Fall in love with the wonderful landscape of the Urkiola National Park, Spain on this incredible hiking adventure. I’ll take you to the top of the iconic Arrietabaso peak in this beautiful national park near Bilbao. Join me!

For this adventure, we’ll follow a hiking path in the Dima area towards the top of the Arrietabaso (or Pico Errialtabaso) at an altitude of 1,014 meters above sea level. This peak is part of the Sierra de Eskubaratz and is part of the karstic landscape of the Urkiola National Park. First, we’ll begin at the San Lorenzo Hermitage. Then, along the way, I’ll teach you all about the history of the place, including the legend of the last bear in Viazaya. Additionally, we’ll also visit the Neberazar snow pit and learn about its historic use.

The hike covers 10.5 kilometers through forests and stony roads that we’ll accomplish in, approximately, 5 hours. It is an intermediate type of hike, perfect for participants that are looking to try a medium-size mountain. You can participate in this hike any time of the year and, on clear days, we’ll get to enjoy a stunning view of all the valley and the sea.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
