Alta Ruta de los Perdidos, renowned as the quintessence of Pyrenean trekking, takes you through ever-changing landscapes, from the southernmost glaciers of Europe to the captivating blend of waterfalls, woods, and rivers.

The trek is a circular route encompassing the lofty Monte Perdido and Vignemale massifs, traversing the national parks of both Spain and France.

However, the Alta Ruta de los Perdidos is a challenge even for the most experienced hikers. Its long stages demand exceptional fitness and hiking proficiency. The terrain includes steep and slightly exposed sections.

The route’s rigorous nature means that luggage transfer isn’t possible, adding to the raw and immersive experience of high-mountain trekking.

For those who dare to take on this adventure, our service ensures a seamless experience. We manage all hut bookings, provide round-the-clock support on the route, and equip you with GPS navigation and an extensive travel booklet.

Our commitment is to make your journey comfortable and safe, allowing you to fully engage with the wild beauty of the Alta Ruta de los Perdidos.
