1 Day

All year




The highest peak in the Pyrenees, Aneto (3,404m) is a fantastic mountain. And climbing to its summit is an unforgettable experience. And on this full day trip, which can be extended if you so desire, I would like to guide you to that magical summit.

Located in the Benasque valley, in the province of Huesca, Aneto is part of the Maladeta massif. It is a majestic mountain, made even more stunning by the enormous glacier on its North face. In fact, the glacier on Aneto, like the peak itself, is the largest in the entire Pyrenees.

Despite the size of Aneto, the climbing routes to its summit are relatively easy. Hence why it can be done in a single day. However, due to the altitude adjustments, if you are looking for a less strenuous ascent, I would suggest breaking the climb into two days. This will give you a chance to see more of the mountain because you will be climbing at a more leisurely pace. It will also give you the chance to spend the night in the lovely and comfortable Renclusa hut.

Along the route to the top of Aneto you will see a number of wonderful highlights. They include the Superior Portillon, the Collado de Coronoas, and the Mahoma Pass.

Participants should have some previous climbing experience, particularly on glaciers. It is also important that you are in good physical condition as well.

There is nothing like climbing to the top of the highest peak in a famous mountain range. So send me a request and lets climb to the top of Aneto, the tallest mountain in the Pyrenees.

I can also lead you to the top of the Pena Telera in the Pyrenees as well.
