Description

Join me on a magical hiking adventure that will take you from Spain to France and back to Spain again. Come for an unforgettable hut to hut trekking week on the iconic La Senda de Camille in the Pyrenees.

On this trip, we’ll visit the Valles Occidentales Natural Park, in Huesca, Spain and the Pyrenees National Park in Aspe, France. We’ll meet at the Refugio Lizara and follow a circular route that covers 104 kilometers! We will follow the route marked by the camille bear, one of the last native bears that used to live in the area. Along the way, we’ll visit places such as the Valle de los Sarrios, Collado de Petrechema, Collado de Lenito Bajo and perhaps also Mount Bisaurín, a popular mountain in the area, if you want to. You can check the itinerary below for a more detailed description of what we’ll be doing each day.

All hiking levels are welcome on this trip. However, you do need to be physically fit to enjoy this excursion. We’ll be hiking 6 to 7 hours every day covering long distances and steep slopes.

Sound exciting? Then book your trip to La Senda de Camille now! I promise you’ll love it.

And, if you are looking for more adventures in Spain, you can join me for a day trek in La Pedriza or a seven-day hike in Sierra de Guadarrama.
