Parque Nacional d'Aiguestortes

This is a very special area constituted of a mosaic of hundreds of lakes and patches of pines. Bivouac is not allowed, but there is a dozen of well sited above 2000m refuge-hotels. A beautiful round trip is possible in 4/5 days.

Lakes and lakelets, grass-fields and gentle peaks make the charm of this Parque Nacional.

From the north, a long bumpy dirt road gives acces to tracks criss-crossing Cirque Colomers.

It is not uncommon to walk by two dozens of lakes in a day.
