Belsierre is a village which is strategically located, only 6 km from the Ordesa National Park and Monte Perdido. It is the ideal point of departure for a wide variety of activities: - Mountaineering. We are surrounded by dozens of mountain peaks, over 3000 metres high, among which we find the Monte Perdido, the highest karstic mountain in Europe, and the Posets or Llardana the second highest peak in the Pyrenees. We also find smaller mountains but not less important: Punta Suelza, Cotiella and Peña Montañesa among others. You will find numerous routes for high and medium mountaineering. - Cross-country and mountain skiing: there are a number of cross-country slopes in the surrounding area, such as Fanlo and Pineta. Also, for high mountain skiing we find the Piau-Engaly resorts in France, 40 km. A little further afield, 55 km away is the Saint Lary Soulan resort and 65 km away we find Cerler, in the Benasque Valley. - Canyonning: This is a privileged location for canyonning. There are more than 100 different canyons that can be descended, just a short distance away, making this destination one of the best in Europe for this sport. From the more simple and short canyons to the full day, technical descents. The proximity of the Guara Mountain Range (a unique place to practise this activity) increases the number of possible canyons that can be visited. The different adventure tourism companies in the area will provide further information on the different canyons. - Mountain bikes: from Belsierre you can follow the different routes with a variety of difficulties and lengths. There will shortly be signposted routes for mountain bikes in the area. Some of the best routes include the Real - Pineta Valley, Ordiceto, the area of San Victorian... And many more. - Hiking: several different easy routes lead off from places close to the house and are signposted as PR. Many of these lead to villages of great historical interest and beauty such as Puértolas, Bestué or Escuaín. Another important route is the one leading to the Fuente de los Baños, with its medicinal spa waters. In the nearby area, we find the longer routes, called GR 19, GR 15, and GR 11 (across the Pyrenees). Among them, we can highlight the climb to Peña Montañesa, Castillo Mayor and Sestrales. If it is dry, the Barranco de Airés is a wonderful place to visit. A little further ahead, we can discover the valleys of Añisclo, Pineta, Ordesa, Escuaín, Barrosa, Trigoniero, the climb to Ibón de Urdiceto, or marvel at the Basa de la Mora in Cotiella, Gistaín, Viadós and even the French Pyrenees, with the Neouvielle Nature Reserve, Soum de Salettes, etc. - Horseriding: we can find horseriding organizations in Pueyo de Araguás, Banastón, Bielsa, Saravillo, Sarvisé, and Margurgued. Horses can be hired per hour or full day excursions, and even for several days. Please consult the prices and activities. - White water: rafting, kayaks, etc. In Aínsa, Broto and Torla, we find several companies which rent out all the necessary equipment and provide guidance on the different rivers, gorges and mountains. Rafting from Torla - Broto along the river Ara is considered the most difficult commercial stretch in the Pyrenees. In the following rivers: Ara, Cinca, Cinqueta, Barrosa, Esera and others, we can go canoeing at different levels of difficulty. - Paragliding: the nearby town of Asín de Broto offers a two-seater paragliding service. In Castejón de Sos (towards Benasque) we find one of the main centres for paragliding in the Pyrenees. - Potholing and caving - Ski resorts and cross-country skiing - Rock climbing - Ice climbing - Hunting and fishing Mushroom collecting 4x4 excursions and quads - Paint-ball - High mountain skiing
