Follow Martin, an IFMGA mountain guide from Spain, on this exciting 5-day ski touring adventure starting of from Pont d'Espagne in the stunning French Pyrenees.
Mar, Apr, May
Explore the stunning central French Pyrenees on a unique adventure. Follow me for a round 5-day experience on amazing skiing routes, starting from and ending at Pont d’Espagne.
One of the great things about the Pyrenees is that there are fewer skiers in than in the Alps. Therefore, we can enjoy the place and the skiing routes more comfortably. On this trip, we’ll explore some of the best runs in the area and go up spectacular peaks. Along the way, we’ll go through beautiful lakes, forests and incredible powder snow. Additionally, we’ll also sleep in remote mountain huts to enjoy this experience at its fullest.
My proposed itinerary is as follows:
Day 1: Pont d’Espagne – Wallon Refuge
Day 2: Wallon Refuge – Pic Cambales (2,960m) – Wallon Refuge
Day 3: Wallon Refuge – Col Marcadau – Bachimaña Refuge
Day 4: Bachimaña Refuge – Col Tebarray – Respumoso Refuge
Day 5: Respumoso Refuge – Col Gran Facha – Refuge Wallon – Pont d’Espagne.
We can also visit the hot springs at Cauterets for a relaxing time before going back home.
So follow me for five incredible days in the impressive French Pyrenees. Book your trip now. I would love to be your guide!

Martin was really the perfect guide for my and my 17-year old son’s alpine adventure week! In the end we only climbed one out of the three peaks that we had planned to, but on the other hand we climbed three other great ones instead (something we decided together). I really appreciated his flexibility and also that it was easy to hang out with Martin. Best recommendations - wouldn’t hesitate to reach out to him again!
Martin provided us with a challenging weekend that stretched and developed our skiing a lot. He was very responsive to our feedback tailoring the programme as we went. Would absolutely book him again.
Martin was incredible! From the pre trip preparations to managing all logistics while there - he made sure I had everything I needed, taught me alot, and importantly kept me safe! He truly provided a first class adventure.
We enjoyed this trip in the Alps very much!! It was an excellent introduction to mountaineering and the stunning peaks of the Alps massive. Our guide Martin made the full experience a succes; pushing us to the limits, keeping us safe at difficult rocky ascents, but also taking time to enjoy the scenery and the climb. Thanks a lot for the beautiful pictures too!
Excellent experience! Martin is a real expert guide and he managed to adapt the program even when the snow conditions were poor so that we still got to do everything we wanted. Very honest, reliable, and friendly guide. He's very education focussed so we came away from the holiday with a lot of new skills as well. Outstanding trip.
This was a great 4-day hut-to-hut ski experience in the Pyrenees. The national park of Aiguestortes is beautiful and we had a lot of snow. Martin is a professional and social guide. He makes sure that the trip takes place from a pleasant and secure way. Due to the weather conditions we couldn't do the climb to the Montardo and to the Ratera, but Martin organized some alternatives to enjoy the 4 days. We were an international group and could communicate with Martin in English.
Impresionante Martin....te hace alcanzar lo inalcanzable, con una sensación de seguridad increible. Un gran profesional
