Highlights

  • Spend half-day snowshoeing in a beautiful natural spot in the French Cerdagna.
  • Discover the lakes and pools surrounding Lac des Bouillouses.
  • Contemplate the fantastic views from the nearby mountains.

Description

Situated in the French Cerdagne, Lac des Bouillouses is a lake that belongs to the Pyrénées-Orientales and reaches an altitude of 2,017 meters. In this stunning spot, we can spend a wonderful time with our snowshoes on and contemplate the amazing views of the surrounding peaks. Join me on this snowshoeing program and discover this fantastic spot.

The starting point of this activity will be the commune of Mont-Louis and we’ll meet at 9.30 am. From there, we’ll begin a 5-hour hike that will lead us around beautiful lakes and pools that we’ll find on the way. Some of the mountains that we’ll see while snowshoeing are Carlit Peak, the highest point in the Pyrénées-Orientales and Pics Pérics.

Although this program doesn’t require any prior experience to participate, take into account that we’ll cover a distance of 11 kilometers and face an elevation gain of 600 meters. Also, if you want to come with your children, consider that they must be over 10 years old.

So, do you find this activity exciting? Then get in touch with me by sending the request to book your place. You won’t be disappointed!

Another option could be this snowshoeing program that I lead to Rocs Blancs in Catalonia. Check it out!

About the guide

I'm a certified Mid-Mountain and Canyoning guide and a certified UIMLA Leader. I'm also a member of the High Mountain Catalan School (ECAM).

I have been working as a Mid-Mountain and Canyoning guide since 2008. My love for the mountains began at a very young age, as I grew up in the Pyrenees.

This passion eventually took me all around the world, including the Himalayas, the Andes, the Alps and Morocco where I travelled to practice mountaineering, rock climbing, canyoning, ski mountaineering, ice climbing, and mountain biking.

As a guide, my aim is to instill my passion for the mountains in you and that you experience it in the same way that I do: intensely and with minimal risk. Mountains are more than a job or an entertainment; they are a philosophy and a way of learning about life.

Everything was well-planned. The guide Raquel explained what we needed to do and made sure that everyone understood. The guide provided wetsuits, safety gear, and helmets. We had options to climb and jump, or opt on any climb or jump we didn’t feel comfortable doing. I traveled with my 21 year old daughter, 58 year old husband and self (age 60). This was our first canyoning trip. Beginner level, was perfect for us, and we did well. We loved it and I’m so glad we discovered this amazing sport! We did every jump and climb! Thank you Raquel for your guidance! Also your recommendations for other hiking and touring in the area! We did visit Rupit, Besalu, and São Paulo! I would definitely recommend this to those that are in reasonable good fitness and love the water and jumping into water!
