    About a 4-hour drive from Barcelona lies the Parque Nacional de Ordesa y Monte Perdido. This incredible jewel of a park is definitely off the beaten path from the more popular destinations in Spain. There are a handful of different hikes in the park, the most popular of which, el Camino de Soaso,...

    The famous Montserrat mountain has it all.  With climbs varying from easy single pitch trad routes to big sport multi pitches, Montserrat could keep a climber entertained for a very long time.

    Hike to Playa San Martin via Camino de Santiago

    1.5 mi
    You know those videos you see of people scoring epic waves in picturesque destinations with empty lineups. I can't promise epic waves but this adventure surely promises the same getting-lost and off-the-beaten-path feeling as surf videos represent. The journey starts in the small, deserted, beach...

    If you've ever been on an adventure in Europe you'd know that there is an overwhelming amount of trails and routes for hiking, mountain biking, cycling, climbing, and via Ferrata-ing.

    From Queralbs you'll be making a right turn at the harping left turn up towards the town of Queralbs. There'll be signs for Coma De Vaca. Drive down this road for about a mile where it ends at a parking lot called Daio. The parking lot in itself foreshadows the beauty of this hike with mountains ...

    Backpack El Camino de Santiago (Primitivo Route)

    190 mi
    El Camino is one of the most popular treks in the world. While there are a number of different routes you can embark on for this trek, I recommend the Primitivo route as it is a bit more challenging, and has both fewer people and beautiful views. This route technically begins in Villavicosa, but ...

  • Roncesvalles, Spain

    Explore the Forest of Witches via Camino de Santiago

    14 mi / 1500 ft gain
    Departing Roncesvalles with rested bodies was an unknown necessity.   As we picked up the path marked with blue and yellow arrows, my companions and I were promptly greeted with a dark and damp forest trail, with thick moss upon the stone wall.   I felt heavy, but not due to my pack or hiking boo...
