Description

I’m happy to guide you on this high mountain trek of 4 days through the Central Massif of Picos de Europa. We’ll spend 3 nights sleeping in the Collado Jermoso, Cabrones and Urriellu mountain huts. A really exciting adventure in the heart of the Cantabrian mountain range, Spain.

The starting point of this magnificent 4-day trek will be Fuente Dé, a town of Camaleño in the autonomous community of Cantabria. From there we’ll hike to the Collado Jermoso Refuge, the oldest hut in Picos de Europa located in a really beautiful place in front of the Torre del Friero.

On day 2 we’ll walk 9 km to reach the most inaccessible refuge of the trip: Cabrones Hut, located at 2034 meters of altitude. Our goal for the next day will be to ascend to the refuge of Urriellu through the Camburero canal, following the steps of the Cainejo and the Marqués de Pidal.

Finally on day 4, we will leave from Urriellu towards the Jou sin Tierri and Jou de los Boches to cross to Horcados Rojos, where we’ll have lunch at Cabaña Verónica. It’s a curious refuge built from the remains of an aircraft carrier. The final descent to Fuente Dé can be done by walking along the Jenduda channel or in the cable car if our legs have no more strength.

It’ll be a 40-kilometer-long trek discovering the most outstanding spots of the Central Massif of Picos de Europa. Of course it’s a physically demanding adventure only suitable for those with a strong fitness condition.

It’ll be my pleasure to be your guide in such an amazing hiking experience. Please contact me now by clicking on the green button. Send your request so we can plan this fantastic adventure in the Central Massif of Picos de Europa together!

About the guide

guide profile img

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.
