Description

No matter if you are skiing on them, mountaineering on them, or hiking through them, spending time in the Spanish Pyrenees is an unforgettable experience. And on this 4 day, refuge to refuge, hiking trip, you will get to see this amazing mountain range in all of its glory.

Throughout this trip, you will hike for approximately 8 hours per day. However, the pace from which we will be trekking will be casual and relaxed. As a result, you don’t require any previous hiking experience. But you should be in good enough physical condition to maintain the pace.

The journey will begin in either Eriste or Benasque. After that, we will make our way to the Estos refuge. This refuge will be the first of the 3 refuges where you will be spending your nights in the Pyrenees.

Each day will find you exploring a new place within the Posets-Maladeta national park. For example, on the second day of the trip, you will be trekking through and admiring the Gistain valley. And on the third day of the trip you will get to hike to the top of the Posets peak (3,371m). From the top of the peak you will get to see the vastness and sheer beauty of the Pyrenees.

Hiking through the Pyrenees is a fantastic experience. The landscape is stunning, and the peaks are awe inspiring. And because we will be covering so much ground, yet covering it at a leisurely place, you will get plenty of opportunity to appreciate it all. To join this wonderful expedition, all you have to send a request.

Would you like to climb the highest mountain in the Pyrenees, the majestic Aneto peak (3,404m)? If so, then join me on this memorable adventure.
