If you dont know how to get to the Urriellu hut, click here.

We will meet the evening before the climb in the Vega de Urriellu hut. The following day, we will climb and return to the refuge with enough time to return to the car in the afternoon.

If you plan to spend the night in the hut in summer, it is mandatory to make the reservation in advance as the occupancy rate is usually very high. The reservation is made only through the hut’s website. It is not necessary to book for the guide.
