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
I just came back from my second hike with Miguel - this time we visited Cadí-Moixeró and it was terrific! Both trips have been with smaller groups, which gives the opportunity to make some new friends while enjoying the Pyrenees. I can definitely recommend trekking with Miguel!
From the very first email to the last second of the drive back from the Pyrenees back to Barcelona I felt like I was in good hands with Miguel. Miguel helped me with everything I needed including finding gear to rent, answering the many questions I had, and making sure I had everything I needed and more. I really felt like Miguel cared about me and the group on a personal level. Throughout the week he gave us trekking route options depending on the challenge or difficulty we wanted which felt very personalized. Miguel is very professional, experienced, and knowledgeable which made me feel safe and relaxed. I had a great time and loved every minute.
The hike with Miguel in Pyrenees in Andorra was great. Magnificent landscapes, well-planned and diverse routes, great company. Truly recommend!
Hemos hecho un trekking con Miguel en la vall del Sorteny - Andorra-. En Andorra solo había ido de compras y me encantó conocer este valle inmenso rodeado de picos de casi 3.000 mts. Tuvimos la suerte que nos hiciera un día muy claro y las vistas desde el pico de Tristaina fueron increíbles: el Aneto y su glaciar, la Pica d'Estats, toda la vertiente francesa por un lado y la andorrana por otro.
También pasamos momentos de relax en el refugio, jugando al Mikado y con el perro del refugio - que se lo comía todo!-.
Miguel was our local guide on a week long multi-activity family holiday. He had researched the activities carefully and planned the week with great consideration to everyone, especially the children (9 & 12 years). Where necessary, he used reputable local companies to support our biking and canyoning adventures accompanying us at all times. Miguel came alive however when taking us walking (3 different day walks across the area), explaining the habitat, geology and history of each place. He was well organised, communicated well with us all the time and demonstrated his love of the region. He continued to support us in the evenings by suggesting places to eat, giving us the choice to dine all together or on our own. Thank you Miguel.
I have been with TrekPyrenees 3 times now. This itself is a good sign of the quality of their hiking programmes. I have been to Pedraforca, Vall de Nuria and Cadi Moixero Natural Park. All of them were memorable and beautiful hikes. Miguel is an amazing mountain guide. He has good breadth of knowledge about the mountains, their biodiversity and variety in and around Catalunya. He interacts with every member of the hiking group. This makes him a really good hiking companion. I am self assured and relaxed whenever I go for hikes with him. I look forward to joining them again for another hike.
J'ai passé une journée inoubliable au Pedraforca avec Miguel, qui est un mec hyper sympa. L'organisation en avance, le transport, la randonnée - tout était parfait. Je trouvait super qu'il a choisi une route qui est un peu moins populaire et qui n'est pas plein de gens. Comme ça on pouvait vraiment profiter de la belle journée et de la tranquilité!
Il connait vraiment bien la région et nous a expliqué beaucoup des montagnes autour et de la faune et la flore.
Je suis certaine que je vais refaire une autre tour avec Miguel dans le futur!
Superbe randonnée 3 jours dans le Priorat.
Organisation sans faille. On a beaucoup aimé Miguel, professionnel, bien organisé . Il nous a fait découvrir une région en passant par des chemins que nous n'aurions pas trouvés seuls.
Nous sommes revenus ravis. Merci
Awesome hike. Pedraforca was beautiful and Miguel lead great hike offering advice on the hike and Spanish lessons 🙂
The tour was amazing, Miguel had everything planned and led a great hike up pedraforca. He gave us great info about the surrounding mountain ranges and good places to see on future hikes. He even helped my roommate and I learn some Spanish on the way since we are studying abroad and working on that.
Miguel took us on a tour of Aigüestortes national park over 5 days. Everything was organised to perfection - food, accommodation and transport. The area was beautiful and Miguel imparted his expansive knowledge of the local flora and fauna. The highlight of the trip has to be the final day climb to the summit of Tuca de Salvaguardia. Above the clouds on the French side and amazing blue sky views on the Spanish side. Great memories.
We were on a 3 days trip in the Alt Pyrenees with Miguel , it was perfect.
Miguel planned our entire trip in advanced , The program was suited to us
Miguel is amazing guide, knows the mountains, trails ,history, nature and the people of the mountains.
He is professional and he is a great person to travel with, in 3 days he become part of us , had a great communication with the girls(13,16,19)
He also connect this trip in the mountain to our people history of the holocaust by taking us in the refugees hard trail from France to Spain , it ment a lot to us .
A perfect view, A perfect guide, A perfect vacation in a reasonable price
Miguel was top. He knows the mountains very well, special quiet beautiful sidetracks and isolated stunning peaks. An experience mountains guide you can trust and enjoy spending time with 😉
We had a great time with Miguel, who was a brilliant guide. We pushed ourselves to the limit and experienced so many incredible things, such as seeing marmots for the first time, that we will never forget. As memorable for me as it was for my teenage boys
Miguel was an attentive guide who provided a varied programme of winter walks in stunning locations. In addition, he scheduled in some great restaurants, a thermal baths, a visit to a local cheese producer and an underground cave system. It was a spectacular holiday in a relatively unknown part of Spain - an enclave surrounded by France. Two countries for the price of one! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.
Great fun and experience. Definitely enjoyed Comabona peak the most (in the snow). Miguel is attentive, kind, highly knowledgeable. Nothing quite like witty banter at 2000M+
Thank you again Miguel, hopefully we can do another Trek in the future!
Along with my family, we spent 3 days trekking with Miguel walking in the Catllaras mountain range as well as climbing Comabona Peak. In spite of some bad weather during the first day's trek, we all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The scenery was wonderful and everything was well organised from start to finish. Miguel obviously knows the whole area very well and he was enthusiastic about sharing his knowledge with us.
This is a wonderful trek, from meadows and woodland to mountain peaks, with the ascent of Pedraforca as the climax. Miguel organised great accommodation and food, and was an excellent and informative guide.
I had only 5 days for trekking in September 2016 and I wanted it to be tough in the mountains, comfortable at nights, far from crowds. Miguel understood me without long discussions and offered a wonderful program in the region around Tavascan that suited all my wishes perfectly. I got exactly what I wanted. We met nobody on the trail , we enjoyed wonderful landscapes, every day I was very tired but ready for the next day adventure. Miguel is a delicate and intelligent person, a very nice companion. At the same time you get professional support whenever it is necessary . He knows every tree and every stone and every shelter that is difficult to overestimate in case of a sudden storm. I would recommend Miguel as a giude to every experienced trekker and I am also sure he would be perfect teacher for novices. Galina, St.Petersburg, Russia
We spent 5 fantastic days hiking the Pyrenees last September with Miguel and Franco (our fellow traveller, who was excellent company)! The first day was spent walking through some lovely villages while we “acclimatised” for our more challenging days ahead. We had some great walks through some less trodden paths and some days hardly saw a soul. Miguel entertained us on the walks by pointing out various flora and fauna and giving us the names in both Cataln and English. We really enjoyed being with a local guide as it was interesting to learn about the area including the food and traditions and to hear Miguel and Franco speaking with the locals in Catalan. The two hotels we stayed in were lovely and we were made to feel very welcome. Unfortunately we didn’t manage to climb Pica d'Estats as it was pouring with rain on the last day but Miguel took us on a less dangerous walk instead (needless to say, by the time we'd finished walking the sun was shining!). We will, however, be back in the future to have another go at the peak! A thoroughly enjoyable holiday but we have been missing the mountains ever since 🙁

