Activity description

The Aneto is the highest mountain of the Pyrenees. Its ascent has a strong significance historically for being a symbol of conquering the mighty Pyrenees. Standing at 3,404m, the Aneto's northern face is covered by the biggest glacier of the region.

Though the ascent fo the Aneto doesn't require a lot of technical expertize, you will need a good physical condition. This ski touring will take you off the beaten tracks of marked trails. The mountains promises you an impressive diversity, which means that there is, most of time, a sector that is exposed to good snow conditions!

The guides will take you on a two-day trip taking into account the weather conditions and your level. In any case, you will face the challenge of climbing the Mahoma Pass. There, you will have to change into crampons and face the mighty mountain, an experience that will be the icing on the cake.

During this ski touring excursion, you will be part of a group of maximum 4 skiers, so you will have customized advice and guidance.
