Trekking sections

Trekking over high mountain terrain, technically it is not difficult, although the terrain on which it progresses combines poorly defined trails with other very easy and winding ones.. It is divided into four stages. The approach to the Maupás Refuge and from this to the Venasque refuge is perhaps the one that requires paying the most attention due to the type of terrain on which it progresses.. In summer there is a bus service from Besurta to Llanos de Hospital.

If you prefer, speak with us.
