Description

Extensive pastures, beautiful beech forests and exotic archaeological remains are just some of the spots we’ll explore on this 3-day hike around the Aitzgorri massif in the Basque Country!

Located in the western Pyrenees, the Basque Country is famous for having its own language, culinary traditions, and a unique and magical geographic and cultural landscape. During this 3-day hiking trip, we’ll discover the amazing Aitzkorri massif (1,528 m) between the two provinces of Gipuzkoa and Alava. For thousands of years this area has been home to Basque shepherds that have taken care of their pastures and forests, making this region one of the most interesting in the country.

Our starting point and accommodation will be at Fondo de Urbia which will be the ideal place to rest after a long day of walking through the magnificent limestone peaks like the Arbelaitz, Botreaiz, Artzanburu and many more!

To participate in this program all participants will need to have some prior hiking experience as well as a good fitness level. Of course, I will be there every step of the way to make sure all participants are safe and having fun at all times!

Suitable for adventurers and nature lovers, if you are ready to take on this 3-day hike around the Aitzgorri massif, request to book this trip and get ready for an experience you’ll never forget!

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
