantastic.
