The Benasque valley offers probably the largest and most varied range of winter excursions in the whole of the Pyrenees. Its mountains and valleys are a true paradise for mountain climbers, especially for those who prefer to face the snow with snowshoes.
The valley of Benasque is one of the most beautiful corners of the Pyrenees. Not in vain, an important part of its territory is included in the Posets-Maladeta Natural Park. The head of the valley, where the capital, Benasque, is located, is surrounded by sixty peaks of more than three thousand metres, or what is the same, twenty-five percent of all the three thousand of the Pyrenean mountain range, where the most extensive glaciers of the Pyrenees survive (although they are not saved from the retreat that threatens the European ice).
On the Ampriu plain or in Los Llanos del Hospital, parents and children can have a nice experience on board the Huskyman Nordic dog sleds. Many have already discovered the magic of going into musher territory and sledding has become a very popular activity for visitors to the station.
