In the Spanish province of Aragon the high valleys of Anisclo and Bielsa, dominated by the might Mont Perdu at 3353 meters, offer dramatic and varied scenery : high plateau, sheer cliffs, canyons, frozen waterfalls, but all can be explored on snowshoes without any great technical difficulty. The scenery is full of contrasts and will plunge you into another world. Once back at the auberge it is time for tapas and a glass of Moscatel, what a lovely way to finish your day.
