The Atlantic Pyrenees are unique and totally different to the rest of Navarra, a unique landscape, at times serene and at other moments completely wild.  In Aragon, the province east of Navarra, the peaks are at their highest before reaching Catalonia, where the Pyrenees meet the Mediterranean. Throughout the Pyrenees mountains one finds religious monuments, castles, a wealth of Romanesque art and architecture, and of course spectacular scenery. 

Day ONE

Arrive in Navarra and head to Bera de Bidasoa. Accommodation in Bere de Bidasdoa

Day TWO

Visit Pamplona this morning.  See the old city walls, close to the 12th century Gothic Cathedral, as well as the remarkable Plaza del Castillo. Walk the old cobbled streets where the famous San Fermin bull run takes place every July.  In the afternoon, travel north to visit the town of Elizondo, beautifully located in the Valley of Baztan.  Nearby tour the caves in Zugarramurdi (Ikaburu caves), which were once said to be a meeting place for witches.

Accommodation in Bera de Bidasoa

Day THREE

Continue to Bielsa visiting Jaca on the way. Jaca, an ancient city (2nd century AD) has an 11th century cathedral which is one of Spain’s oldest. Also worth seeing here is the 16th century Citadel, a fort on the edge of the town.

Accommodation in the Parador Bielsa.

Day FOUR

From Bielsa you can explore the National Park of Monte Perdido (lost mountain) and Ordesa, to enjoy the natural wonders of this area. The park is a great example of classic Spanish Pyrenees scenery. Within the park there are four glacial canyons giving the area spectacular cliffs and charms.

From Bielsa head to the Valley of Benasque, one of the most beautiful in the Pyrenees, surrounded by the highest peaks in the Pyrenees. Here you might decide to join a guided excursion to climb Aneto, the highest mountain peak on the Spanish peninsula. Next visit Taull which two churches, Sant Clemeint and Santa Maria, have superb reproduction Romanesque frescoes. The original ones are kept in the Museu Nacional d´Art de Catalonia.

Once in Catalonia, the Val d’Aran (Aran Valley) should be visited. Then head to La Seu d’Urgell.
