Highlights

 
     

    The Basque Country and Navarra, in the Spanish north, have a really high quality rock and a wide variety of sport climbing options surrounded by the most stunning landscape.

    Actually, three of the most important climbers in the world are from the Basque Country. Iker Pou was the third world climber to achieve a 9a-difficulty target in the region. Josune Bereziartua was the first woman to climb a 9a-route here. Patxi Usobiaga was also proclaimed world champion in high difficulty rock climbing.

    That is why I have planned this 7-day trip around the main sport climbing schools that the Basque Country and Navarra offer. Among them, we can visit:

    • Araotz,
    • Egino,
    • Etxauri,
    • Atxarte,
    • Mugarra,
    • Valdegovía,
    • Baltzola,
    • Atauri
    • Apellaniz.

    My idea is to take you to the best climbing sites so that you have the freedom to choose the most suitable option for you. It will also depend on weather conditions and the season. However, most of the climbing routes in the Basque Country and Navarra are available all year round.

    Regarding the itinerary, on day 1 we will have a welcome and introductory meeting in Bilbao. Then, we will go to Atxarte to enjoy our first approach to rock climbing.

    From days 2 to 7, we will enjoy many other tours in the best limestone spots. We can climb them according to the group’s wishes and preferences. I’ll lead a group of a maximum of 8 participants.

    The Basque Country is also a perfect spot to do some mountaineering. If you want to know more, please take a look at this 6-day mountaineering trip I offer in the region.

    It’ll be a fun and really exciting adventure in one of the most perfect places to practice or improve all your climbing skills. So please get in touch with me and make the reservation for your group!

    About the Guide

     
     

    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!
