Beautiful valley surrounded by peaks and with a diversity of forests. Busy at holiday times. Try it in winter.

If you are travelling through Bielsa, the chances are you are on your way to France or vice versa. If you aren't in a rush to get to a destination and have a couple of hours to spare, take the small road through Bielsa and head up the Pineta Valley. This is one of the highest glacial valleys in the Pyrenees and one of the most beautiful. The mountains either side are heavily forested and many waterfalls cascade down the cliffs. As the road winds its way up the scenery becomes ever more dramatic until you reach a large car park and the high mountain ranges come into view. The main waterfalls can be seen from here and are fed by the glacier, so there is always a significant flow of water down to the river. There is a parador here and the restaurant serves many local specialities. I have eaten here and for a parador the prices are very reasonable. As you walk into the park there is a cafe that serves the campsite and some rather basic toilet facilities. Camping here is superb and without restrictions so you can pitch your tent anywhere you like. Although there are many paths through the valley, the main trek is up to the Balcon de Pineda, past the main waterfalls to a high valley where the views are truly breathtaking. This is the land of eagles and marmots, a remote wilderness. If you carry on, the trail leads to the peaks and the French border, only for the serious trekkers. If you take the path to the Balcon allow three hours there and back. Enjoy.
