Are you looking for an impressive activity to spend an incredible day of rural tourism in Huesca? You’re lucky! The Montfalcó walkways route has just reopened its access after almost a year closed.
These walkways, located in the spectacular canyon of Mont-rebei (congosto de Mont-rebei in Spanish) are the most famous of Huesca, along with the walkways of the river Vero, in Alquézar, and without a doubt one of the most incredible activities that can be enjoyed in the area, perfect for groups or even families.
If you have in mind doing this adventure in your rural tourism getaway in the north of Spain, our accommodation, Sidro·Co, located less than an hour from the start of the route, is the perfect place to stay and enjoy amazing activities like this. We are right in the middle between the Alquézar and Montfalcó walkway routes!
Daring walkways and rural tourism: a perfect combination
The Montfalcó walkways are a series of footbridges suspended from the rock, built to allow hikers to cross the gorge safely and enjoy panoramic views previously only suitable for birds. These walkways offer a unique experience, literally walking on the wall and feeling the emotion of being over the void.
An incomparable rural setting near Graus
The Mont-Rebei Canyon, located in the Ribagorza region of Huesca, is a natural area of indescribable beauty. Its imposing rocky walls and the Noguera Ribagorzana river create a spectacular landscape that has captivated nature, hiking and climbing lovers for years.
The experience of walking along vertiginous rocky walls
The route consists of two walkways: the first is 90 meters long, in which you will ascend 30 m. through its 139 steps. The second one, slightly longer, has 215 steps, with which you will climb 44 m. in its 120 m. of length.
But this is not all, because after finishing the second footbridges, you will have the opportunity to cross an incredible suspension bridge, suspended in the air, which will take you to the other side of the Noguera Ribagorzana river, from where you will be able to have completely different views.
Apart from the walkways, there is an amazing suspension bridge
Basic information on the route and access
The Montfalcó walkways trailhead is at the Montfalcó refuge, where there is a free car park where you can leave your car without problems. To get there, you have to take the detour towards Viacamp from the N-230 road. As for the state of the road… don’t worry! It can be reached with a car without any problem, since the old track is paved in its entirety (except for the last few meters, which are still fine.)
Once you have left the car, you will have to walk an approximation along a beautiful downhill path of approximately 2.5 kilometres. Remember that once the route is finished, you have to return through the same place.
