There are many signposted routes and for all levels.
The paths of the Sierra y Cañones de Guara Natural Park were traditionally travelled by coal sellers, merchants, traders, hunters and local people. Many of these trails have been recovered today. They are signposted and offer all kinds of routes, from the more demanding sports itineraries to shorter walks for the whole family.
Hiking in Guara is accessible for everyone as there are several trails for people with reduced mobility. In 2013, the Sierra y Cañones de Guara Natural Park received the EDEN (European Destination of Excellence) award in recognition of the implementation of accessibility adaptation of small paths to reach areas such as viewpoints, education centres or bird observatories.
Here you can find information on the accessible spaces in Guara:
Many of the hiking trails are simple and designed to enjoy nature with the family; other trails are old historic paths, walked in the past by hunters, coal sellers and nomadic shepherds; there are also sports routes with significant elevation gains that are much longer, in which the effort required is more than rewarded by the magnificent views offered by the landscape.
In these links you will find easier routes that are shorter with less elevation gain. No trail will take longer than three hours and all of the starting points are near the hotel or at most 20 minutes away by car.
Pedruel bridge: barely 40 m elevation gain and about a 2 hour walk.
The hermitage of Treviño and the legends of Adahuesca: about 3 hours and 145 m elevation gain.
Pacos de Morrano: a circular route of about 240 metres total elevation and about a 2-hour walk.
Virgin of the Castle: about 240 m elevation gain and a 2-hour walk, with stone walls and magnificent views of the Mascún canyon.
Tamara Fountains: duration of about 3 hours and about 470 m elevation gain.
Some other examples with an increasing level of difficulty in terms of length and elevation are:
Real de Mascún: the star of hiking routes for the vast majority of those who love the Sierra. Taking this route you will discover much of the character and mystery of the Sierra de Guara.
The ridges of Balces: with beautiful views towards the Pyrenees, the valley of Roddellar and the main canyons of Guara.
El portal de La Cunarda: interesting limestone window formations.
El Tozal de Mallata, Abrigo de Arpan, Regacens and El Ciervo de Chimiachas: Guara cave paintings.
In the Sierra de Guara there is a spectacular itinerary of more than 50 km in Somontano and about 80 km through the region of Hoya de Huesca. The region is part of the Natural Paths programme, with paths that are well-signposted, restored and properly equipped. Taking these paths brings us closer to one of the most special parts of the Sierra de Guara, with its landscape and its environmental, historical, cultural, natural and ethnographic value.

We invite you to discover all these routes in the best possible way, with an Adventure Hiking Guara Moment, accompanied by a specialized guide who will help you to create incredible memories. Not only can you enjoy the landscape, but you can also learn a little more than what you would gain from reading reviews. The mountain guides share their love for nature with all who participate in the activities in such a way that what was a six-hour long linear route with high elevation gain becomes a day of being in touch with nature and of discovering corners, secrets, plants, stories and fauna. It becomes a personal experience that no one can capture in advance and guarantees the safety provided by the mountain professionals who accompany you on your discovery.
Our hiking offer is completed in Somontano with the GR 45, a long and circular route between Bierge and Colungo and the lower areas of Somontano de Barbastro. The GR 11, is a historical route that passes right by the door of the hotel and leads us to the neighbouring village of Alberuela. The GR 14 in the Sobrarbe, is a route through one of the quietest areas of the Sierra. It is a route full of the secrets of Guara. This trail is highly recommended as it displays the diversity found within the Sierra de Guara in terms of landscape and morphology. This trail is already part of the Sobrarbe Geological Park, in Guara with the Pyrenees to the north-east.
Enjoy an Adventure Hiking Guara Moment and discover more about Guara and its landscapes, stories and towns, many of which are now uninhabited.
