Yesterday, I went to a mountainous, green, gorgeous place called Urkiola, a national park near Durango, Spain. The excursion was organized by a “hiking specialty” subdivision of the Bilbao Couch Surfers chapter.
The “hike,” which was really more of a climb (for which we probably should have had actual climbing gear…), was both way more intense and way more awesome than I had anticipated. To say it was worth it is an understatement.
I whipped up this compilation of the video I took on our excursion. I wasn’t skilled/daring enough to film during the actual climbing part, but I got some footage of the beautiful Urkiola park, the peak of Anboto from afar (you will see it at 2:45 of the video…the high peak on the right) and of the views from the top of Anboto. Enjoy!
