Highlights

 
     

    The Pyrenees are a fantastic land of mountains and wild nature. They are divided in different sections. Within the Pyrenees, there is a valley of incomparable beauty: the Benasque valley. And, inside this valley lies a magnificent peak, the Posets Peak (3,375).

    Come with me on this amazing adventure to explore this peak and all the wonders around it!

    The Posets Peak is the second highest in the whole range of the Pyrenees. It is located in the Park Posets-Maladeta. And it offers a wide range of routes, some classic, some gentle and some more steep and challenging. It also offers dazzling paths and thrilling ascents.

    The Posets Peak is one of my favorite ascents. And there are many reasons for that. One of them is because it isn’t as popular as Monte Perdido or Aneto. Because, many folks don’t really know about the Posets Peak, they tend to choose other ascents. So, this means the paths here are normally more quiet and way less crowded. Thus, walking through them, you’ll feel like it is just you and the mountain!

    Another one of the reasons I love this place is the location and hospitality of the mountain refuges we’ll visit. They are located around the mountain, making a perfect circle. So we get to see everything, as we walk through it. 

    Please note that there will be certain parts of the ascent that come with a little technical difficulty. So we’ll go over the safety rules to ensure you are safe the whole time, while having a great time.

    If you are interested in visiting this amazing place, please send me request. Let me guide you through one of my favorite places in the Pyrenees.

I have extensive experience in mountain ranges around the world, from the Picos de Europa, my base and school, through the Pyrenees, the Alps, Patagonia, the Himalayas.

    I love mountains and nature in general and from my experience and supported by my training, I like to enjoy them and make my clients enjoy them as much as I do, giving them the security they need to perform the activity they want, interpreting the landscape , flora, fauna, ethnography, and promoting respect for nature and the environment where activities take place. I speak Spanish and English.

    From my company, Picos Outdoor, we organize activities of hiking, trekking, mountaineering, orientation, etc. and we offer introductory and specialization training courses (can be for groups and individuals) related to all the above.
