If Stansted isn’t convenient for you there are flights from many UK airports to Barcelona and Madrid. The AVE fast train links either of these cities to Zaragoza where we’ll meet you at the train station.
Barcelona and Madrid are the two biggest international airports in Spain and if you’re arriving from the US, Canada, Australia or other international destinations they are the best airports to fly to.
There are excellent rail links from both Barcelona and Madrid to Zaragoza where we’ll meet you at the train station (see ‘rail links’ to the right).
Alternatively hire a car from Barcelona and drive to the Pyrenees. All of the major car hire companies have offices at the airport and it takes around four and a half hours to drive to us.
Both cities are fantastic places to spend a few days before or after hiking in the Pyrenees.
