I'd originally intended to plan my own trip and walks in the Pyrenees, but time went on, and the enormity of of the task sent me to Google to see if there was a guided walk I could join. I soon came across Trekpyrenees and saw a trip that matched my dates but it seemed fairly tough, I emailed Miguel outlining what I thought my abilities and weaknesses were and he assured me that I'd be OK. I don't regret this decision at all, without an experianced guide I wouldn't have walked to any of the fabulous places we went. I just wouldn't have had the confidence. He balanced the mixed abilities of the group well, adding in extra breaks and 'bonus' walks where needed. Everything from the pre walk emails, transport to and from Barcelona and post walk chat went perfectly.
My husband and I recently spent four days trekking through the Andorran Pyrenees with Miguel. Coming from Australia, we had no experience climbing to such high elevations so walking with Miguel really put our minds at ease on those high summits. Miguel was great company — so easy going and always with a joke. We had a fantastic time and will remember our trip with him as one of our highlights of our year-long trip through Europe!
On 21-24/6 I, along with two other amazing women from Barcelona, went trekking/ hiking to some massive peaks in Andorra, led by the experienced mountain guide Miguel. Throughout the 4 days, Miguel led us to 4 different peaks via paths that he obviously knows so well like the back of his hands. Along the way we had time to admire the different alpine flora and the beautiful landscape, long lunches on the summits to take in the views and chats. A very relaxing atmosphere on all days, which is helpful as some passes on some days were a little steep and strenuous. Not to mention Miguel's very calm personality and good sense of humour, both of which, for me, are very welcoming on big mountain days. Apart from having a good time, safety is also of utmost importance and with Miguel, you are already in good hands.
Contact with Miguel is very efficient. He's very responsive by email, all details organised at the moment you sign up to his tour, advices given on all sorts of things eg. packing and transportation. We were transported to and fro Barcelona and that's included in the price, which is indeed a VERY affordable price for four all-inclusive days.
This trip has opened my eyes to this small but wonderful country. I will definitely be back for more mountainy things and perhaps a bit of winter hiking and/or skiing in the future. A highly recommended guide to a highly recommended corner of the earth. Thanks again for the lovely memories!
Quatre dies, quatre pics per Andorra.
Una experiencia, hem fet el Cataperdis, l’Estanyó, el Besalí i el Casamanya. Exigent, lo just. La cresta de la baixada de l’Estanyó, va ser genial, vaig disfrutar-la molt.
Gràcies al bon temps i als coneixements de botànica del Miguel, varem disfrutar de totes, totes les flors, que vem anar trobant, era un gran jardi. Al refugi del Sorteny, bon menjar, molt ben tractats.
En fi, una experiencia recomanable.
Migual is very thoughtful and detailed orientated. During my four days trekking with him, he was extremely professional and informative on giving the crucial info about the trek and how to best prepare. He plans the daily logistics well, also goes beyond and above offering help in whatever way he could before and during the trip. I appreciated his consistency and genuineness in communication. Miguel really never fails in positivity the entire time!
Les ensenyances de Miquel han segut fantàstiques. En un matí he tingut mes vistes que en molts passejos en solitari.
De veritat es un bon guia.
Thank you Miguel for an amazing trek in Sant Llorenc National Park. We had a brilliant day and particularly enjoyed the non tourist route. As for the food at the Monestary....amazing experience. Thank you so much and we hope to return soon and see you again. We would be daft not to 😉😀
On very short notice Miguel stitched together and amazing early season 4 day mountain trek for us. Many of the huts had been opened just for us. Miguel was great to communicate with and made the door to door experience very simple. He also crafted a route that perfectly matched our skill level. I would recommend him to anyone looking to explore the wilds of Catalonia.
My husband and I just finished an amazing ‘customized’ wine tasting and trek through Priorat D.O.C/Montsant D.O and into Montsant National Park.
From my first contact with Miquel, throughout the planning, on site details and, business transactions, he was extremely professional and always went ‘out of his way’ to accommodate us —-including joining us for a quick stop at the Falset Wine Fair before the trip back to Barcelona!
Everything was prearranged, we didn’t have to worry about any details! - from; restaurants, lunches, dietary needs to luggage transport, translation and accommodations. ��
It made us very at ease for our entire journey.
Miquel has amazing energy, a wonderful sense of humour, ease with his work, and an obvious passion for being a mountain guide which made us very comfortable.
He took care of us during the journey through, at times, difficult terrain and, aided me every step - through my own uncomfortable height challenges�. He quickly adapted the next day’s walk more for my level and still make it a beautiful challenging experience. Fantastic! Thank you so much!
Our conversations were always lively but we also enjoyed quiet moments to marvel at our surroundings in the stunning vistas of Montsant National Park.
I really HIGHLY recommend Miquel as a mountain guide. His drive, mastery and love of the mountains, vistas and landscape was wonderful to experience through his guidance! No matter your skill level! (even a beginner like myself)
We truly could have spent days at La Morera de Montsant to enjoy the peace, quiet, vineyards, vistas and trails. It was paradise!
