Pyrenees

7 Days

May - Oct

Description

The Pyrenees is a large mountain range that acts as a border between Spain and France. However, unlike many borders between many countries, this collection of peaks forms arguably one of the most beautiful natural borders in the world.

This 7 day adventure will take place in the Aigues Tortes national park, which is located in the heart of the Pyrenees. There is an abundance of memorable highlights within the park, including the Estany Llong lake, and countless climbing opportunities on peaks that include the Gran Diedro, the Punta Solitud, the Agulla de Dellui, along with many more. Definitely a trip for climbers who want to climb as much as possible, on this trek you will be climbing multi-pitch routes every single day.

This 7 day adventure will be tiring. It will also be challenging at many spots. Thus why participants should be in good physical condition, and have some previous mountaineering experience. However, every drop of sweat, every grunt after scaling another rock, will be absolutely worth it, as you will get to see from unrivalled locations just how amazing the Pyrenees is. And at the end of the each day, you will get to relax and rest in a variety of comfortable mountain huts. Each one of these huts has its own charm, along with its own views of the spectacular scenery surrounding it.

So send me a request and join me on this week long trek through the mesmerising Pyrenees mountains of Spain. You will definitely not regret it. And if you think 7 days isn’t enough, just ask me about the 9 day option of this trip.

Would you like to ascend Aneto (3,404m), the highest peak in the Pyrenees? If you do, I can lead you on this 2 day climb.

Mountain Guide

I love what I do and love to transmit my passion while guiding.

After touring the world fulfilling my dreams, I have put together all the knowledge gained and a strong background as a mountain guide to become one of the most versatile, dedicated and professional guides in the Pyrenees.

My resume has technical training in mountain medicine, snow studies, search and rescue complete training, meteorology and botany.

I spend the winters enjoying the unique snow conditions in the Aran Valley, as a ski touring and freeride Guide, and summers climbing the countless areas of excellent rock, either granite, limestone or conglomerate in the Pyrenees. I also spend a lot of time in Iceland during the summer guiding my friends and clients across these incredible landscapes.

While traveling the world, I make every effort to show the beauty of the landscapes, the quality of the rock and the best snow in the Pyrenees to everyone who wants to check them out.

Please get in touch with me if you want to discover the Pyrenees!

This was a great trip. The guide, Guim Llort (who works for Roger), was excellent. Highly skilled, competent, and a people person. As far as the technical climbing goes, everything went smoothly. The area is quite beautiful. The Refugios were good, but be ready for crowded dorm style sleeping. Many of the travelers, not associated at all with the Explore-Share trip, who were staying at the Refugios, seemed unfamiliar with hut etiquette such as keeping quiet when people are trying to sleep, and not understanding how to use the "red-light" function on their headlamps. Also, the food is pretty basic. I have some dietary restrictions; though these were accommodated, my choices were limited.

Trip of a lifetime. As with all things mountains, things didn’t go exactly according to plan, weather forced changes, us tired and slow clients forced changes and roger handled these in stride and adjusted the plans seamlessly. He knew when to push and when to back off. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the mountains, history and the local plants and wildlife. I had high expectations for the trip and it was even better than I had imagined, if you’re thinking of doing a trip with Roger, I highly recommend him as a guide in whichever discipline you prefer.
