Join UIMLA-certified leader Ramon on a 2-day hike in the Aigüestortes National Park in La Vall Fosca, the only one in Catalonia.
Mar, Apr, May, Jun, Jul, Aug
Hike in the beautiful high valley of La Vall Fosca in the Pyrenees, and experience Catalonia’s only national park. We’ll trek up mountains of around 2,000 meters.
The wild mountain region is home to the Flamisell river, as well as 32 lovely lakes of glacial origin. Fosca, meaning dark, gets its name from its tall mountain peaks that block a lot of sunlight entering the valley, especially in the winter.
This demanding 2-day trek involves visits to Tort Lake, Colomina Leak or the Sea Lake. These are some of the most well-known and visited lakes.
Along the way, we’ll see many other stunning lakes that are often overlooked by most visitors. These include Francí Lake, Saldo Lake or Mariolo Lake.
We’ll spend the evening relaxing, dining and recovering from our hike in the mountain hut of Colomina, which is surrounded by stunning scenery.
The alpine region is host to a diversity of fauna, including the Pyrenean goat, marmots, snow partridge and bearded vultures.
In the high altitude places, we’ll discover the local flora such as gentians, arnica and orchids.
The level of difficulty for this trip is acceptable for people aged 16 years old and over.

My father and grandfather taught me to love the mountains from a very young age. At 12, I did my first rappel... down the wall of the village church (the priest wasn't there). That's where it all started...
I'm passionate about nature, climbing, mountaineering and ski touring and have been calling the Lleida Pyrenees home for as long as I can remember.
WHAT DEFINES ME: Responsibility, discipline, gratitude, passion, respect
As a UIMLA-mountain leader, I have led trips and expeditions in America (Peru, US and Canada), the Alps, the High Atlas and even Ladakh (Indian Himalaya) and Yamalia (Russian Arctic). Since 2014, I am in charge of snow and avalanche training at ACNA (Asociación Conocimiento Nieves y Aludes).
I am also an accredited canyoning, via ferrata and kayak guide and Wilderness guide Level 2 in Arctic/Polar regions.
For me, guiding is not work: it is my passion. Each trip and expedition provides a new chance to discover and share what surrounds us. Respect for the environment, nature and local culture are at the basis of my philosophy of life, which I try to share with joy.
