I am the person who will guarantee you an unforgettable trekking experience.
But first let me introduce myself: my name is Miguel Ibáñez. I was born in Barcelona and for 5 years I have been leading treks in the Pyrenees.
I quit my job as an IT Manager in 2011 because I am passionate about mountains and meeting people.
When I gave up my job to devote myself to what I really love doing, it was a leap into the unknown.
However, I can safely say that I am now happy taking you off the beaten track to show you the undiscovered attractions of our mountains.
Snowshoeing trip - La Cerdanya - Catalan and French Pyrenees
5-day snowshoeing experience in La Cerdanya (France and Spain) with TrekPyrenees in early Spring 2016.
A group of 8 Londoners walked in Meranges, Gorges del Segre, La Bouillouses lake and followed the archaeological path in Eyne. We had fun, ate very well and visited a cave (Fontrabiouse) and a cheese-maker (El Molí de Ger).
Pica d'Estats (3,143m) The highest peak in the Catalan Pyrenees.
Challenging ascent from the Catalan side of the mountain. We had to cross over the border into France before we got to the summit. We started walking at 6:30 and finished at 17:02. 1544m of elevation gain. Multi-country team: 2 Norwegians, 1 from the Basque country, a Danish man, a British man and one Frenchwoman. An unforgettable day for all of us.
Following in the footsteps of Gaudi and Picasso in the Pyrenees
Geoff, Rachel and their son, Sam, came from Boston (USA) to follow in the footsteps of Gaudí and Picasso in the Pyrenees. They climbed Pedraforca (Geoff reached the summit) and also hiked in the Catllaràs range to see the Xalet de Catllaràs, designed by Gaudí in 1902, and the old coal mines in the area. On the last day we visited Artiga Gardens, also designed by Gaudí.
Carlit & La Tosa peaks - Two-day trip in the Catalan & French Pyrenees
I planned a weekend in July to climb Carlit, the highest peak of the Oriental Pyrenees, located in La Cerdagne. We were a lovely mix of people from different countries with the same aim: reach the summit of this challenging peak. First day we climbed La Tosa to get back into shape. How to describe the feelings from the summit!

Ascent to Pedraforca
An experience I'll never forget! Thanks for being a great leader Miguel and sorting us all out! You catered for each of our individual needs with your flexibility and determination (for pretty much doing the trek TWICE) to come back for Michael and I. I appreciate that. 😀 Muchas gracias!!
Miguel was a very good guide and knew plenty about trekking and the nature around us. We had a great 3 days with some fantastic routes, with a lovely group of people. We would definitely join Miguel for another trek sometime soon.
A great day out in a beautiful part of the mountains. Miguel is a great host and everything was perfectly organised with a really nice bunch of people. Highly recommend this trip for a reasonably tough day's walking with superb views over the Pyrenees. Important - don't forget your sandwiches x
Nice selection of routes, Miguel did his best to ensure good experience. Also, the trip was great value since it included most of the things. Will look out for other trips Miguel organises. Well don Miguel.
Extremely well organized! Miguel takes care of every detail from picking up participants to arranging a wonderful hotel--and SUPERB hotelier--as well as all meals and transportation to the beautiful destinations. It was a really lively and fun group and a memorable experience.
This was an outstanding experience. Miguel is a wonderful guide who clearly loves the Catalan Pyrenees. He almost seems to know them by heart. Although it was quite a tough hike - bad weather during the second half, with rain showers and wind - Miguel managed to keep high spirits, never hurrying or going too fast for anybody. And I'll come back some day, for sure! Gracias a todos por este día hermoso.
