7:30 a.m. meeting at Capdella. We will do a quick gear check and start hiking at 08:00. The journey will last 9 or 10 hours. We’ll cover a distance of 22 km and a slope of nearly 2000 m. From Cabdella we will hike up Riqüerna Valley, one of those little pyrenees valleys with a wide range of charms that transform the landscape. Dinner and overnight at the shelter.
After breakfast we will start walking to the East, to the Pic de la Mainera, and later towards l’Estany Gento, and finally, return to Cabdella. It is a journey of 7 or 8 hours.
Cabdella, Pallars Jussà at 7:30am.
My father and grandfather taught me to love the mountains from a very young age. At 12, I did my first rappel...down the wall of the village church (the priest wasn't there). That's where it all started...
I'm passionate about nature, climbing, mountaineering and ski touring and have been calling the Lleida Pyrenees home for as long as I can remember.
As a UIMLA-mountain leader, I have led trips and expeditions in America (Peru, US and Canada), the Alps, the High Atlas and even Ladakh (Indian Himalaya) and Yamalia (Russian Arctic). Since 2014, I am in charge of snow and avalanche training at ACNA (Asociación Conocimiento Nieves y Aludes).
For me, guiding is not work: it is my passion. Each tour and expedition provides a new chance to discover and share what surrounds us. Respect for the environment, nature and local culture are at the basis of my philosophy of life, which I try to share with joy.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