Miquel please thank your contacts at all the lovely villages - that welcomed us, from our tour at Vinicola del Priorat �Gratallops (Onix Tasting), Viella Alta (Lo Cupet/La Casa Rural) to La Morera de Montsant (Balco del Priorat).
We enjoyed their hospitality and accommodation very much.
Just back from the most amazing week of snowshoeing in the wonderful Catalan Pyrenees. Miguel is a fantastic guide who ensures you get the utmost out of your break. The Pyrenees is his back garden and his knowledge and experience is outstanding. He's very passionate about the area and the job he does and this comes over to all who have the fortune to spend time in his company. He takes you to places you would otherwise never see; you'll experience a peace and calmness that's very rare. I'm well travelled and an experienced walker but this is definitely one of the best holidays I've ever had. The Hotel Victor in Rialp is superb. It's a beautiful, clean and welcoming family run hotel. The food is excellent and they use local produce. The holiday was exceptional value for money and I will certainly recommend doing this to all my friends and family.
From start to finish, it was a great experience…. Miguel always responded promptly to my questions by
e-mail and WhatsApp, exuded professionalism and overall gave me confidence I had chosen the right tour company.
- The 2 hotels were great ( friendly stuff, very clean and lovely rooms with comfortable beds, delicious meals)
- Miguel was and excellent guide – caring, patient and always focused on our wellbeing and safety
- Some trails were challenging in parts but everyone completed them – we took breaks when needed ( it was never a race )
- Scenery is breath-taking
In a nutshell – if you're considering this trip, don't hesitate and make it a reality ....
I spent a wonderful 5 days with Miguel and 6 other adventurous snowshoers. We were well looked after, with great, untrodden trails to explore, fun extracurricular activities, cultural learning and great food. Thank you so much!
Have just finished a snowshoeing week with Miguel in the Catalan Pyrenees. I was highly impressed with Miguel's incredibly hard work to make the trip run smoothly and be so enjoyable. He is a delightful guide, quickly adapted the hikes and plans to suit the weather and always went the extra mile for us. I would highly recommend his trips. Hotel Victor was extremely comfortable and the food wonderful.What's more, the holiday was great value for money. What more could you ask?
I have just come back from an excellent weeks snowshoeing in the Catalan Pyrenees. Miguel was our guide and he is very passionate about the area. Miguel is full of enthusiasm and energy for his work as well as life in general. We learnt a lot about what life is like for locals in this remote part of the Pyrenees. I can highly recommend Miguel as a guide. He is good company and has a great sense of humour.
Just returned from an excellent week snowshoeing in the Pyrenees with Miguel as our guide. My first time snowshoeing and Miguel proved a very helpful and patient guide. Good accommodation, especially Hotel Victor in Rialp. Miguel provided some delicious cheese and wine tasting opportunities, which was a bonus. A wonderful area and Miguel provided lots of information on the region. I woukd happily travel with him again.
La excursión ha sido muy agradable entre los bosques de hayas, las vistas, la buena compañía y nuestro guía Miguel... un gran profesional, cercano, amable y responsable
Hasta la próxima!!! �
J’ai eu la chance de faire une randonnée à l’ermitage de Santa Magdalena de Cambrils, dans les Pyrénées, avec Miguel et un petit groupe de femmes charmantes. Miguel est un guide à l’écoute, il peut vous dire le nom de chaque arbre dans 4 langues et offre l’équilibre parfait entre randonnée dynamique mais à l’écoute de son groupe. Je referai une escapade avec lui c’est assuré! Il a aussi fait des ajustements à l’organisation du transport afin que je puisse me joindre à la randonnée, ce que j’ai grandement apprécié. Merci beaucoup pour la magnifique journée!
I have been hiking with Trek Pyrenees and Miguel several times. On one-day walks as well as multi-day hikes. Miguel has always delivered exciting hikes. Communication and logistics are always well handled. Highly recommend!
I knew nothing about the Priorat and Monsant region before I took a trek with Miguel - now I feel like I'm an expert! Thanks for the education Miguel and providing us with glorious weather all 3 days. I'm now back in cold and dreary Scotland (although the sun is shining today) and I'll be telling all my walking friends about this fantastic region and your expert guidance.
We felt like we were in safe hands in one of the most remote, beautiful and challenging parts of the Catalan Pyrenees. Miguel's experience, local knowledge and capacity to lead a group
is exceptional. So too, is his attention to detail and we also loved the 'extras' - visit to a trout farm and wine cheese and charcuterie tasting. Having a Spanish guide whose English is also
very good meant we had a true local experience. We thoroughly recommend any trip run by Miguel
We could not have had a better guide or better trip than we did with Miguel. He was very flexible, which was necessary as we were slower than most hikers. Also he was an interesting person & very good company. My husband & I would ewcommend TrekPyrenees to anyone
Spent an amazing week in the Pyrenees with Miguel. He was very knowledgeable about the routes, flora and fauna, and the way of life of the people in the region. One of the most challenging things I've ever done but incredibly rewarding (and the food was the best I've had in all of Spain 😢❤) 10/10 would recommend
