Active tourism, an opportunity to discover other parts of Spain

6 April, 2022

One of the many changes in tourism brought about by the pandemic has been a greater emphasis on outdoor activities that require a certain amount of physical exercise and the chance to experience the highs and lows of emotions. This is a direct consequence of the monotonous long months spent in lockdown without much to do.

With this in mind, it’s worth noting that some of the regions in Spain that attract little mass tourism are in fact, being in direct contact with nature, fantastic spots for active tourism. This is the case with Aragon, where such tourism has grown by 18% over the last year.

There are currently 533 companies dedicated to active and adventure tourism, which is 82 more than in 2021. 78.6% are located in the mountainous province of Huesca. The most in-demand activities are canyoning and rafting. The reason? The release of adrenaline and the spectacular landscapes.
