Spain: Andalucia

Walking and Cycling in Aragon

  • Discover Aragon a little-known region of Spain, with dramatic mountain scenery and picturesque medieval villages.
  • Walk through the vast ravine of the impressive El Parizal canyon and amongst the towering red rock of Penas del Masmut, where vultures' nest.
  • Enjoy the tranquillity as you cycle through lush pastures and explore the ancient hidden beauty of Valderrobres.
  • Charming 4-star country hotel set in harmony with its rural surroundings, offering gourmet cuisine within an elegant yet relaxed setting.

Sitting between Catalonia to the east, Valencia to the south and the Pyrenees to the North, Aragon is known for its long and rich history, evidenced through its architectural splendour and historic medieval towns and villages. The stunning diversity of its landscape is what makes the region so alluring, with virtually untouched landscapes. From valleys blanketed in olive and almond groves to lush forests and vast lakes surrounded by rugged mountains, it really is a treat for those who want to get off the beaten track and discover an oasis of tranquillity in a unique region of Spain.

On this 7-night holiday you explore the Matarrana region of Aragon, bordered by the National Reserve Los Puertos de Beceite. This single centre holiday uncovers the very best the region has to offer on foot and by bike. We have provided a suggested itinerary for you, but you are free to pick and choose where you walk and cycle each day. Walk deep into the El Parrizal canyon, where towering cliffs rise high as the Matarrana river winds its way to its source in the Puertos de Beceite mountains. High above, vultures nest deep in rocky crags. Explore the enchanted ruins of the monastery of the Virgen of Gracia, as you wander through swathes of lush countryside. Discover the hidden Embalse de Pena reservoir at the foot of the La Caxia mountain, where Ibex goat leap between the lower slopes. Cycle through pastures of olive and almond groves passing abandoned farmhouse (masias), where life seems to stand still. Crossing the medieval bridge of San Roque, the narrow winding streets of Valderrobres are a real delight and visiting the majestic palace-castle is a must!

The charming 4-star Mas de la Costa is an exquisite country hotel, lovingly resorted from a 19th century masia. Set in harmony with its surroundings, it is a place where you can simply relax and enjoy the peace and tranquillity. Your hosts, Francoise and Christian ensure you receive a warm welcome and share with you their excellent local knowledge of the area. The cuisine is mostly Mediterranean, with influences and specialities brought back from your hosts various trips abroad. Dinner is included on 3 nights, in the onsite restaurant. The outdoor pool offers splendid views across the surrounding countryside and a small indoor spa with sauna and steam room is also available for use.
