Come try this 4-day North Carros de Foc route experience. And enjoy this legendary route with Jon, a IFMGA mountain guide.


4 Days

Mar, Apr




Northern Carros de Foc ski touring route is the perfect program for those who want to get to know this legendary ski touring route but in a shorter amount of time!

Whether you think 5 days is too much or don't have the availability, this is a shorter version of Carros de Foc itinerary.

So, during this program, we'll devote ourselves to the northern area of Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici National Park. This way we'll cut down the number of days**.** But we'll still get to know the most interesting part of this beautiful national park!

This magical route was created in 1987. A group of mountain hut keepers decided to go across the park visiting the other eight mountain huts. From then on, this route became more and more popular. Today it is one of the most popular routes in Europe. It is possible to travel around it in many different ways. In this occasion, we'll go through seven of the nine mythical mountain huts while enjoying the best ski runs in the park!

So please contact me to explore this wonderful Northern Carros de Foc route and get ready for an amazing adventure!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
