National Park AIGÜESTORTES I ESTANY DE SANT MAURICI

The only National park in the whole of Catalonia

ocated at the heart of The Pyrenees, this is the only National park in the whole of Catalonia and it constitutes an excellent sample of the main ecosystems that we can discover in the Catalan high mountain areas. The park offers a unique landscape, shaped by more than 200 lakes and plenty of peaks, many of which overpassing the three thousand meters height. A wide range of activities can be held in the park the whole year round, such as itineraries for all levels, snowshoeing, ascents to peaks, exhibitions, lectures and more. The most popular traverse bears the name of “Carros de Foc” (Chariots of Fire) and it is a round trip that passes by all the refuges of the park and can be completed in one or more days, although in order to spend the night at the refuges and get the official stamp of the route a previous reservation is required.
