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

UIAGM/IFMGA Mountain Guide from Spain
I’m a mountain guide and alpine ski instructor and trainer.
Since many years ago I enjoy transmitting the enthusiasm that I feel for the mountains, in any of the possible mountain disciplines: alpinism, ski, climbing…
I’ve always had a special interest for sports and teaching sports at all levels, from beginners to complex guiding in all kind of mountain terrain.

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.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
