Description

Do you want to discover all the beauty of the Pyrenees? Join me on this 4-day splitboarding trip in Monte Perdido and Ordesa National Park. Let’s unveil all the magic of this place!

This national park has four valleys and a central mountain massif. And it’s one of the most interesting and unique places in the Pyrenees. The views here, its flora and fauna, and the pristine and deep layer of snow that covers these lands every year, make it the perfect place for splitboarding.

If you decide to venture into this beautiful place with me, I promise I’ll take you to spots that will take your breath away. You’ll be surrounded by dense forests, transparent rivers and charming prairies. You’ll also reach gentle ascents and vertiginous ones. And of course, you’ll enjoy the best powder snow!

Moreover, I want you to have fun and be safe at the same time. That is why we’ll follow all the safety rules needed. We’ll also set the itinerary based on your skill level and the things you wish to do. For instance, if you are an expert snowboarder, I’ll take you to some challenging spots. And if you are a beginner, we’ll go to places where you can practice at a more comfortable pace.

If you are interested in this trip, you can find a more detailed itinerary below with some highlights of places we can visit each day. However, keep in mind, that it can change for circumstances out of my control. Or we can modify things based on your requests.

So send me a request, and let’s explore the Monte Perdido and Ordesa National Park. I’ll gladly guide you through this magnificent place in the Pyrenees.

Itinerary

Day 1: Gavarnie

We will begin our trip in Gavarnie, France. Then, we’ll head to the Sarradets refuge. Although Sarradets is fully serviced in spring, please note that during winter we’ll have to bring our own food.

Day 2: France to Spain

On this day we’ll cross from France to Spain. We can splitboard across the Brecha de Roland, a stunning mountain pass. If you want to try an easier route, I can take you to the Taillon peak (3,144 m). And if you choose this option we can snowboard down from its summit. But, if you want something more challenging, we can go for the Taillon and then the Casque peak (3,006 m). On both options, we’ll reach the Goriz refuge to spend there the night.

Day 3: Monte Perdido

We will depart from Goriz early, so we spend the whole day splitboarding up and down Monte Perdido (3,355 m). And for the expert snowboarders we can also go to Torre de Marboré/Gavarnie (3,009 m). Finally, we’ll spend the night at Goriz again.

Day 4: Goriz to Gavarnie

On our last day, we’ll return from Goriz to Gavarnie. We will splitboard across through Gabietos, so we can close a circular circuit

About the guide

The story begins when your parents put you the skis when you are still wearing diapers, when you discover every summer the lakes of the Pyrenees, and after that you start going for the summits. When climbing and the feeling of freedom that comes with it gets you hooked, and there's nothing you can do about it.

It continues when you choose your career following the name: Technical Mountain Engineering, in Lleida, close to the Pyrenees, and you start working as a ski instructor during weekends. And year after year, trip after trip, run after run, you start getting together with young mountaineers, and closer to the formation as a mountain guide.

Expeditions, trips, some award and the constant formation and evolution are what built this long journey, which allows me to share the world that I love with others. And thanks to the works as a guide I can enjoy everything: the great moments that the mountain gave me, in the snow, rock or ice, and above all the moving feeling of realizing how small we are in the immensity of the summits.

Had a wonderful week with Miriam in the beautiful Catalonia! Miriam was a fantastic guide and was very good at keeping everything safe, fun and sufficiently challenging. I only had minor experience with rock climbing prior to this trip and by the end of it I felt comfortable being lead on multi-pitch routes. I was very impressed by the beauty and diversity of Catalonia. In just a few hours of driving could the whole landscape can change completely. A perfect place for trying different rock types and to just enjoy the spectacular views!

Climbing in Catalonia was filled with a lot of sends and copious amounts of laughter. Mirium is a bad ass woman guide!! She is simply amazing! I had a wonderful time checking out diff crags in Catalonia and would def recommend this trip. If you want to explore diff crags in Catalonia this is for you!! Mirium worked around my climbing ability and recommended climbs that was fun but challenging at the same time. I had an amazing time and I loved Mirium as my guide!!

Miriam was a fantastic guide for me, and I felt completely safe with her. We had an amazing time climbing over two days, and she was patient, kind, and energetic. Go Miriam, keep climbing always! Also, Miriam is one of the few women guides in Spain, and I felt great about supporting her. Ladies - let's help each other continue to build our networks and businesses by investing in each other.

Miriam was the best guide I could have asked for. I did the 1 week Rock Climbing in Catalonia and had a fantastic time! Miriam is friendly, fun and supportive. She catered the trip to my abilities and I am so glad I went off the beaten track and decided to do this trip as I saw a beautiful side of Spain that I had never seen before. Thanks Miriam!
