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.

So, are you ready for an amazing adventure? Then just press the request button and I’ll take you hiking on a dazzling location.

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.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