Bonita experiencia la de este verano al Parque Natural del Alto Pirineo. Con Miguel es muy fácil hacer camino y sus consejos muy útiles. Espero volver a vernos.
"Un abuelo donostiarra".
Excelente ascensión al Taga. Miguel nos propuso una ruta que se iniciaba en Ribes de Freser y terminaba en Campdevànol. Después de la ascensión, que se vio recompensada por la ascensión al pico, nos esperaba un descenso por el bosque alejados de la multitud.
Miguel is fantastic! My family spent two days hiking with him and enjoyed both days thoroughly. He first asked me to Sykpe with him from the U.S. so that we had a chance to get to know one another in advance. I was impressed immediately by his good nature and professionalism. During our two days with him, he was helpful sharing advice, patient with my 11-year old son, good humored, and interesting to talk to (especially about Catalunya). Two thumbs up!!
Miguel is a great guide - he is both very knowledgeable and a lot of fun so you go on the best learning and laughing along the way. I would thoroughly recommend him

Amazing hike in great company on a lovely sunny day! Hiking with Miguel never disappoints. It was hard, but reaching the top of Puig de Bassegoda at 1,370 mt and seeing the incredible 360 views of all Catalunya made it so worth it! Ready for the next one! 🙂

I thoroughly enjoyed my first hike with TrekPyrenees. As a non-native Spanish speaker I found that everyone in the group was quite open to allowing me to practice my Castellano while helping me through the tough bits by speaking English. This is very comforting for someone who may have just moved here and/or has limited language abilities in Spain. Miguel is also very knowledgeable about the area, you can tell very experienced taking an interest in the planta and fauna as well as the landscape, and he put safety above all else which should not
— Mike O'Connell el 11-Jan-2017
TrekPyreness is a great group to discover and enjoy the mountains! We had a lovely trip to Saldaguda peak, peaceful and challenging. Miguel show us an amazing path off the beaten track and we learnt many things about nature with him! I recommend you all the experience!
— anna pinyol el 19-Dec-2016
It was amazing trekking experience. Miguel is a very good mountain expert and has in depth knowledge of geography and flora in the region.

