Gran Vignemale, Pyrenees, Guided Ascent

Vignemale 1
Vignemale 2

In a day or more, IFMGA certified guide Javier would like to lead you to the summit of the gorgeous Gran Vignemale peak in the Pyrenees of both Spain and France.



+1 Day

Jan - Apr, Jun - Oct, Dec




Throughout the Pyrenees there is a wide assortment of great peaks. And on this mountaineering expedition you will get to scale one of those peaks: the Gran Vignemale (3,298m). This magnificent peaks rests on the border of both France and Spain, and is marvelled at by citizens of both nations. It is also part of two separate national parks: the Monte Perdido National Park in Spain, and the Pyrenees National park in France.

There are some interesting facts about the Gran Vignemale that make it even more impressive. Firstly, it is the highest peak in the French Pyrenees. And secondly, it is one of the few peaks in the Pyrenees that has a glacier.

Incredibly scenic, the views you will get of the Pyrenees during the climb and especially from the mountain’s summit, are spectacular. While this climb can be done in a single day, it is recommended to do it in one-and-a-half or two days. This will grant you more great views, and make the climb less strenuous.

The ascent of this great mountain is challenging, but not to an excessive level. Hence, you do not have to be an expert climber to reach its summit. But we will be using crampons and ropes, so you should have some prior experience. Furthermore, participants should also be in good physical condition to make the climb as well.

Have you ever wanted to climb a great mountain in the Pyrenees? If so, the Gran Vignemale is a fantastic choice. To join me on this climbing adventure, just send me a request. I would be happy to guide you.

I can also take you on this 2 day ascent of the Monte Perdido in the Pyrenees as well.

What people are saying about Javier


A HUGE thank you for all your help in the build up to our Monte Perdido attempt yesterday! Our guide Luis (from Javier's team) was absolutely brilliant and helped us reach the summit unscathed (despite the snowy conditions - which were apparently not ideal for amateurs!).



Luis was the guide Javier organised. He was very professional, guided us to the top (and back) seamlessly, set a pace that suited both of us. He also pointed out various points of interest. Would definitely recommend Luis. Also, Javier was very helpfull in providing information for another area I was visiting.



Great 2 days - better communications would be nice



We had a guide named David he was very very good and everything worked perfect. Can only recommend climbing Aneto :)



We had a fantastic trip. Our guide, Fernando, was amazing - he was very knowledgable about the area, extremely helpful and overall a great guy. Even though the weather was quite bad, this was one of the most amazing hike I´ve ever been on. Higly recommened the guide and the trip.
