Course details:

After crossing the Pyrenees via the Somport pass and passing the legendary Canfranc international station, we will stop at Riglos, a small village at the foot of the extraordinary mallos. We will then continue our journey through the Aragonese sierras (mountainous areas) dotted with castles to the Serrania de Cuenca which we will visit more particularly, enjoying its magnificent landscapes and its remarkable towns such as Cuenca and Albarracin. The return will be carried out always favoring routes through the sierras to Alacañiz, then after crossing the Ebro plain we will reach the Pyrenees again. Those who wish can go to Alquezar, one of the most beautiful villages in Spain in the heart of the Sierra de Guara, and follow the Rio Vero canyon to Ainsa or follow us passing through Graus a little further on. ballast. We will meet up to go up the Aniscle canyon to Nerin. Then we will end this journey with a break at Balneario de Panticosa where the steep climb will be rewarded with a bath in the thermal baths and finally a return to our starting point via the Col du Pourtalet.
The stages sometimes involve a significant difference in altitude but this are also not Alpine passes.
The itinerary will be respected as much as possible but it may vary depending on weather conditions or other constraints. It has been carefully developed and we know the main points of interest in the first half. A few stages of the return will be a total discovery for us.
Our journey is based above all on a spirit of freedom.
You are free to do the entire route with us or join us for only part of it.

Principles of travel:

  • everyone drives at their own pace and independently (no assistance, everyone is responsible for any technical problems, and the machines must be equipped with signage ensuring good visibility in all circumstances),
  • in a group or not,
  • trying as much as possible to meet up at the stage in the evening with joy and good humor, but only if we want to and if we succeed,
  • everyone chooses their own accommodation. The stages are planned to be able to stop at campsites as much as possible but there are sectors where we will not find any. The alternative is hotels, guest houses, or group shelters; wild camping is generally prohibited in Spain and in certain tourist places, the Guardia Civil watches over it vigilantly;
  • no booking accommodation too far in advance, their choice may be adapted depending on weather or other conditions.
  • no worries…

The group will be limited to 10/12 people to anticipate accommodation problems if we all regroup in the same village.
