Sierra de Guara

BarrancsGuara

At GUIES DE TAÜLL we offer you the possibility of getting to know the authenticity of the Natural Park of Sierra de Guara and Cañones de Guara, in the Pre-Pyrenees of Huesca, the Mecca of canyoning at European level;

The warmest of waters, the best temperature of the Pre-Pyrenees and a large concentration of canyons in a relatively small area (about fifty canyons within less than an hour drive), make Sierra de Guara, the perfect paradise for the practice of canyoning.

A two-hour drive away from Vall de Boi, we can get to Guara (Alquezar,Bierge Rodellar) in the day or, if you prefer, we can also go for a short stay of two or more days: we can provide you with all the necessary information about the area.

 

When: April to October
Where: Pre-Pyrenees. Sierra de Guara.
Activity: Canyoning
Price: from 45€ to 60€ per participant, depending on the technical difficulty of the chosen canyon.

Other regions

BarrancsAltres

Mallorca, Corsica, Maritime Alps, Dolomites, Reunion... get to know new cordilleras and the water basins of the great mountain ranges of the world: in short, new landscapes and geological formations that were carved out by the force of water over thousands of years, while enjoying both the physical and the technical activity that canyoning offers, in a different and Gaudí-like aquatic milieu.

Dark gorges that end up leading us to the sea, pink granite slides, rappelling over more than 200 meters of volcanic verticality, trips to the center of the earth.

 

When: April to November
Activity: Canyoning
Price: 200€ per group and day of activity + expenses

We will get to know the inner life of canyons by following the flow of their waters, their animals, plants, and the geological formations that the water has being carving out in their walls for millions of years (bogs, screes, etc...).

Canyoning offers various possibilities to choose from, technical, physical and time wise, adaptable to the conditions and interests of the group.

The Pyrenees

BarrancsPirineus

The Pyrenean basin offers a wide range of canyon descents for every level, in canyons or rivers with a distinct geological formation either of limestone, conglomerate, granite or schist. From the banks of river Aragón to the more technical descents of the Eastern Pyrenees or the north face of the French Pyrenees. Based at Vall de Boí, in the central Pyrenees, we can approach any of the classical Pyrenean descents within a day. If you prefer, we can also stay at the chosen area for two or more days so we can unveil other Pyrenean valleys for you.

Ridges

EscaladaArestes

Water divides, natural ascent lines to many summits, an expression of classical alpinism.

Ribagorça, the rock region, is full of it all.

The traverse of the Bessiberris is the area's most renowned, but by far not the most complex. The spires above lake Travesany, the three teeth of mount Tumeneia or mount Pa de Sucre are but some of the most spectacular possible traverses, offering all the charm of classical alpinism and a good dose of slope difference and hours of activity. We can undertake these climbs in the same day or we can spend the previous night at the Ventosa i Calvell lodge. The queen of the Pyrenees, arriving at the Summit of mount Aneto, is the crest of Salenques, a very long and aerial ride.

When: May to November
Where: Ribagorça. Pyrenees.
Activity: Climbing
Price: from 250€ to 400€ per participant, depending on the chosen ridge and the number of participants.

Classic routes

EscaladaClassiques

The classic routes, the logical way up a wall, the obvious line to reach the summit of the desired peak.
Ribagorça is the region of rocks: from the limestone walls of the gorge of Montrebei to the granite spires of Aigüestortes National Park. There is rock for every season and routes for all levels and difficulties.

We can either spend a pleasant morning in any of the bolted routes in Cavallers (Alta Ribagorça) and Pic de Sant Cugat, or enjoy a full high mountain day while climbing any of the partially bolted routes in the Pyrenees (Ordesa, Vignemale, Midi d 'Ossau ...).
