Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici. An alpine landscape in the Pyrenees

Naturrouten
A variety of routes running through beautiful landscapes.

Located in the Lleida Pyrenees, the Parc Nacional d'Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici covers over 40.000 hectares distributed between four regions: Alta Ribagorça, Pallars Sobirà, Pallars Jussà and Val d'Aran. Valleys surrounded by over 3000 metres of mountains characterise this enclave which has two main entrances: Boí, in l'Alta Ribagorça, and Espot, in Pallars Sobirà. There are many different routes. One of the most highly recommended to start learning about the park is a visit to the Mirador de Sant Maurici, a route where you can admire the Estany de Ratera one of the more than 200 lakes and see a landscape of fir trees and black pine, dotted with waterfalls, home to animals such as the isard, marmot and the scavenger vulture, a fauna similar to the Alps. A longer route is the Carros de foc, a popular route amongst mountaineers that offers a full circular route to the nine refuges in the park, which are at altitudes of between 1900 and 2400 metres. To explore the area starting off from a considerable height, you can take the cable car that, from the Sallente reservoir, takes 15 minutes to climb to the Estany Gento, located at over 2000 metres.

An accessible park for everyone

To make the park accessible for the disabled, a special programme was setup that has eliminated the physical barriers of the terrain by building wooden walkways for wheelchair use. Likewise, several routes have been signposted that have been adapted for blind people.
