Nature, adventure, relaxation, life

The splendid nature of the Benasque valley makes it an ideal place to enjoy outdoor activity all year round. The high peaks covered with snow in winter, perfect for enjoying skiing, are also in summer a paradise that invites you to enjoy the environment.

The peaks with the most possibilities and climbs on different routes are those of the Agujas de Perramó (2,550) although there are many very attractive peaks for mountaineers such as the Tucas de Ixeia, Turmo, Batisielles, Jean Arlaud peak, needle of the Paul, Bardamina peak, Crabide peak, Gías peak or Perdiguero peak.
