We will meet in Barcelona at 9am, and from there spend 4- to 5-hours travelling to Tavascan. We will stop at 2 tiny, isolated villages: Arros de Cardos and Esterri de Cardos.
We will walk from Tavascan to the Ferrera Valley, passing by the Barborte Lake. We will cross the Barborte Pass. Total walking time will be of around 8.5 hours (15 km). A 45-minute drive will take us back to our accommodation.
We will visit 8 pristine lakes, including Romedo d’Abaix, Romedo de Dalt, Guiló and Colatx. The scenery is stunning!
We will walk during 8 hours although hiking time can be shortened if necessary. We will stay overnight at the Certascan Mountain Refuge.
After breakfast, we will head to the most impressive lake in the Catalan Pyrenees. Certascan is the largest in this region, and the surrounding land will expose you to historical shepherd huts – bordes – where cattle and feed were stored in a previous time.
This day is fairly lengthy, climbing 1,240m in elevation over about 7 hours before heading back to Tavascan for the evening.
OPTIONAL: For ambitious hikers, we can head for the summit of Certascan.
Once back in the hotel, we will enjoy some local wine, cheese and sausages.
A different hike from the previous days because 50% of the trails have disappeared. We will be walking on wild terrain. We may also be able to spot some chamois in Serra Plana!

On the last day, we will visit the most beautiful lake in the park, the Mariola Lake. You will remember this lake forever! The Montarenyo and Port Lakes are also in the schedule for the day and you may even get to swim in the first one. Total walking time is around 4.5 hours.