Thanks for organizing!
— Gautam Gala el 29-Jun-2016

Thank you Miguel for being such a great and accommodating guide! The hike was tough but it was great! The view from the peaks were amazing. Love the hotel that you've booked with Fonda Merce, the host was so great with the rooms and all our meals. Thank you also for being so patient with most of us who had never used snowshoes / crampons.
— Nicole Lai el 31-Dec-2015

— Tish el 30-Dec-2015
It's amazing how much one can do in four days. Lovely break away from London with some amazing dramatic scenery .

Thank you for an amazing time.

This was yet again a very inspiring hike, with surprising views, magical spots, and off the usual well-known tracks. We enjoyed a wonderful day, balanced rythm, excellent company ! Thank you Miguel for guiding us to these new sites, thank you to the whole group for sharing such a beautiful day. I hope to see you again on another hike!
— Agnetta R.F. el 08-Jun-2015
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. Despite not making it to the summit, I had a great time. And I look forward to going on some more (easier!) treks in the near future! Thank you for your support, encouragement, and patience 😀 Muchas gracias!!
— Abby el 19-May-2015
A beautiful day in Pedraforca, perfect conditions to scale this emblematic Catalan mountain followed by a win for Barça! It was challenging and by the end I was the only girl! Thank you boys for ur patience especially getting down the tartera- to lluis and walter for waiting as I came down on my bum, and to Dan for carrying my bag.
— Tamsin Baker el 18-May-2015

Lovely hike, great guide. Highly recommended!
— Sheetal el 04-May-2015
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. To the group I must say that you are all lovely people. It was a pleasure to me - as an outsider who was on vacation - to meet you all. And I'll come back some day, for sure! Gracias a todos por este día hermoso.
— Dirk el 26-Apr-2015
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

Thanks for an amazing day, Miguel! Beautiful landscape, great company, and a fantastic first experience in La Garrotxa! The best part was the trail chosen by Miguel - hiking on boar-tracks through the forest, we discovered a new landscape and a new surprise at each summit! Most important, Miguel's goal is not just to "get there", but to help everyone enjoy the journey! Looking forward to the next one!

Great day out. We had to change our plans slightly because of unforeseen circumstances (too much snow) but Miguel found us an alternative route!

A five star experience. Thank you for the wonderful company. I will need "new legs"......joking!

Montsant came as a big surprise, the lines in the landscape seemed magical. But no doubt the company is what made this day so very special, each of you being so friendly and contributing to build a nice atmospere. Thank you and I hope we meet again!

Brilliant day in the Pyrenees on Sunday. We trekked up to a frozen lake from the village of Merangues/Meranges with Miguel guiding us. He was highly entertaining and very knowledgeable. i highly recommend this trip.

Miguel is a very reliable guide who led the group in a friendly way. I enjoyed this fantastic trek together with lovely people. Catllaras is a rural idyll surrounded by lush forest when we're hosted in a charming guest house with delicious food.

Miguel guided us on such a beautiful hike. Everything about it was wonderful--the pace, the "off the beaten path" location, the fellow hikers, and, of course, all the information about the flora and fauna and history of the land--in three languages! It is nice to meet someone who is a true appreciator of nature, TREES and the outdoor experience. His enthusiasm for the hike was infectious, and despite the somewhat cold weather, everyone in our group shared such a memorable experience. The next time I have a free weekend, I am signing up again--s

Fantastic day out with Miguel and a really great group if fellow trekkers! Really loved Miguel's short classes on botany and meteorology (and a little poetry thrown in, under a beech grove!) - exercise for the brain as well as the body! Great organisation, and a relaxed, fulfilling experience all round. I'm looking forward to the next time!

A fantastic day-hike with Miguel and the group. If all of Catalonia's mountains are as spectacular as this you could never tire of exploring. Miguel is a great leader, fun and very knowledgable with a passion for the area, but most importantly I felt total confidence in his management and awareness of the group throughout the day. This walk was absolutely stunning, but you probably need to some experience of shorter walks before taking on a long hike like this (7 hours, moderate to challenging). Thanks Miguel!

The day was spectacular to an interesting part of the Pyrenees, we all reached the Puigmal summit and descended via a different route. Miguel was very knowledgeable of the area and gave descriptions throughout the day of the region, plants and animals (we saw a lot of Pyrenean chamois). The day was well organised with a good group of people, topped off by a well earned beer after the trek. I would thoroughly recommend a trip with Miguel and TrekPyrenees.

I went to the trek to Andorra for the week-end. I am super happy. Guide was fun, opened, sociable and a fan of good rock. He gave nice explanations in English and Spanish about flowers and trek. Difficulty was ok, effort was by far worth while the views. Company was really nice. Absolutely recommended!!! 🙂
— Laura el 31-Aug-2014
I have enjoyed the trek to Pic de Bastiments and I would recommend 'Trek Pyrenees' to those people who would like to be guided by a professional mountain leader who adjust walking pace according needs of people in the group. \r\nThank you for a great day.
