More Info

Wherever you choose to go in Spain, you are certain to find no end of excellent hiking opportunities. You’ll likely arrive in either Madrid or Barcelona, depending on your final destination. From Madrid, Asturias is easily reachable by bus, train or rental car. From Barcelona, Catalonia is an easy car or bus-ride away as well.  

Outside of the three listed above, you could head to Spain’s Celt-influenced northwest and hike along the Galician seashore. The slightly wetter, but equally beautiful autonomous community is also home to la Catedral de Santiago, in Santiago de Compostela. This iconic landmark is the ending point of El Camino, a massive hike stretching from the French Pyrenees all the way to this northwestern city.

Andres was the perfect guide, very accommodating and made the trip fun. Some of the trails were challenging but Andres
motivated us and kept us safe throughout. We learnt a lot about Picos de Europa and stayed in some fantastic places. Would recommend to book with Andres.
We enjoyed the trip very much. Eduardo, the guide, was very friendly and cooperative and he took us through a
beautiful route. We will defenetaly reccomend him to our friends.
Xavi was wonderful. My daughter and I had a great climb. Early in our hike, while I was
enjoying Xavi, I wondered if we really needed him. Then it became clear that it is easy to lose your way on Pedraforca and many do. It was much more enjoyable to have him with us and not have to worry about directions! We had some great conversations and learned a lot about Catalonia as well. Pedraforca itself is legendary, not because it is difficult but because it is so beautiful and unique.
Great Guide and trekking!
