Description

Ski touring near Barcelona? That’s right, join me in Val d’Aran, the hidden gem of Southern Europe located in the stunning Pyrenees mountains!

Here you can expect wonderful deep powder snow conditions with almost limitless ski touring opportunities.

A vast mountain range with peaks over 3000m, this region is as picturesque as you can imagine. Alpine forests, mountain lakes, and glaciers decorate the scene.

The local Pyrenees culture is lively and has a delicious cuisine, you can enjoy the charming town of Vielha with its restaurants and nightlife.

On this 8 day excursion, we will spend 6-days traveling hut to hut with one separate day designated for enjoying Baqueira Beret Ski Resort.

With variable weather conditions possible, I will select the most appropriate locations and route given the latest weather updates and the group’s preference.

The huts themselves are warm and comfortable, wholesome meals (inform us of any dietary requirements) will replenish you after long days out touring.

I organize both a pickup and drop off to and from Barcelona so that you don’t have to stress about your transfer here.

To join the trip you need to be able to carry a 10km pack for extended periods traversing over the mountains.

Would you like to visit the majestic Pyrenees mountains, spend 6 days ski touring from hut to hut and enjoy spectacular scenery in great company? Then sign up now because this is a remarkable opportunity and I can’t wait to share this experience with you!

About the guide

guide profile img

I love what I do and love to transmit my passion while guiding.

After touring the world fulfilling my dreams, I have put together all the knowledge gained and a strong background as a mountain guide to become one of the most versatile, dedicated and professional guides in the Pyrenees.

My resume has technical training in mountain medicine, snow studies, search and rescue complete training, meteorology and botany.

I spend the winters enjoying the unique snow conditions in the Aran Valley, as a ski touring and freeride Guide, and summers climbing the countless areas of excellent rock, either granite, limestone or conglomerate in the Pyrenees. I also spend a lot of time in Iceland during the summer guiding my friends and clients across these incredible landscapes.

While traveling the world, I make every effort to show the beauty of the landscapes, the quality of the rock and the best snow in the Pyrenees to everyone who wants to check them out.

Please get in touch with me if you want to discover the Pyrenees!
