High Mountain and Canyoning Guide

High Route of Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici National Park

It’s one of the most known skiing journeys in the Pyrenees and one of the first mountain skiing classical ones in this mountain range. It passes inside the Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici National park and, without a doubt, it will leave in us an amazing memory of this zone with plenty of lakes and placed between the Aran Valley and the Boi-Taüll and Noguera Pallaresa Valleys.

The wide web of kept shelters in the national park offers us multiple choices to perform the journey starting in different zones and make a variable number of days, also being a possibility to change the plan because of the weather conditions or give up through one of the accesses to its shelters.

We offer you a 5 journey plan that can be adapted to your needs so you can have an idea of what this place offers. Every day we plan a climb to a peak that will be done depending on the level and the aspirations of the group.
