Weather:

-This trip is operated only in mountain areas, and rural areas near Natural Parks.
-The temperatures in summer are high during the day, with cool and pleasant nights. In Pyrenees towns with altitudes greater than 1500m, you have milder temperatures, and you can hike comfortably in high mountain trails, until 12:00. At noon in summer, the sun is strong in any part of the community. As you descend in altitude, and you go to areas of the Pre-Pyrenees, such as Los Mallos de Riglos, Sierra de Guara, Montsec, and areas of Teruel with moderate altitude, temperatures increase. Temperatures can range between 15º and 35º between day and night.

-Winters are cold, and snowfalls in high mountains begin in November. You usually can see some snow on the peaks, high valley areas, and alpine trails, until June and July, depending on the year. Temperatures can range between 5º and -15º, depending on the area and the altitude.

-In spring and autumn, temperatures are more moderate, with colder nights than in summer, and comfortable daily temperatures, when there is the sun.

-Depending on the area and the year, the rains can be quite irregular. It is recommended to always carry a raincoat, a waterproof cover for your backpack, and a hermetic cover for your mobile phone. It is really important, as in high mountain areas, rains in spring-summer, and snowfalls in winter, are normal.

What to bring:

-Comfortable clothing with short and long sleeves, and short and long pants, for hikes (fresh and easy-drying fabric).
-Sweatshirt or light jacket. In summer it is important to bring something warm for the nights, the early mornings, and for high mountain tours. At peaks between 2500m and 3300m, temperatures drop below 15º easily, and there are strong winds.
-In winter, it is necessary to wear warm technical clothing. At least 3 layers should be worn, such as a breathable long-sleeved thermal shirt, a breathable fleece-type mid-coat layer, and a windbreaker with a waterproof membrane. Long-leg technical mountain pants and technical trekking socks.
-Waterproof raincoat.
-Comfortable footwear for general use, and footwear suitable for hiking in the mountains, with non-slip sole. In winter hikes, it is important to wear rigid or semi-rigid waterproof hiking boots.
-Swimsuit, bath towel.
-Plastic/leather sandals with foot and ankle support straps. Essential for the practice of some water activities.
-Flexible suitcase or backpack, and small daily backpack (20l-35l) for walks.
-Insect repellent, and a small first-aid kit with the usual medication.
-Sun protection: cap/visor, sunglasses, sunscreen with a high protection factor.
-Flashlight or headlamp. A must for shared mountain shelters, and for night hiking tours.
-Binoculars: Optional. On naturalistic and animal watching tours, guides usually have it.
-Trekking or hiking poles: They are not mandatory, but the joints and knees appreciate it a lot on long hikes, with important slopes.

*Currency: The official currency of Spain is the Euro, and payments are only accepted in Euros. Credit/debit card payments are accepted in most shops and restaurants.

Sustainability

Ultimate Wild Trip is committed to sustainable and ecological luxury tourism, which promotes the development of rural tourism. Our vision is to offer unique naturalistic experiences with low environmental impact, combined with great community and cultural immersion.
When booking this trip, you are collaborating on the progress of rural economies, environmental protection, and the preservation of the local culture and its heritage.
There are studies that show when we increase connection with local communities, and the fauna and flora of the place visited, we get an exponential improvement in the customer’s travel experience.

-Ultimate Wild Trip offsets 100% of the CO2 footprint produced, both by our office and by our clients’ trips.

-We are the first tour operator to calculate and show you the CO2 footprint of all our tour packages during the booking process. And additionally, we allow you to offset it in different reforestation projects, in the neediest rural areas on the planet.
-In addition, we are committed to rewarding your environmental responsibility. If you voluntarily offset the CO2 footprint of your trip, Ultimate Wild Trip will donate the same amount to conservation projects, humanitarian causes, and community projects, of the destinations you visit.

Do you know the important benefits of planting trees?

-Your offset not only reduces polluting emissions, and slows down catastrophic climate change.
-By reforesting, you return the home to fauna and flora, which are in danger of becoming extinct in many ecosystems.
-The danger of flooding is reduced, due to the absorption of water from the roots of the trees, soil erosion is improved, and landslides are avoided.
-By planting trees, you stop the risk of desertification and avoid land degradation.
-In countries with famine and chronic malnutrition, food products derived from trees are a complement to agricultural crops and provide important micronutrients. Fruit trees are much more resistant to drought than agricultural crops.
-2.7 billion people live on less than $ 2 a day. Agroforestry and reforestation increase the productivity of the land, creating jobs and a secure and diverse source of income. Preserving the productivity of the land is key to avoiding massive migrations, economic crises, and humanitarian crises.

What C02 footprint does my trip produce?

To calculate the CO2 footprint of a trip, we first calculate the percentage of sustainability of the trip, based on the environmental responsibility of their suppliers. To this percentage of sustainability, we assign a coefficient or numerical value, previously reduced. Subsequently, we multiply this coefficient by the total gross emissions, and we obtain the calculation of the final net emissions.

-CO2 footprint to offset = 3.08 ton CO2

-Cost of offsetting the footprint in certified reforestation projects: approximately 32 euros
