3. THE AÑISCLO CANYON ROAD


During those periods with a large number of visitors, traffic is only allowed in one direction on the Cañón de Añisclo road, up the valley, from Puyarruego to the crossroads of Nerín-Buerba (Vió valley). The way back, down the valley, can be driven from Buerba to Puyarruego.

The Ordesa and Monte Perdido National Park provides 4x4wheelchairs for handicapped people.

The main purpose is to remove any obstacle during the visit and interaction with the nature reserve. Everyone should have the right to enjoy the National Park. Therefore, the environmental Department of the Aragon Government is working to remove and avoid, as far as possible, any obstacle during the visit and interaction within the National Park.
Some paths have been adapted to traditional wheelchairs.

The Ordesa and Monte Perdido National Park offers, free of charge, four "4x4wheelchairs", adapted to trekking paths, available free of charge after booking.

The Joëlette is a vehicle designed by the Handi Cap Evasión founder, Joël Claudel. This chair has a seat, a headrest and stretchers. It has one only wheel, shock absorbers and brake pads. It needs to be moved by, at least, two walking people.

At the front, the helper pulls the chair along. At the rear, the helper steers and balances the chair. It is convenient that more than two walking people help during the journey, so they can take turns if the carried person is too weighty or if they have to go up a slope.

At the moment, the handicapped person should come accompanied, but we are looking for volunteers to help handicapped people travelling alone in the future.
