Trekking Benasque Valley

The Benasque Valley, in the heart of the Pyrenees, is home to the most significant number of 3,000-meter-high peaks in the Pyrenees, distributed in three groups of peaks around the Maladetas, Posets and Perdiguero massifs.

In this Trekking through the Benasque Valley, we will enjoy the spectacular landscape richness of the Posets-Maladeta Natural Park. This mountain group brings together the largest concentration of peaks over 3,000 meters in the entire Pyrenees. The Posets Maladeta Natural Park offers us an impressive set of 13 glaciers, 95 ibones (lakes of glacial origin) and waterfalls of great beauty. Deep valleys, high peaks, rivers, meadows, forests...

In addition, we will have the experience of spending a night at the Cap de Llauset Refuge, the highest year-round mountain refuge in the Pyrenees (2425m), surrounded by several 3000m peaks, including Aneto. It has been built modularly, with materials from the valley, making it more respectful of the environment.
