Val d´Aran hides

Alpine and forest birds in the heart of pyrenees.



The Val d´Aran is a wonderful glacier valley located in the extreme North of Catalonia (Lleida Province).

This beautiful valley is the source of the Garona river, one of the longest and widest rivers of France, and has a great diversity of mountain and forest habitats. Because of this, in the Aran valley it is possible to observe and photograph the most representative species of flowers and animals of the Pyrenees.

Since 2013,  WildWatching Spain and the wildlife photographer Javi Montes, are working in a network of hides covering the most emblematic species of the valley.

This way, during the Spring (May and June), it is possible to hire our exclusive hides for the Pyrenean Capercaillie, in the frame of a strictly regulated activity controlled by the Val d´Aran Government and carefully designed to avoid any possible disturbance to the birds at the leks. The hides are installed is some of the best capercaillie leks in the Pyrenees.
