All your questions answered

Helping you find the right holiday for you is important to us, so here's a few common questions about this trip to help. If there's anything you'd like to know that's not covered here, send us over a message or you can also give us a call on +44 1273 676 712 and we'd be only too pleased to help.

When is the best time to go?

We can run this trip any time from May through to October, although we do assume the best time for most families is July and August to tie in with school holidays. These are the warmest and driest months but as you are in the mountains it isn't too hot to enjoy the activities. You can expect temperatures in the mid-20s°C during the day on average.

How far ahead should I book?

We work with small hotels and apartments so booking ahead for July and August is essential. If you have fixed departure dates we suggest at least nine months ahead for August. If you can be flexible, six months should be fine, but we do advise early booking on this trip to avoid disappointment.

Can we travel with another family?

Absolutely, this would be a great trip for an extended family or two families to travel together. It also works fine for different shaped families - one child, four children, single parents, all are possible.

How active is this trip?

The itinerary described includes a mix of guided activities: canyoning, mountain biking/e-bikes, a guided hike and a visit to a conservation centre. These can all be adapted to suit your particular family depending on the age of the children and what activities you enjoy.

We also provide you with maps and routes for a variety of self-guided hikes in each area, from half day strolls to full day hikes so you can choose to fill the remainder of your time as actively as you choose. We can tailor the trip to be as active as you like.

Are there any age restrictions?

We tailor the activities to suit the needs of your family. Some activities (such as canyoning) do have age or height restrictions but we can make other suggestions. As long as you enjoy the great outdoors, we can tailor the perfect family holiday for you.

What if I get lost or need some help?

Although this is an independent self-drive holiday, we are always on hand to help and advise should you need us. You will be given a local support number before you travel - we are always on hand 24/7.

How comfortable will I be?

On this holiday we use family cabins and aparthotels for the space and flexibility. In Ainsa the apartments are linked to a hotel so you have the freedom to cook, eat in the hotel or go into town to one of our recommended restaurants. Breakfast is also included. In Tena Valley, the family cabins are very comfortable with lovely views and a pool. No meals are included here but you have restaurants nearby.

What type of vehicle can I expect?

The vehicle will be suitable for the destination, the distances you are expected to cover, roads, and number of people travelling. For a family of four travelling to Spain you can expect a family-sized vehicle such as a Ford Focus Estate. We can’t guarantee the make and model. Speak to us if you prefer a larger vehicle.

If you need an automatic car, that's no problem, though we do need to know in advance as most are manual transmission. Cost of automatic cars tends to be higher.

Generally the hire cars include one named driver. You can add drivers locally and pay locally. The charges do vary depending on the location but it is usually no more than Euro 10 per day.

Can I take my own car?

Yes, that isn’t usually a problem. Let us know and we will price your holiday without a hire car.

Can I make changes to this trip?

Absolutely. This trip can be tailored to suit you so speak to us if you would like to include more activities or extend your stay to include other parts of Spain.
