Carros de Foc, in the Aigües Tortes National Park, is usually visited in the summer. But Xavi, IFMGA certified guide, can take you skiing in the winter!


6 Days

Feb, Mar


Why should we limit ourselves to enjoy a historical journey around the Aigües Tortes National Park only in summer? In fact, we can enjoy Carros de Foc throughout the year!

That’s right, the well known Carros de Foc **(**Charriots of Fire) hike can also be accomplished during winter and spring. And even more, ski-mountaineering along the National Park gives the journey a completely new experience filled with excitement!

The journey remains the same. We travel along the Park, from hut to hut, getting to know the classic Nine Huts which complete the journey. In each of them we will have a reliable and comfy refuge where to rest, have nice meals, and of course, try splendid Catalonian wine!

The Pyrenees have a different magic during spring and winter. A magic we can savour while skiing super fresh powder snow in a trail 55 km long and with 9000 m of vertical drop.

Due to the great slopes and continuously changing trails, we can reach some great summits with our skis!

Do you find this trip interesting? Then please contact me and let's start planning your next holiday! And if you are in Catalonia in the warmer months, we can also go hiking around the Pyrenees.
