Join me for a spectacular week hiking in the Spanish Pyrenees. For the duration of 6 days, we’ll explore all the best corners in the Ordesa and Monte Perdido National Park, in Sobrarbe.

The Ordesa and Monte Perdido National Park is one of the oldest national parks in the peninsula. Located in the Sobrarbe region, it is north of Huesca, on the border with France and very close to the Sierra y Cañones de Guara Natural Park. It is formed by 4 valleys and we intend to discover all four on this adventure: Ordesa, Añisclo, Pineta and Escuain. They are full of wonderful  rivers, waterfalls and forests. Furthermore, we might even explore historic sites and small charming towns. You can check the itinerary below for a more detailed description of what we’ll be doing each day. We can also try some rappelling if you want!

This is an intermediate level trip for people that can easily walk for 6 days. However, you don’t need to be extremely fit for this adventure. We can stop along the way as many times as you want either to enjoy the views or rest for a bit. We’ll also be using a car to cover some distances. Make sure to review the list of necessary equipment below.

So follow me for a wonderful week in the Spanish Pyrenees. Send your request and get ready to fall in love with the views of the Ordesa and Monte Perdido National Park!

What People are Saying about Pedro Gonzalez del Tanago

 

Pedro was so knowledgeable about the area, and graciously answered all our questions, even those unrelated to the hike. He was very kind in picking us up from Madrid for a small fee. He also took a bunch of photos of my husband and I during the trek, which I really appreciated since those are our only pictures together from our trip to Spain. I\'d definitely recommend Pedro to anyone traveling to Madrid and interested in experiencing nature outside the city.
