Not specified

Cantabrian Mountains

1 Day

Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep




Located in the magical Picos de Europa in the Cantabrian mountains, the Pena Vieja (2,617m) is a spectacular peak.

It’s location makes for some of the most breathtaking views you will ever get from its summit. And the reason for that is you will feel like you can see into forever, as you gaze far out into the endless ocean stretching beyond the Spanish shore.

The climb to the top of the Pena Vieja will last one day. Hence making it the perfect addition to any vacation you may be taking to the Spanish province of Cantabria. Also, in the area near the mountain and the rest of the Picos de Europa, there is a great deal of wonderful restaurants and comfortable accommodation options you can choose from.

For the ascent, participants should be in good physical condition. And while you do not have to be a climbing expert to enjoy this trip, you should have some previous mountaineering experience.

We will be scaling approximately 1000 metres throughout the day.  As a result, you will get to see exactly why sailors who after months at sea marvelled at the sight of the Picos de Europa, where the Pena Vieja stood and continues to stand tall and proud.

If you would like to experience this climb for yourself, all you have to do is send me a request. It would be my pleasure to guide you. And I have no doubt you will have an unforgettable time.

I can also guide you on another climbing adventure at the amazing Penon de Ifach in Alicante as well.

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!
