  • Stand at the top of the 3rd highest peak in the Pyrenees: Monte Perdido.

  • Follow a certified guide on this marvellous mountaineering adventure.

  • Get splendid views of the Cola de Caballo, Frozen Lake and the Ordesa Valley.


Monte Perdido (3,355 m) is the third highest peak in the Pyrenees. Also, it is one of the most iconic mountains in Spain. The Monte Perdido Massif has an exclusive membership at the club of the 3,000+ meters mountains, which makes it one of the most popular ascents on Earth!

Follow me on this incredible adventure to the summit of this majestic peak, located in the Ordesa and Monte Perdido National Park. And discover one of the last remaining glaciers in the Pyrenees, that lies in the North Face.

For this 1-day express ascent, we’ll take advantage of the bus services departing from Nerín. This is the ideal way for those with not a lot of time, that still want to live this fantastic mountaineering experience.

We’ll depart early morning, heading towards Cuello Gordo (2,200 m). From this point we will begin climbing to the Góriz mountain refuge, from where we’ll get breathtaking views of the dazzling Cola de Caballo cascade. Then, from the refuge, we’ll keep ascending until we reach the Lago Helado (3,000 m), a mesmerizing frozen lake. Thereupon, we’ll cross the Escupidera, which will lead us to the summit of Monte Perdido. Once standing at the top, we will get the most hypnotizing views of the Ordesa Valley, and the Pyrenees.

On our way down, we’ll stop at the Góriz refuge, to later continue until the starting point of our ascent. From there, another bus will take us back to Nerín.

Would you like to join me on this adventure? Just send me a request. I promise it will be an unforgettable trip!

About the guide

guide profile img

I started climbing when I was a teenager and have been in love with the mountains ever since. As I walked down from the Mont Blanc summit, I decided that I wanted to be a mountain guide.

I live in Benasque, a wonderful mountain village in the Pyrenees. It is the Spanish Chamonix. You have many different mountain activities to do here, with challenges for all levels.

I am mountain leader with UIMLA certification by the Mountain School of Benasque. I am member of the AEGM (Association of Spanish Mountain Guides).

I started guiding in 2007 and have been in the Pyrenees, Alps, Andes, Himalayas, Caucasus, etc.

There is no such thing as zero risk in mountain activities but I can assure you that your safety will be my top priority. Hire a mountain professional with experience and qualifications.

Would you like to climb the summit you have always wanted? Do you want to climb that mountain with a qualified professional who will focus on your safety?

Relax, enjoy the climbing and make your dreams come true! I´ll take care of the rest.
