The Posets -Maladeta Natural Park is located in the Aragon Pyrenees, in the long central section of the Pyrenees and where we find the highest concentration of peaks over 3,000 meters. Highlights include the Aneto (3.404 m) the highest mountain in the Pyrenees, not forgetting the equally impressive Posets (3.369 m), Maladeta (3.312 m) and Perdiguero (3.221 m).
We present an ambitious 5 day High Level Route at the heart of the Pyrenees where we will conquer the three most sough-after mountains over 3.000m, we are referring to Aneto (3.404m), Posets (3.369m) and Perdiguero (3.221m). To achieve this, we will spend 3 nights at mountain huts, descending for only one night to the valley.
Don´t miss the chance to do this wonderful trip to the Pyrenees.
The Posets-Maladeta Natural Park is located north in the region of Ribagorza, in Lérida, and northeast from Sobrarbe, in Huesca. The park includes two of the highest mountain massifs in the Pyrenees: the massif of Aneto (3.404m) with other peaks like Pico Maladeta (3.308m), and the massif of Posets (3.375m) with impessive peaks like Perdiguero (3.221m).
At Posets-Maladeta Natural Park we can admire some of the glaciers that still remain in the Pyrenees, like the famous Aneto Glacier in the Maladeta massif or the Llardana Glacier in the Posets massif.
Valleys like Benasque, Chistau and Barrabes, ofer the visitor endless opportunities to do all kinds of activities all year round, like trekking, ski touring, alpinism and rock climbing.
It also counts with a good network of mountain huts strategically located: Ángel Orús Hut in Eriste valley, Estós Hut in the valley of Estós, La Renclusa Hut on the north face of Aneto and Biadós Hut in Chistau valley.
Apart from the green meadows, the landscape is dominated by forest of Scots pine (Pinus Sylvestris) and bog pine (Pinus Mugo Uncinata), sometimes mixed with firs. It is also possible to find forest of Kemes oak and some deciduous mixed forests. Among many other animal species, it is possible to spot capercaillies, pine martin, Tengmalm owl, ptarmigan (snow grouse) or the pyrenean mountain goat.
It is important to carry a light back pack in order to ski comfortable, so it is recommended to carry just light and indispensable equipment. If you don’t have all the equipment you can hire it, please let us know.
Aside from the regular travel trip dates, we are flexible to reconsider new dates if those are more convenient to the client’s leisure plans. Do not hesitate to contact us should you have any different dates in mind.
Time and meeting point
One week prior to the trip departure date, an email will be sent to each participant to give away the meeting point and time along with the guide contact information. At this point any information considered essential to the trip organization will be shared.
Changes in the itineraries
Subject to the weather conditions and the snow cover, the itinerary might change to make the route safer.
The sleeping arrangement is in share dorms. There is no need to bring a sleeping bag although silk or cotton bivvy bags are required. It is recommended to bring very little food since it can be purchased in the huts along the way. Slippers are available in all huts, so it is not necessary to carry extra shoes.
The selection of huts might change depending on availability. We will inform of any changes if this is the case.
The selection of itineraries can suffer changes due to bad weather conditions or other serious reasons. In any case, the guide will provide with the best alternative option.
The order of the itinerary can vary to adapt to the accommodation or attraction’s availability.
Any change in the itinerary caused by reasons not related to Muntania Outdoors (for example weather conditions) could incur an extra fee for participants.
