Type of Trip
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.

About the Guide
My name is Vicente Reyes and I am an accompanying mountain guide or also called a Sports Technician in high Mountain qualified by the CFEM de las Rozas (Madrid) in 2016 and also holds the first level of Technician / guide titled in 2015 by EMAM (Madrid High Mountain School) and also associated with the AEGM (Spanish Association of Mountain Guides) with membership number 1073.
As you can see in each of our excursions, I am a big fan of the mountains, I love to breathe fresh air, enjoy nature in all its splendor, and escape from the stress of big cities, and consequently this love for nature and the mountain took me to get my degree as a mountain guide that I currently own.
I love being able to teach people what nature offers us, what we sometimes have so close to our homes, places so incredible that we do not imagine that they exist within a few kilometers, and also teach to respect nature and take care of it as she does do with all of us.
Among my other hobbies you can also check in our trips that I am a great passionate about meteorology and climatology, a hobby that as a mountaineer always comes in handy to foresee possible changes of time in advance.
Without more here I leave this little presentation about me and I hope we will see each other soon learning and sharing a nice time on the mountain. You will not regret it !!
