Basque Country

Cantabrian Mountains

1 Day

All year




  • Enjoy one or more days of great rock climbing in the Basque Mountains.
  • Choose from a number of great ridges and crests, such as Urrestei and Palomares.


Beautiful and vast, the Basque Mountains in Spain are a tremendous place to visit. They are also a great place to enjoy some unforgettable rock climbing, as there are a number of fantastic ridges to scale.

During this trip, which can last for one day or multiple days if you wish, I would like to guide you to the best ridges in the Basque Mountains. Some examples of the crests and ridges you can explore on this trip include the following.

  • Urrestei

  • Txindoki

  • Palomares

  • Pena Karria

  • Northeast edge of Anboto

  • Mugarra

  • Lekanda

  • Gokyo on Pasaia

  • Paso del Diablo on Alluitz

Each one of these ridges offer their own unique experiences and views. For example, the Urrestei ridge in the Atxarte Valley offers a thrilling and narrow final edge, while the Palomares Crest is a very long ridge that separates the Rioja Alavesa from the Alavesa Mountain in the Sierra de Cantabria. Needless to say, with such a wonderful variety, you will have no shortage of exciting climbing opportunities in the Basque Mountains.

To participate on this trip, you should have prior rock climbing experience in mountainous terrain. You should also be in good physical condition.

If you would like to join me on this incredible rock climbing trip, just send me a request. I would be glad to guide you on the best ridges in the Basque Mountains.

I can also take you rock climbing in the Pyrenees on this trip.



There are several comfortable accommodation options around the climbing sites that I would be happy to recommend to you.

About the guide

AEGM Mountain Guide from Spain

Passionate for mountains since I was a kid, at 14 I started climbing in Atxarte (Vizcaya) walls, thanks to some friends. Later I discovered other activities such as canyoning, skiing and ice climbing, which allowed me to enjoy mountains both in summer and in winter.

I travelled around Europe, USA, India, Peru, Marruecos, among others, with the excuse of climbing some peak, wall, or doing some canyoning.

I've been a member of the 'Young Alpinists Technification Team' of the Basque Mountain Federation, and after gaining experience in all mountain disciplines I left behind my job as electronic technician to become a guide in order to pass on my passion and knowledge to others.
