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!
