Sierra de Guara

The Sierra de Guara is located in the North of Spain, in the Pyrenees of Aragon. In the heart of the province of Huesca in an area called Somontano. Declared Natural reserve in 1990, Sierra de Guara is known today as "the Natural Reserve of Sierra and Canyons of Guara" and represents the widest natural space protected in Aragon.

 Paradise for people in love with nature, the Sierra de Guara offers to its visitors imposing and uniques landscapes in Europe. Indeed, since million of years, under the combined effects of the erosion of the rivers, the rain and the wind, limestone's relieves were formed mixing hills, middle mountain ranges, cliffs, caves, throats and canyons. This varied relieves and the influences of Mediterranean and Atlantic climates produced the appearance of a large range of ecosystems. Each one has thus a fauna and a flora adapted to these bioclimatic diversities and there are various animal and vegetable species endemic in Sierra de Guara.

Today Sierra de Guara is known and recognized for its adventures-activities among which the canyoning plays a considerable role. Indeed, with its climate and the hundred canyons within the area, Sierra de Guara is the ideal spot for the practice of canyoning. It offers at the same time a large range of sporting and cultural alternatives among which climbing, trekking, Via Ferrata, horse ridding as well as the visits of the villages of Sierra of Guara, inhabited or not, and numerous monuments sometimes going up until prehistoric times.

Visitors could enjoy as well local products of Sierra de guara such as the wine of Somontano, Olive oil a and black truffles.
