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!
