The charming town of Benasque lives for alpine tourism and yet manages to maintain a rural Aragonese feel. It is the ideal base from which to discover the Parque Natural Posets-Maladeta and the excellent trekking expeditions within to the peaks of Aneto on the Maladetta massif, the highest Spanish Pyrenean peak at 3404m and Posets at 3375m. Not just for experienced mountain trekkers the area also provides numerous marked short-haul paths (PR or pequeño recorrido) from which to enjoy the stunning scenery.

The area is blessed with opportunities making Benasque an ideal all round activities centre. To compete with the excellent hiking there is some of the best rafting, kayaking and hydrospeed in the Spanish Pyrenees as well as horse riding and paragliding to cater for all tastes.

A trip to the Banos de Basque spa is essential providing full hydrotherapy and massage programmes to revitalise aching limbs ready for the next adventure.

For winter sports nearby Cerler is the highest ski resort in the Aragón Pyrenees with slopes ranging between 1500m and 2630m in altitude. This commanding position offers spectacular views of the Benasque Valley , the Aneto glacier and the surrounding mountain peaks. The area is a favourite for many skiers looking to get away from large scale commercialism and the 50 pistes over 60kms of downhill runs offer good skiing for all abilities in an area full of inherent charm. There is limited accommodation in Cerler itself and no après-ski so most visitors prefer to stay in Benasque where there is plenty of nightlife catering for young Barcelonans intent on a good time indoors as well as out.
