Not specified

Cantabrian Mountains

2 Days

Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep




The Naranjo de Bulnes (2,519) is a peak that demands your attention as soon as you see it.

Just one look at the magnificent Naranjo de Bulnes, that is otherwise known as the Picu Urriellu in Asturian, and you know you’re in for a climbing treat. It stands tall in the gorgeous Picos de Europa in the Cantabrian mountains. Dating back millions of years, this limestone tower, while not the highest mountain in Spain, is definitely one of the most known.

When it comes to which route we will take on this climb of the Naranjo de Bulnes on this 2 day trip the decision will be made based on your skill level and experience. So if you are a climber with plenty of experience, then you will get to pick any one of the great routes. However, even if you’re not that experienced, there will still be thrilling options for you as well.

The peak has four faces that you can climb. And each one of the faces is unique. As a result, each face presents its own set of challenges, and rewards.

The easiest of the four faces is the South face where you can take the La Directa de Martinez route. The North face has the oldest route, the Pidal-Cainejo, which has been in use since 1904. The East face has 2 ways to the top, Via Cepeda and the Amistad con el Diablo. And finally, the West face offers the Murciana 78, and the famous Rabada-Navarro route.

Climbing the Naranjo de Bulnes is a great adventure. So send me a request, choose a face, and enjoy an unforgettable experience.

I can also lead you to the top of the beautiful Pena Vieja peak on this 1 day trip.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
