Snow-dusted peaks, plunging valleys, and centuries-old alpine villages make the Spanish Pyrenees irresistible for a WT hiking adventure. We explore from the jagged limestone peaks of Ordesa National Park, nestled along the French border, to Catalonia's Aigüestortes National Park, with its crystal-clear lakes. We'll hike to craggy ridges where mountain goats scramble, explore valleys where the ancient Aragonese dialect is spoken, and ramble the back lanes of stone-built Pyrenean towns. Along the way, our expert Trip Leaders introduce us to Basque, Aragonese, and Catalan culinary specialties. Our final hikes cross the high lakes of Andorra and the Catalan Pyrenees, with a wonderful finish in the renowned cultural hub of Barcelona.

With more than 200 different adventures to choose from, we want to help you find the trip that’s right for you. Our Trip Level system ranks each trip in two ways: a number rating from 1 to 6 according to the activity, and general travel rigors. 1 is the easiest and 6+ the most difficult—see descriptions below for explanations of each number. A plus (+) sign means the trip is a bit more strenuous than other trips of that level. The detailed explanation of each trip—below the bar with the number rating—is perhaps more important, specifying activities, altitudes, hiking, and travel conditions. The Detailed Itinerary, available by download or mail, gives further information. Our Area Managers can also answer questions and guide you to the trip that best suits your interests.
Level 1 – Easiest
Non-camping journeys, optional walks, little elevation gain or loss.
Level 3 – Moderate
Half- to full-day hikes (3-6 hours) over rolling countryside on most days, occasional steep trails. Many of our hotel-based walking tours are in this category, as are our snorkeling adventures.
Level 5 – Strenuous
Full-day hikes (4-8 hours), mountainous, steep terrain (hiking up or down as much as 3,500 feet) on many days. Trips with hiking at average altitudes of 10,000 to 12,000 feet are in this category.
