About the guide

My name is Andrés de la Torre and I´m on of the lead guides at Guías de Picos. I'm a Middle Mountain Sports Technician AEGM, deeply knowledgeable of the Cantabrian Mountains and Picos de Europa.

Always thinking of new and different activities, the routes I propose are not limited to walking through beautiful places... you will remember the experience for life!

With a degree in Digital Journalism, I try to organize innovative programs that value local resources and traditions.

I can not conceive the mountain without friends and I believe that there is no better experience than a bivouac under the stars.

Excellent. Guias de Picos guided us in his last trip because he will take new post in Switzerland. He did very good job. We all enjoyed the hiking although heavy rain in first day.

Andres was a phenomenal guide who made every day feel special and unique. Even when the weather was so bad we couldn’t go out he found a local oddity for us to go and explore based off of something I mentioned in the first day. I cannot recommend him highly enough!

Great first experience with snowshoes. The route is very scenic, with great view of San Glorio area. It is accessible for all levels, and it's really worth it. Andrés is a great guide and teacher, I hope I can do more adventures with him.

Excelent experience with Andrés as a guide. I booked the activity as my son's birthday gift, then did it again with a friend, and I'll go once again for sure... Andrés is an experienced, didactic and attentive guide. He adapts the route so you can enjoy 100% and be safe. He shares his love and respect for the mountains, and helps everybody to enjoy the trip. It's ideal to disconnect and recharge batteries.

We spent a great weekend in the mountains. We had pending the ascent of Urriellu peak, and on the summit, we improvised a wedding ceremony for our friends. The next day the guide made the wonderful choice of taking us to Boru peak. We were very well advised from the beginning, before and during the trip. There are thousands of things to do in Picos de Europa, so I'll be back for sure!

A perfect day with canoes during the morning, and e-biking in the afternoon, following Andres' routes. The equipment was first-class, and all our questions were answered on time. The weather was great, the views amazing, and we ended having dinner in a restaurant that had an unforgettable fabada. 100% recommended, and I hope I can go back soon!

I’d highly recommend Picos de Europa, and especially Andrés as guide. Beautiful scenery, authentic rural life and serious hiking. Andrés was really great - very helpful and fun. Don’t miss visiting his friend, Ana, in the village - best cabrales cheese and conversation guaranteed!

We went to La Hermida Gorge with Andrés, and I must say he is very professional, and also fun and easygoing. I'm sure we'll do more adventures with him!

We did a route on e-bikes and Andrés was our guide. It was so much fun, totally recommended for all levels! He showed us a sequoias forest, beautiful viewpoints, we did geocaching, went to an old mine, and even to a small cave. Andres loves nature and helps you appreciate every detail. For sure we'll do something else with him, he even recommended a great place for dinner, and reserved a spot for us. Thanks for all! 10/10

There were a few organisational issues before we started, but for the most part they were resloved. The trip it’s self was absolutely amazing! And the guide was very good.

Andres was the perfect guide, very accommodating and made the trip fun. Some of the trails were challenging but Andres motivated us and kept us safe throughout. We learnt a lot about Picos de Europa and stayed in some fantastic places. Would recommend to book with Andres.
