Please don't forget to bring along enough water as Picos can be extremely dry.
Really, I don´t know why I go to the mountains, what is the mighty influence that catch me... peace, challenge, beauty, overcoming, friendship, self-knowledge... so many things that it would be never ending. But I know that my life would be much worse without the mountains.
These are the reasons that led me to be a mountain guide, to share my passion, my world with all the people who want to enjoy on the mountain and to be a little happier.
I got my title as UIMLA guide in 2009 and since that time I have worked in Spain, my home, and a lots of differents mountains ranges along the world: Alps, Atlas, Pyrinees, Patagonia, Scotland, Norway, Rocky Mountains, Tatras...
We will be delighted to welcome you and show you our favourites places so that they get inside yours hearts.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
