Valle de Tena Explorer

This week we ran our second Valle de Tena Explorer of the season which is a new dual level week for this year. Every day there were two different levels of walks to choose from. The easier walks explored the beautiful meadows and lakes of the valley whilst the higher level walks reached some fantastic summits in the area.

There was an abundance of wild life and flora to be seen, superb views and even a spot of swimming!

Below are a selection of photos taken during the week -
