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.

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!!
