Fantastic hiking this July in the Pyrenees

We had some spectacular hiking last month both in the Spanish Pyrenees and the Picos de Europa. Here are some photos and comments from our guests from our first couple of holidays this July.

Picos de Europa, July 1st-7th

In the first week of July, we spread our wings for a holiday in the Picos de Europa – a stunning set of mountains on the north coast of Spain. We hiked in the famous Cares Gorge, got high into the peaks using the Fuente De cable car and tasted the strong Cabrales cheese washed down with Asturian cider.

“Just as you think holidays cannot get any better, along comes Hike Pyrenees and all the wonderful and helpful staff!” (Stephen)

“Good walking in spectacular scenery with friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgable guides.” (Roger)

Discover Ordesa, July 7th-14th

Ordesa and Monte Perdido National Park is a must when you visit the Pyrenees. Different paths from the valley bottom to the highest viewpoints gave us a full perspective of this impressive canyon, but we also made it to the nearby Valle de Bujaruelo with amazing hikes for all levels.

Hiking Pico Bacias (2760m)

Last weekend I headed out to Pico Bacias, a wild rocky 2760 metre peak. I hadn't done this hike for ages and I'd forgotten how great it is. The views over Vignemale and across to the three thousand metre peaks of the Ordesa National Park are just exceptional. Joining...

The Mozarabic churches of the Serrablo

The glacial valley of the Serrablo stretches south from Biescas and is home to many beautiful Romanesque or Mozarabic churches and to one of my favourite cycle routes. The quiet country lanes have virtually no traffic and lovely views. The cycling isn't too strenuous,...

Out hiking again – Punta del Pacino

On Monday I finally got back out hiking in the mountains again and it felt wonderful! I went up Punta del Pacino with Ruby. It's a special walk for me as it was the first route that Anna and I did in the Valle de Tena and the day that we realised we'd finally found...
