Bespoke Service

Let us know your interests, ideal dates and duration, and preferred flights, and we’ll create the perfect Aragon holiday just for you.



This graceful city houses a formidable collection of Roman ruins, as well as stylish shops on wide, tree-lined avenues. It’s a city that combines old and new, where chic galleries mingle with Moorish mansions and, of course, the incredible Aljafería palace.

After checking-in at your hotel the afternoon is free to begin your exploration. We recommend you head first to the narrow alleyways of Casco Antiguo, or Old Quarter, lined with snug tapas bars and pavement cafes.



On day two, take a tour around Zaragoza’s highlights, including the Baroque El Pilar Basilica by the riverside, the landmark Seo Cathedral, and the aforementioned Aljafería palace, an incredibly gorgeous building constructed in the 11th century.



Following breakfast and check-out, drive towards the Pyrenees and visit the hilltop Loarre Castle, a superbly preserved fortress near the city of Huesca. Next, it’s on to the monastery complex of San Juan de la Peña built under an overhanging cliff and featuring an impressive Romaneque cloister and a Royal Parthenon.


Valley of Tena

Surrounded by monumental mountains and carved by the Gállego River, the glacial Tena Valley lies at the heart of the Aragon Pyrenees. Discover stunning pine forest trails, pristine mountain lakes and scenic traditional villages such as Hoz de Jaca, Biescas, and Sallent de Gállego.



The National Park of Ordesa and Mount Perdido is how most people would imagine the perfect mountain landscape – an unspoilt jewel of scenic peaks, verdant valleys and flower-freckled meadows. There are dozens of hiking paths within the park, especially at its heart, the Ordesa Valley, and it’s here that we recommend you take to the trails for spectacular scenery that will blow your mind.



Overlooking a canyon in the Sierra de Guara Natural Park, Alquezar is regarded as one of the prettiest villages in the whole of Spain. Its medieval centre is a labyrinth of winding, cobbled lanes that extend from a beautiful 16th century square to the crowning 8th century fortress and the Gothic gateway. It’s a village of legends and lores, told on the coats-of-arms that front the village’s stone cottages and houses.

Stroll into the canyon to visit the cave paintings and famous Villacantal bridge, then reward yourself with lunch back at the central main plaza.



Today we visit one of the twenty or so wineries of Somontano, a prestigious wine-growing region in the foothills of the Aragon Pyrenees that produces some of Spain’s finest whites. You’ll be able to talk to some of the family members who own and run these traditional ‘bodegas’, and learn about the care and dedication needed to produce such fantastic, handcrafted wines.



Day eight, and we provide a transfer to Zaragoza airport or the train station for your return journey home. Or, if you’d like to continue your exploration of Spain, we’ll be happy to make arrangements for extra accommodation and ongoing travel.
