Join me for a spectacular hike in the beautiful Pyrenees National Park crossing from Spain to France and back. Senda de Camille is the perfect hiking route to enjoy the mountain, its towns, culture and cuisine. You’ll love every moment of this 6-day adventure.

Senda de Camille is the route that follows the path of the Camille bear, one of the last native bears that lived in the area. It is a beautiful trek with stunning views of the Hecho and Ansó valleys and perfect for those who want to hike in the Pyrenees and Alps. Along the way, we’ll discover the impressive flora and fauna of the area.

This is an intermediate level trip for people that can easily walk for 6 days. However, you don’t need to be extremely fit for this adventure. The sections of the route can be done in 6-7 hours but we’ll be stopping along the way, so it will take us a bit longer. Make sure to review the list of necessary equipment below.

So come and follow me on this incredible adventure you’ll never forget! Book your place now and get your gear ready!

What People are Saying about Pedro Gonzalez del Tanago

 

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.
