Description

Join me for an epic adventure to the impressive Picos of Europa. Located in the north of Spain, these mountains offer incredible views and challenging climbs. Get ready to enjoy an unforgettable 4 days!

Picos of Europa is the second most visited national park in Spain. Because of its proximity to the coast, it offers incredible and unique landscapes that you don’t want to miss. I’ve planned our itinerary for you to catch the best views of the mountains and discover some incredible places along the way. Some of the spots we’ll visit are Fuente De, San Luis Canal, Palanca, Jou de Cerredeo, Jou Negro, Celada, Collada Bonita, Horcada de la Canalona, amongst others. Additionally, you also have the option of hiring a second guide to climb Torre Cerredo or Picu Urriellu. You can check the itinerary described below for more information.

Because we will be doing over 5 hours of activity per day, you will need a good physical condition. Also, you will need to bring the appropriate clothing for the activity including sunglasses,  snacks, water and a personal hygiene bag.  I will be there every step of the way to help and guide you.

Are you ready for a unique adventure in Spain? Then book your trip now and explore this amazing Picos of Europa on this 4-day guided trek. 

If you are looking for more options, I also offer a guided ascent to Naranjo de Bulnes. Be sure to check it out.

About the guide

I am a Leonese and in love with the mountains, especially the Cantabrian Mountains and the Picos de Europa. I grew up in her, maybe that's where love arose and the desire to spend more and more time in her lap. It was for this reason that, early on, I wanted to learn to combine my two passions: education and guidance, in all types of terrain, around the world.

Guide of high mountain (UIAGM), sports technician in rock climbing and in half mountain (UIMLA) are the qualifications that go to me in the world of the mountain. These are inherently intertwined with another that, in his day, I considered necessary for a serious and rigorous teaching of any sports field: bachelor's degree in psycho-pedagogy and diploma in physical education.

All this added to my personal and work experience in the world of the mountain and the sport make that I can enjoy my work and teach with guarantees of quality.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
