The Góriz mountain hut

The Góriz Mountain Hut is one of the best-known huts in The Pyrenees and nestles in the heart of and Monte Perdido National Park. It is an ideal base camp for mountain sports and for climbing Monte Perdido by various routes (including the usual ascent) and for reaching other summits and sights: Cilindro, Soum de Ramond, Marboré, Casco, Taillón, Brecha de Rolando, the Casteret ice cave and so on. The hut lies on the GR-11 Trans-Pyrenees Trail and on traverses such as the Monte Perdido one.

Reaching the hut along the floor of the Ordesa Canyon is an experience in itself — the route is one of the most beautiful and awe-inspiring in The Pyrenees.

Building of the mountain hut began in 1961. The hut has now served mountaineers for close on half a century.

It is open and manned the whole year round.

The Hut Wardens are: Joan María Vendrell, Borja Fernández, Ibán Urbieta and Luis Muñoz but there are many more people in the hut team. In winter, the hut is usually manned by two people but in the summer there may be up to seven.

Where to find us

The Goríz Mountain Hut is sited in the County of Sobrarbe in Huesca Province, which lies in the Aragonese Central Pyrenees. It occupies a strategic position in The Ordesa and Monte Pedido National Park.

The hut is high in the mountains and so the only way to reach it is on foot. The closest villages are Nerín and Torla, the latter providing the main entry route to the National Park. Torla is also the last settlement before reaching the Pradera de Ordesa car park, from which one takes the usual hiking route to the hut.

Main routes to the hut:

  • From Torla: by car to Pradera de Ordesa (in Summer and at Easter and on the 12th of October Public Holiday [‘Puente de Pilar’], by bus), and from there following the GR-11 trail (4 hours). In winter, it is safer to take the Soaso route, with its iron pins and rungs on the steeper pitches rather than use the Camino de las Zetas route, where avalanches are an ever-present danger.

  • From Nerín: 2 hours on foot as far as Cuello Arenas (in summer, this may be covered by bus), and from there on foot, passing through Cuello Gordo and skirting the flanks of Sierra Custodia. The trek to the mountain hut takes about 4 hours. In winter, it is safer to take the crest of Sierra Custodia (this lengthens the journey by another hour).

  • From Pineta: Along the GR-1 trail, passing over Añisclo and Arrablo colls. (8 hours). This route should not be taken in winter.

  • From Bujaruelo: Along the GR-11 trail, passing through Puente de los Navarros and Pradera de Ordesa (6 hours). One can also reach the hut from Puerto de Bujaruelo, Refugio de Serradets [mountain hut] and Brecha de Rolando (8 hours).

  • Via Añisclo: from San Urbez, walking through the Añisclo canyon to Fuenblanca and from there, taking the GR-11 trail one ascends to Collado de Arrablo [Arrablo coll] to reach the mountain hut (6 hours).
