Join us for the long weekend in the Spanish mountains, as we hike across the Peaks of Europe. It is a hiking route that starts and ends at De Fuente covering Cabaña Verónica 2325m, Torre de los Horcados Rojos 2506m and Torre del Llambrión 2642m
The Picos de Europa
Literally: "Peaks of Europe", often abbreviated in English to the Picos are a range of mountains 20 km inland from the northern coast of Spain, in the Autonomous Communities of Asturias, Cantabria and Castile and León; they are part of the Cantabrian Mountains. A widely accepted origin for the name is that they were the first sight of Europe for ships arriving from the Americas.
Torre del Llambrión
The "Torre del Llambrión", also known as 'Llambrión' is the second highest summit of the Picos de Europa range. If 'Torre Cerredo', with its 2.648 meters, is the highest mountain of the range, the 'Llambrión' is 2.642 meters, just 6 meters lower than the 'Cerredo'.

The Berlin High Trail – explore the Zillertal Alps.
On the Berlin High Trail you can breathe real pioneer air: up here in the secluded mountain world of the Zillertal Alps there was one of the most important germ cells of mountaineering in the early 19th century. The construction of the Berliner Hütte began as early as 1879 - making the venerable building, which would rather deserve the name Alpenpalast than Berghütte, the oldest refuge in the Zillertal Alps. Under the cooperation of the Berlin section of the German Alpine Association further huts were built. Already in 1889 the transition from the Berliner Hütte to the Furtschaglhaus was extended as a mountain path and then ceremonially opened as the first stage of the Berlin High Trail. Today you still hike from hut to hut on these old paths and enjoy the wild and romantic Zillertal mountain landscape just like back then.
In eight days and close to 85 km, it leads you through a breathtaking mountain scenery and reach an elevation gain of around 6,000 meters. On day five, you'll reach the highest point of this trail, that also features a few nice climbing passages: Schönbichler Horn, at an altitude of 3134 m.
More info to follow shortly - dates not confirmed yet - but most likely last two weeks of August 2022.
