Mount Aneto ski mountaineering ascent, Spain

Mount Aneto ski mountaineering ascent, Spain

Not specified


2 Days

Mar, Apr, May




If you are an alpine climbing fan, Mount Aneto ascent is a must for you!

Aneto (3,404m) is the highest mountain in the Pyrenees Range and the third highest in Spain. It is located in the northeast of the province of Huesca, in the autonomous community of Aragon, four miles south of the French border. It forms the southernmost part of the Maladeta massif, within the Posets-Maladeta Natural Park (33,440.60 ha), in the Benasque valley.

Mount Aneto is one of the top mountaineering destinations in Europe. While its 12-hour ascent does not require advanced climbing skills, a good fitness level is important. The final stretch to the summit requires some challenging rock climbing, which you will successfully overcome with my help!

We will climb the Aneto using mountain skis, from the Renclusa mountain refuge, located at 2,140 meters, at the foot of the Maladeta massif, where we will spend the night. The route features beautiful green alpine scenery on the mountain’s hillsides and crosses a massive glacier (the largest in the Pyrenees), reaching a stunning year-long snow-capped summit, with a huge cross.

Join this memorable ski mountaineering adventure in the Spanish Pyrenees. Book your trip now!

If you are looking for other mountaineering tours in the area, I recommend the 2-day Monte Perdido ascent, the 1-day ascent to Peña Telera, and the 1+ day trip to the “Gran Vignemale”.

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.

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.

My guide was David Lombas. He was great, and set a challenging but achievable pace and got us to the summit on a day when no one else did! Thank you!

We had David as a guide. He did a great job. Unfortunately we were not able to summit because of weather



October, 2016

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!).
