Tourism in Ainsa

Tourism: Ainsa, Ordesa Park and the Pyrenees

At the reception we offer tourist information about routes and excursions, when you arrive at the hotel we also offer you an exclusive brochure about the different Parks (National and Natural) and other interesting places in our surrounding, with detailed maps of walks and excursions you can do.

A big part of the territory of the Sobrarbe Region is integrated in three natural areas that protect their ecologic richness: the National Park of Ordesa and Monte Perdido ( Añisclo Valley, Pineta Valley, Ordesa Valley, the Gorge of Escuain…), the Natural Park of Posets Maladeta and the Natural Park of the Sierra y Cañones de Guara. The traditional gastronomy and the interesting spots share the outstanding monumental richness of the villages and the beauty of the landscape. A privileged place, an attractive natural surrounding that allows choosing the many activities that are offered: walks, excursions, adventure sports, cultural routes or touristic routes.

You can dedicate your time in going for a walk into a beautiful nature that is easy to enter. In each season there will be other colours, lights and forms, and the wind, the water and the sun are perfect landscape “builders”. You can also decide to find something with a bigger effort and practice a mountain sport like canyoning, rafting, skiing, etc…, or get to know better the National Park of Ordesa or one of the two closest Natural Parks: the Posets Maladeta and the Sierra y Cañones de Guara.

If you would like to make an excursion, the long or short tracks will offer you memorable and beautiful spots in a region that is built on a heaven of peace in an incredible nature. It’s an ideal destination to do different activities in the open air. Other possibilities on offer in the region include visiting the nearby villages, like our home town of Ainsa, where you can walk on the paved streets and admire the lovely monuments that transmit the medieval period; Boltaña, where you can get lost in the streets and spots of the biggest old town of the region; Bielsa, a village that’s very close to the border of France; the valley of La Fueva, formed by small villages and hamlets that are still not completely discovered; or the valley of Chistau, whose population is saving the traditional taste and habits that they have maintained over the years.

Those who love good cooking will find this location suits them well, because the traditional gastronomy here is of a very high standard and full of character. The traditional food is combined with a high standard of cooking and gives a specific identity to this region.
