Description

Come join me to explore the best spots of the Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici National Park with this 4-day guided splitboarding tour!

The Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici National Park is located in the northern region of Catalonia, almost in the border with France. It is part of the Pyrenees and it is full of lakes and beautiful peaks.

The access to this park is quite restricted, except on foot, to preserve its natural environment. So we’ll find lots of untouched slopes, with pristine snow, waiting for you to ride them down!

This 4-day program will take you across the Aran Valley where we’ll climb different peaks over 2000 meters, such as the Montarto de Aran (2840 m) which is a beautiful peak with breathtaking views of the whole national park.

All along the way we’ll stay in charming and cosy mountain huts where we’ll relax and enjoy the quiet nights before going out again the next morning!

This 4-day guided splitboarding tour is a great way to discover the most amazing spots of the incredible Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici National Park, while enjoying memorable rides! Send me a request now and we’ll start organizing your trip!

Remember that skiers are also welcomed!

I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to Martin for his exceptional planning and guidance throughout our first trip to the Alps. Not only is he an incredibly friendly and easygoing individual to be around, but he also possesses remarkable climbing skills and serves as an outstanding guide who readily imparts his mountain knowledge and passion. Martin displayed an impressive level of flexibility when it came to our itinerary. He seamlessly adjusted the route for our initial climb to align with our learning aspirations, all the while prioritizing our safety. Even when an adverse weather forecast emerged for the final two days of our journey, Martin quickly managed the situation and found alternative, equally captivating solutions that allowed us to continue our climbing pursuits, all while making consulting with us. I wholeheartedly recommend Martin to anyone looking to explore mountaineering, whether they are novices or seasoned climbers in need of a guide. Overall, our trip could not have been more rewarding, and we are undoubtedly inclined to select Martin as our guide for our future escapades!

My son and I had a great trip to the top of the Gran Paradiso under the guidance of Martin Elorza. It was the first time to make use of explore-share and, like any system, you need to get used to it but it all goes quite intuitively. Moreover, there are system moderators in between the clients and the guides to ensure that everything goes smooth. If something in the system would not go as planned, they typically intervene quickly, such that one can be reassured. The trip itself was well planned and professionally guided. Martin gave a clear overview upfront and we communicated efficiently prior to the trip. Apart from being a very professional and experienced guide, Martin also proved to be a great person, such that we only have positive memories about our trip. The recommendation to go for the Gran Paradiso ascent (rather than the Mont Blanc) was a very good advice, given our beginner's level. Not sure when yet, but we look forward to a next experience!
