The Posets-Maladeta Natural Park is located in the Aragonese Pyrenees, on the axial axis of the Pyrenean chain. On the first day we will reach the Angel Orus mountain hut, which will be the perfect place, by location, to spend the night. The next day we will reach the summit of Posets (3,369 m).
But here we will not have finished our adventure, since without a doubt, the descent of this mythical mountain is among the best of the Pyrenees chain due to the unevenness accumulated being one of the longest as well as the variety of terrain that we will cover.
The Posets-Maladeta Natural Park is located to the north of the region of Ribagorza in the province of Lérida and northeast of Sobrarbe in the province of Huesca It includes two of the highest massifs of the Pyrenees: the Aneto (3,404 m) with other summits such as Pico Maladeta (3,308 m), and the Massif del Posets (3,375 m) with other mythical peaks such as Perdiguero (3,221 m).
In the Posets-Maladeta Natural Park we can enjoy the privilege of observing some of the glaciers that still remain in the Pyrenees, such as the legendary Aneto glacier in the Maladeta massif or the Llardana glacier in the Posets massif.
Valleys like Benasque, Chistau and Barrabés, offer us infinite possible activities for all tastes and seasons of the year such as trekking, ski touring, mountaineering and climbing.
There is also a network of shelters that are strategically located: Ángel Orús hut in the Eriste Valley, Estós hut in the Estós Valley, the hut of the Renclusa on the north face of the Aneto and Biadós refuge in the Chistau Valley.
In addition to the meadows, the forests of red and black pine dominate the forest, which sometimes mix with the fir tree. It is also possible to find holm oaks and some patches of deciduous mixed forests. In terms of fauna, it is possible to find grouse, martens, Tengmalm owls, snow ptarmigan, marmot or chamois among many other animal species.
It is important to carry a light back to ski comfortable, so it is recommended to carry just light and indispensable equipment. If you don’t have all the equipment you can rent it, please consult us.

FLEXIBILITY OF DATES

TIME AND PLACE OF MEETING
One week before the start of the trip we will send you information about the place and time of meeting as well as the name and phone number of the guide that will accompany the group. In addition we will send more useful information that will facilitate the final preparations.
The activity includes accident insurance, but without any doubt, we recommend travel insurance and if you also hire "with cancellation" you will have more complete coverage. You can hire travel insurance for the period of time that the activity lasts or the annual insurance (starting the date that you decide) that will cover not only the activity you do with Muntania Outdoors but also many other sports activities you do during year.
With cancellation option means that, if you or a family member has some mishap before or during the activity, you will be entitled to the refund of the amount paid (or a part if it is already in the period of time that the activity takes place) both for the tickets and for the trip. In addition, through the travel insurance you will have the expenses for an early return covered.
* Travel insurance is managed with Intermundial and the cost is lower through Muntania Outdoors than if you manage it directly. The travel insurance with cancellation that we manage allows a refund of up to 900 euros for trips in Spain and up to 2.000 euros for trips abroad. If the amount of the trip plus flight is greater, you can increase the amount you want to insure (consult).
