1-day Aneto peak ascent

Awesome trip! Thanks to Roger for guiding me to the summit on a really extreme day of wind and rain. Unique and epic day out on the mountain. Also thanks to Maca at Explore Share for helping with the booking to ensure everything went smoothly, especially during these uncertain times. Great service!

2-day ascent to Aneto 3404m, top of the Pyrenees

It's a long slog of a climb, but doable as long as you're reasonably fit (but you don't need to be an Olympic athlete). The views are stunning. The Puente (bridge) de Mahoma is mentally tough with steep drops either side and some uncomfortable climbs. I'd strongly recommend using a local guide as they help you with the planning, kit and techniques, they share knowledge of the surrounding area that you wouldn't get otherwise and they help you over the more challenging stretches

We had a fantastic trip. Our guide, Fernando, was amazing - he was very knowledgable about the area, extremely helpful and overall a great guy. Even though the weather was quite bad, this was one of the most amazing hike I´ve ever been on. Higly recommened the guide and the trip.
