    Canyoning-Baranquismo.

    by seagull69 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Baranquismo or Canyoning is basically donning a wet suit (usually) and absailing into a ravine to follow it´s course. In some places you can jump from 3-10 metres into deep water pools (feet first!) and body surf down water washed smooth rocks. For first timers a guide is essential. Care should be taken with the weather as flash floods are quite frequent and once into the ravine there are few exits untill the valley opens out.
    This adventure sport is practiced in many areas of Huesca and the web site I have mentioned is not the only one but it does also contain; Kayaking, hiking,skiing, rafting etc. It is in Spanish but then we all have access to translators don´t we.

    Ordesa valley
    1 more image

    Hiking and climbing in Ordesa National Park. Declared World Heritage Sight.
    Gob smackingly stunning, if you´ve not seen 3,000Mt peaks before, narrow valleys rising over 2,000Mt from the pastures below. Best time is around October to see the great autumn colours. Walks and climbs to suit all.

    Loarre Castle

    Loare castle by Luke

    Hike from Loarre village up to the castle which is the best kept and probably the most spectacular in europe. It has been the setting for several films including, Ridley Scott´s Kingdom of Heaven. Takes about 45 mins to get up there and allow an hour and a half to look around. Twenty mins back down and then lunch either in Loarre or on to Ayerbe. If hiking is not for you then you can drive all the way to the entrance but you´d miss the feeling of being one of the invaders.
