The maritime limestone pinnacles, dramatic gorges and verdant valleys of the Picos de Europa are wonderful walking country, harbouring a biodiversity that has been lost in much of Europe. Picos Rock and Snow offer guided mountain walking holidays, away from the well-trodden tracks of other walkers, with an English guide who knows the area like the proverbial back of his hand, allowing you to relax completely, to enjoy the spectacular scenery and your own endorphin rush.
Whether you'd like to bag peaks, scramble, stroll by flower-strewn hay meadows, spend nights out in the mountain refuges or take in the whole of the range on a hut to hut trek, we can guide you.
Picos Rock and Snow walking holidays are based on 3 basic grades -
Level 1 (Gentle and easy)
Level 2 (Moderate - Challenging)
Hut to Hut Treks (Moderate - Challenging)
Our holidays are best described as bespoke because these grades are simply guidelines for us to tailor walks suited to your abilities and aspirations. This flexible approach allows the first to book to have a choice between one or the other or a mixture of both. We will then plan following bookings accordingly.
Having lived for twenty-odd years in the Picos de Europa Mike, your guide, has so many walks up his sleeve that he prefers to plan day by day rather than having fixed itineraries, taking the weather into account as well as your own personal preferences.
Our walking weeks run with a minimum of 1 person to a maximum of 14, starting at the end of the winter season, generally sometime in April as the snows melt, continuing through to November when they return.
We offer generous discounts on group bookings! Contact us for more information.
