Ordesa National Park
On the Spanish slopes with its back to the border peaks of the Gavarnie Valleys, lies the Ordesa and Monte Perdido National Park. This National Park covers four valleys: Ordesa, Añisclo, Pineta and Escuaín. They all promise impressive sights: grandiose canyons, fish-filled torrents, steep cliffs, lush vegetation and powerful waterfalls ... all under the watchful eye of Mount Perdu which rises up to 3,555 meters. The Ordesa National Park belongs to the Pyrénées-Mont Perdu group, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site and which includes the three Cirque of Gavarnie, Estaubé and Troumouse on the French side.
The Basque country
This land of history and traditions, nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Pyrenees, draws its inspiration from its harmonious heritage and contrasts. A stone's throw away from Spain, people are drawn to its beaches, its waves, the surf and also its authenticity. Its cultural melting pot and its ancient heritage juxtapose its contemporary creations – this town has a real pulse. Thalassotherapy on the Basque coast, hiking on the GR10, gulfs overlooking the ocean, festivals and business tourism ...all good reasons to discover the Basque Country! In the heart of the Basque Country, choose a city where you can experience the intense culture: San Sebastian, beautiful and exquisite, gastronomic capital; Bilbao, artistic capital with the Guggenheim Museum or Vitoria-Gasteiz, the "green capital".
