    Let me invite you to a circular high mountain trek in which we can join the Aigüestortes National Park and Estany de Sant Maurici. 

    During this hiking traverse we’ll discover magical places like the Sant Maurici Lake, the Els Encantats mountain, the Colomers circus and the Besiberris massif. The only condition is to be fit and ready to walk several hours per day!

    This trekking expedition in the Aigüestortes National Park consists in 6 days and 5 nights. The region will give us amazing landscapes to admire. Endless high mountain lakes, granite summits, infinite valleys and forests. In conclusion, the mountain in its purest state. And to enjoy the experience even more, every day we will sleep in one of the huts nestled in idyllic places.

    About the Guide

     
     

    AEGM and UIMLA guide from Spain.

    I'm a mountain lover since I went up to Mulhacén at the age of 14. Since then I've been to mountains all around the world, always looking for new challenges.

    I like to share the love I feel for the mountains, and all what I learned out there during all these years.

    Some of my credentials:

    - Certified mountain guide for blind people (UNED foundation)
    - Wilderness Guide (WGA, currently in process)
    - Wilderness Advanced First Aid (WAFA certified)
    - Member of the Spanish Association of Mountain Guides (AEGM) and member of the Union of International Mountain Leaders Association (UIMLA)

    Regarding my experience, I've done ascents and trekkings in the Alps, Pyrenees, Atlas range, Andes, Himalayas and Norway. I'm originally from Granada, in Andalucía, so I know in detail the region of Sierra Nevada.
