Description

Welcome to an unforgettable 4-day ski tour around the most outstanding places of the Aiguestortes and San Mauricio National Park!

The Aiguestortes and San Mauricio National Park is the unique state park located in the autonomous community of Catalunya.

During this 4-day ski touring trip, I will guide you through the Aran Valley. The great quality of mountain lodges of the place make it an ideal territory for ski touring and hut-to-hut expeditions. That’s why, after each skiing day, we’ll rest and spend the night in a different welcoming hut of the massif.

The Aiguestortes and San Mauricio National Park has a high mountain geography. In fact, much of its extension is above 1000 meters of altitude. It has summits that surpass the 3000 meters of height.

I have no doubts that every lover of the Pyrenees must know this place. Furthermore, the area has a great biological value thanks to its flora and fauna.

The large slopes of the area originate different ecosystems. That’s why we will find meadows, crops and deciduous forests in the lower level. Evergreen forests in the middle heights and, at the highest levels, meadows and high mountain rocks will surprise us.

The access to the Aiguestortes and San Mauricio National Park is quite restricted, except on foot, because the preservation of flora and fauna is exceptional.

So, I will be here waiting for you. Please contact me if you want to live a unique ski touring trip in a jewel of the Pyrenees!
