An unforgettable 5-day ski tour on the roof of the Central Pyrenees by the hand of the local IFMGA mountain guide Jordi. A winter adventure you cannot miss!


5 Days

Jan - Apr


I have the immense pleasure of inviting you to this 5-day ski tour in the heart of the Pyrenees.

During this amazing trip, we will ski on the roof of the Central Pyrenees, reaching the "White Giants". They are the highest peaks and the deepest valleys of the region, always in company of the best quality snow.

The Central Pyrenees is an area that extends approximately between the summits of Somport, in the western part, and the massif of the Maladeta, in the east.

During this ski touring program we will have the opportunity to conquer the slopes of the Pavots, Posets Peak, Diente de Llardana as well as the Perdiguero and Maladeta. They are the most important mountains of the region. Of course, each goal will depend on the technical level and experience of the participants. The advantage of this program is that I can adapt it to the needs and expectations of the group, looking for the best lines for you.

Finally, let me recommend another hut-to-hut program I am also leading in the Pyrenees. Check out this 5-day ski tour in the Carros de Foc which can be also adapted to your ski level.

So, if you are planning to come to the Pyrenees next winter, get in touch with me. Please fill out the form so we can organize this "White Giants" adventure together!

Mountain Guide

UIAGM/IFMGA Mountain Guide based in the Pyrenees

I grew up by the seaside, but since the age of 9 I started going to the mountains. And since then, I never stopped.

I learned about freedom from philosophy, physics and maths, and then the mountains showed it to me.

I get new knowledge from forming new guides, studying mountain medicine, and training body and mind. But going to the mountains give me the reflexes.

From top level climbing, alpine style 8000s peaks, skiing and snowboarding, opening routes from the Arctic to the Antarctic, passing through the Himalayas and climbing in the desert and the jungle, from the Patagonian Ice to Vietnam: The important thing is not where you get, the important thing is to go.

I’m based in Benasque, in the Pyrenees, but consider myself a nomad. I just expect the rain or the sun rising every morning to celebrate nature’s cycle, and continue living as part of it.

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.
