Picos de Europa is a region with a well-deserved reputation as one of the best climbing spots of the world. This is your chance to climb its Mayara route and discover it for yourself!

The Picos de Europa (Spanish for “Peaks of Europe”) is a 20-km long mountain range part of the Cantabrian Mountains, in northern Spain. It consists on three massifs -Urrieles, Ándara and Picos de Cornión-, and its highest point is Torre de Cerredo (2650m).

Almost all of the walls of Picos de Europa are limestone, and the glacial action has contributed to create an impressive alpine karst. This beautiful alpine scenery, which usually has nice weather, offers lots of wild spots to discover.

On this day outing, we will meet in Fuente Dé and head up the Mayara, one of the most popular routes of the area. High quality limestone rock and awesome spires await us!

Please keep in mind that this day trip requires at least a 6a sport climbing level and some trad climbing experience. Of course, you will not be alone as I will help and guide you on the way. 

So, if you want to enjoy an exciting rock climbing day in Picos de Europa, please get in touch with me. Let me guide you through the stunning Mayara route!

Mountain Guide

Based in Picos de Europa (Spain). Born in 1982, at the age of three I had my first contact with the mountains when my family took me skiing at the ski resort near my home.

Ever since then, I practiced consistently, developing an interest in climbing, skiing and trekking. I had always felt a special curiosity and attraction for alpinism and winter mountaineering and ever since then I have enjoyed the continuous learning process, climbing up some of the most emblematic mountains in Spain and abroad (France, Italy, Switzerland, Norway, USA, Morocco, Patagonia…)

After a few years working as a computer engineer where I felt that every day at office was “a wasted day”, I decided to leave everything and go for what really made me happy, to continue my mountain guide education and to head in the direction where I really wanted to go rather than just dreaming about it. I wanted everyday to count and to be able to share and transmit everything that the mountains mean to me.

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.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



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.
