Description

The Basque Country or Euskadi is a Spanish autonomous community, located in the northeastern end of the Cantabrian fringe. It borders the Biscay Bay and France to the north, La Rioja to the south, Cantabria and Burgos to the west and to the east, Navarre.

The Basque Country is a country of mountains. A place where the mountains are part of the landscape, surrounding its main cities: Bilbao, San Sebastian and Vitoria. Here, you don’t need to go looking for the mountains since they’re very close to the urban life.

The summits of the Basque Country’s mountains barely exceed 1,000 meters in height. However, they offer green corners of incomparable beauty.

During this 6-day trip you’ll find endless beech forests and meadows. And, most importantly, you will also enjoy the best mountain routes almost touching the coast. As you can see, the Basque Country offers a wide variety of options. Furthermore, they can be combined perfectly with the historical, cultural and gastronomic wealth of the region.

UIAGM/IFMGA Mountain Guide from Spain

I’m based in Bilbao, in the Basque country. This region has plenty of possibilities for mountain programs, which are not so popular, and I really like to guide people in the area.

And I also work a lot in the Pyrenees, which are just a 3-hour drive from Bilbao.

For me, to guide is to share an experience and a moment in the mountain.

The mountain is a place where to live and feel experiences that are hard to explain, but is also important to understand it: without a solid knowledge it is complicated to remain safe in a mountain environment. A guide won’t guarantee total safety, but is there to identify and manage risks.

The way I see it, a famous peak hides several unnamed peaks, which are probably more remote, less visited, but equally beautiful. So it’s important to know why is it that we go to the mountains.

Get in touch with me and I’ll be glad to guide you and help you discover the beautiful spots in the Basque country and the Pyrenees!
