Just a 4-hour drive away from Barcelona lies the spectacular Ordesa and Monte Perdido National Park. I invite you to follow me on this unique 6-day trek where we’ll explore the spectacular beauty of the Spanish Pyrenees!

Established in 1918, this Spanish treasure was the first protected area in the country. Today, it is still an indisputable highlight of the Pyrenees. Famous for its four deep canyons, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is known as the ‘Spanish Grand Canyon’. Located at 3,355 meters and right in the centre of this park, lies the limestone peak of Monte Perdido. By following the Monte Perdido route, we’ll discover this region’s magical valleys, thundering waterfalls, and breathtaking scenery.

Our expedition will start and finish in the charming Bujaruelo Valley, nestled on the banks of the Ara River. We’ll go from hut to hut, every morning we’ll have a new place to explore and every afternoon, a new place to rest and relax. The 6-day trip covers 90 km (or 56 miles) and every day participants will walk approximately 15 km (9 miles). Consequently, it is a moderate to difficult hike which requires a good fitness level.

This hiking tour is a great opportunity to explore the Ordesa and Monte Perdido National Park! So send your request now and get ready for this 6-day trek!

About the Guide

 
 

AEGM and UIMLA guide from Spain.

I'm a mountain lover since I went up to Mulhacén at the age of 14. Since then I've been to mountains all around the world, always looking for new challenges.

I like to share the love I feel for the mountains, and all what I learned out there during all these years.

Some of my credentials:

- Certified mountain guide for blind people (UNED foundation)
- Wilderness Guide (WGA, currently in process)
- Wilderness Advanced First Aid (WAFA certified)
- Member of the Spanish Association of Mountain Guides (AEGM) and member of the Union of International Mountain Leaders Association (UIMLA)

Regarding my experience, I've done ascents and trekkings in the Alps, Pyrenees, Atlas range, Andes, Himalayas and Norway. I'm originally from Granada, in Andalucía, so I know in detail the region of Sierra Nevada.
