Carros de Foc 30
Carros de Foc 12

Come with Jordi, a local IFMGA certified guide, to Carros de Foc in the Pyrenees and enjoy 5 days of pure hut-to-hut ski touring.


5 Days

Jan - Apr



Welcome to this 5-day ski tour during which we’ll visit the main huts inside the Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici National Park.

Carros de Foc represents one of the most classic ski touring routes of the Pyrenees. It is a must see for all mountain lovers. The route is 55 km long with an altitude change of 9,200 meters, which gives us great descents options.

Carros de Foc is a surprisingly beautiful place surrounded by large granite walls and woods with green pines. That is why Carro de Foc and the whole Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici National Park will allow us to enjoy the best lines, skiing from refuge to refuge, while admiring one of the most beautiful landscapes of the Pyrenees.

Every day will be a new beginning, in which we will look for the best ski descents and continue discovering all that Carros de Foc has for us. Please find at the bottom of this description, the complete day-by-day itinerary.

And if you want to discuss the program directly with me, feel free to contact me now! It will be my pleasure to help you ski in this unique spot of the Pyrenees.

Mountain Guide

UIAGM/IFMGA Mountain Guide based in the Pyrenees

I grew up by the seaside, but since the age of 9 I started going to the mountains. And since then, I never stopped.

I learned about freedom from philosophy, physics and maths, and then the mountains showed it to me.

I get new knowledge from forming new guides, studying mountain medicine, and training body and mind. But going to the mountains give me the reflexes.

From top level climbing, alpine style 8000s peaks, skiing and snowboarding, opening routes from the Arctic to the Antarctic, passing through the Himalayas and climbing in the desert and the jungle, from the Patagonian Ice to Vietnam: The important thing is not where you get, the important thing is to go.

I’m based in Benasque, in the Pyrenees, but consider myself a nomad. I just expect the rain or the sun rising every morning to celebrate nature’s cycle, and continue living as part of it.

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.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



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.
