The Posets-Maladetas Natural Park spans 33.267 hectares and is one of the biggest parks in the Pyrenees! It has lakes, rivers, mountains, glaciers, forests and charming Spanish towns. It is also home to some of the highest peaks in the Pyrenees, such as the Aneto, the Posets, the Cabrioules  and other impressive mountains such as the Salvaguardia.

We’ll also be using a car to cover some distances. Make sure to review the list of necessary equipment below.

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.
