Enjoy our Guided Hiking Trail Tour in Aigüestortes NP​ to discover one of the most beautiful nature areas of Catalan Pyrenees and the only natural space in Catalonia that has the “National Park” seal protection. Located between the regions of Alta Ribagorça, Pallars Sobirà, Pallars Jussà and Valle de Aran, it constitute the most beautiful and harmonious set of valleys, mountains, lakes, forests and meadows of the Central Pyrenees.

This guided tour is carried by an experienced local Guide from the park. It will let you discover the best and more accessible routes in the Aigüestortes National Park in 1 day. We will first visit the Boí area, through a 450 meter walkway of compact pavement that leads to the the Aigüestortes plain, an unique place surrounded by forests, meadows and water. Next, also in the Boí area, we will visit the viewpoint of Sant Esperit to enjoy spectacular views of the park.

We will continue to the oriental part of the park heading into the Estany de Sant Maurici. We will first visit the Pont de la Gorga footbridge, through a 450 meters walkway, which goes from the entrance to the park in Prat de Pierró (Espot) to the Gorga bridge. The itinerary runs through a beautiful fir forest and runs parallel to the Escrita River, which descends from Sant Maurici to Noguera Pallaresa, where it flows into Espot. Finally we will lead into the dense forest, by the edge of the Lake of Sant Maurici. Our tour will end with a lunch at a suggested local restaurant in Espot to try local specialities and keep learning about the park with your guide.
