Croqueta de Obarra is located in the Aragonese Pyrenees, in the province of Huesca, northern Spain. The Aragonese Pyrenees feature the highest and wildest rugged peaks in the Pyreness Range (3,404m), offering many attractive via ferrata routes for all levels.

Considered a level 4 route, Croqueta de Obarra is one of the most challenging ferratas in the autonomous community of Aragon. It comprises three different sections that progressively increase in difficulty.

During the journey, we will ascend a total slope of about 327 meters, over an estimate of four kilometers in three hours, up to the summit at 1,396 meters. We will climb a mix of hard, steep rocky walls and a few easier ones, and cross three Tibetan (suspended) bridges, while enjoying breathtaking views to the valley shaped by the Isabena River. Once we reach the summit, we will have an estimated one-hour descent.

While this is not an easy route, we will find many escape trails along the way, in case any climber would like to call it a day earlier.

If you are looking for other activities in the Spanish Pyrenees, I recommend the guided ascent to 3,371m Posets Peak, the guided canyoning tour in the Pyrenees, and the climbing 3,144m Balaitous or Pico Moros.

If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).

What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
