PYRENEES: 3000’s and “Almost 3000’s” Peaks

Aneto, Posets, Monte Perdido, Vignemal, Balaitous…, are some of the best known of the 212 peaks over 3.000 meters in the Pyrenees. If we add to these the endless “almost 3000” peaks, we realise that there are mountains for a lifetime. In Mountain Guide Spain we are great lovers and connoisseurs of the Pyrenees, spending half of the year on its slopes.

With us, you can climb the mountain you want. We will help you choose the ascent that better suits your abilities and your way of enjoying the mountains. We can guide you on your first 3000 or we can help you climb those more difficult or inaccessible if you are completing your list of all three thousand. We can also accompany you to those lesser known peaks of “almost 3000” that can be even more adventurous than their bigger brothers.

In addition to the activity, we will take you on a tour full of knowledge about geology, botany and the landscape of the high Pyrenean mountains. We can also offer you truly unique experiences, such as doing them in two days with bivouac. Or we can even do a bivouac on some summit.

Call us! Speaking directly with a mountain guide you will solve all questions.
