    Join me on this 4-day exciting trekking program in Picos de Europa, in northern Spain. Picos de Europa is part of the beautiful Cantabrian mountians. On this tour we will trek along the La Hermida Gorge.

    This program will take us to gorgeous mountain villages like San Esteban de Cuñaba, Tresviso, Bejes and La Hermida. In order to get there, we will hike on ancient trails used by the shepherds in this area already 3,000 years ago.

    We will also walk by and across beautiful beech, oak, oak and holly forests.  Another element that makes this tour different and special is spending the nights in remote cottages.

    Given that it includes technical passes, and the wilderness of the terrain, this program is not suitable for beginners.

    Groups for this program are private groups and between 4 and 10 hikers.

    The equipment you will need for this tour includes: three layer system clothing, lantern, proper footwear (trekking shoes or boots), thin gloves, food for each day, hat or cap, sunglasses, sunscreen, trekking sticks, thermal t-shirt and waterproof jacket.

    About the Guide

     
     

    My name is Andrés de la Torre and I´m on of the lead guides at Guías de Picos. I'm a Middle Mountain Sports Technician AEGM, deeply knowledgeable of the Cantabrian Mountains and Picos de Europa.

    Always thinking of new and different activities, the routes I propose are not limited to walking through beautiful places... you will remember the experience for life!

    With a degree in Digital Journalism, I try to organize innovative programs that value local resources and traditions.

    I can not conceive the mountain without friends and I believe that there is no better experience than a bivouac under the stars.

     
     


     

     

    What People are Saying about Guías de Picos

     

    There were a few organisational issues before we started, but for the most part they were resloved. The trip it’s self was absolutely amazing! And the guide was very good.

    Andres was the perfect guide, very accommodating and made the trip fun. Some of the trails were challenging but Andres motivated us and kept us safe throughout. We learnt a lot about Picos de Europa and stayed in some fantastic places. Would recommend to book with Andres.
