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.

My guide Luis was great! He was very informative and entertaining, and made sure that we walked at my pace. He was very knowledgeable about the area and told me a lot about it. I like his philosophy of \"leave the places you visit better than how you found them\" and his passion for hiking, camping, and the outdoors. We also went to El Escorial, which was impressive and fascinating. I really enjoyed my day up in the mountains with Luis and thank him for inspiring me to continue on this path of exploring our beautiful world. I would highly recommend Luis and your company for others looking for hiking or trekking opportunities.

Our guide was not Gabriel, but a subcontractor names Luis. He was great! (very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly) and should have gotten 5 stars except that he arrived late to pick us up, and he said he would send pictures but didn\'t. Our scramble at La Pedriza was awesome! Explore Share should maybe get 3 1/2 stars, I found their description of this adventure not accurate. It said we would climb La Pedriza and Penalara (not possible in one day) and no experience was necessary. A beginner hiker would find this challenging, would have to turn back before the real adventure begins, and be disappointed. Scrambling requires an intermediate fitness level. And the picture shown with the advertisement isn\'t what we saw, no jagged peaks, no helmets, no ropes. All things considered it was still a great experience!

Pere was great! He was very pleasant and patient with us, as we struggled going up the mountain. Highly recommend!

I was a bit hesitate to book with explore-share as I have never heard of it and am a women traveling alone looking for a hike to do in another country. I am elated I booked with Pere on a full day hike in the Pyreneess. Pere was very nice, funny and professional- he had lots of info on history, culture and of course everything mountainside. He brought snacks and bought coffee which was unexpected but very appreciated- he provided transportation & had lots of extra gear too! He was very good at judging my skill level and pushed me just enough as far as pacing and trail difficulty. I am so lucky to have chosen Pere as a guide! Internally it was a physically and mentally challenging hike; I would not of made it to the top if I was alone. If anyone is hesitating on which guide to pick I would say to look no further and go with Pere. It was the highlight of my trip to Barcelona and will remember it for years to come when looking for extra motivation & momentum on my next hikes.
