Home Road trip ideas Weekend canyoning in the Sierra de Guara… ROADTRIPS
Hop over the border in a customised van and let rip for a 2 or 3 day
weekend of sport and adventure. Our South West rental agencies will tell you how to navigate through the exceptionally beautiful landscape that makes up the Sierra de Guara in the Aragon Espagnol, a sacred site for canyoning in Spain. We will point you towards riverside hikes that climb up to breathtaking cliffs and canyons where hundreds of vultures swoop and dive. Unforgettable memories are guaranteed!
Sounds good? Contact your agent who will give you plenty of tips on where to park for the night and what to do during the day throughout your island road trip.
