Description

Situated between Ripollès and Conflent, in the Spanish province of Girona, Pic de la Dona is a mountain in the Pyrenees that reaches an altitude of 2,702 meters above sea level. Come with me on this half-day program in Catalonia and enjoy snowshoeing around this fantastic peak.

Our starting point will be the Vallter 2000 ski resort  at 9 am. From there, we’ll start hiking close to a stream and reach the Portella de Mantet col. Then, we’ll follow the route to Pic de la Dona, from where we’ll contemplate breathtaking views of the surrounding peaks. Finally, we’ll take the same trail to return and, if the weather allows it, we’ll go through the Coll de la Geganta.

Although it’s not mandatory to have prior experience, take into account that we’ll spend 4 hours snowshoeing, cover a distance of 5 kilometers and face an elevation gain of around 600 meters. Therefore, it’s important to have a good fitness level.

So, do you find this program attractive? Then don’t hesitate to send the request and make your reservation. I’m sure you’ll love snowshoeing around this beautiful peak!

There is also the possibility to go snowshoeing around the Vallter 2000 ski resort. Take a look at this half-day program!

About the guide

I'm a certified Mid-Mountain and Canyoning guide and a certified UIMLA Leader. I'm also a member of the High Mountain Catalan School (ECAM).

I have been working as a Mid-Mountain and Canyoning guide since 2008. My love for the mountains began at a very young age, as I grew up in the Pyrenees.

This passion eventually took me all around the world, including the Himalayas, the Andes, the Alps and Morocco where I travelled to practice mountaineering, rock climbing, canyoning, ski mountaineering, ice climbing, and mountain biking.

As a guide, my aim is to instill my passion for the mountains in you and that you experience it in the same way that I do: intensely and with minimal risk. Mountains are more than a job or an entertainment; they are a philosophy and a way of learning about life.

Everything was well-planned. The guide Raquel explained what we needed to do and made sure that everyone understood. The guide provided wetsuits, safety gear, and helmets. We had options to climb and jump, or opt on any climb or jump we didn’t feel comfortable doing. I traveled with my 21 year old daughter, 58 year old husband and self (age 60). This was our first canyoning trip. Beginner level, was perfect for us, and we did well. We loved it and I’m so glad we discovered this amazing sport! We did every jump and climb! Thank you Raquel for your guidance! Also your recommendations for other hiking and touring in the area! We did visit Rupit, Besalu, and São Paulo! I would definitely recommend this to those that are in reasonable good fitness and love the water and jumping into water!
