We spent a few hours walking through this area up to the lake and back. One could definitely spend the whole day here and even overnight in the refuge if you plan properly. It's the most beautiful natural park I've ever seen and I'm glad we made the detour to reach it.
You will be able to enjoy breathtaking views of some of the most beautiful spots in the Spanish Pyrenees. You can opt for going all the way up in a 'taxi' jeep or walk. The mountain top refuge is a must and offers good food. The walk down will take you through big natural lakes, waterfalls and wonderful landscapes.
We visited Aigues Tortes from Espot. To walk from there to Aigues Tortes you will get disturbed by many tourists who hire taxi's into the area, which is a shame for a national park. The nature is wonderful but mid August it is way too crowded. Also it is weird that the area contains a number of water reservoirs which... 更多
It is the best National Park in Catalonia. It has all different landscapes and environments you can find in Pyrenees, all surrounded by crystal lakes. Lots of Flora and Fauna to enjoy. Just a shame over the years more and more pleople go there for tourism and they are not very reapecful with nature. Still, the views you find there... 更多
We had the chance to walk around the park and enjoy the views of mountains, waterfalls and local flora. I wish we could have stayed longer and walked further. We had a wonderful guide whose love of her home added to our enjoyment.

Wonderful walk through granite mountains, through enchanting landscape of lakes and pines. There are well placed mountain refugi (huts) at 4-6 hour intervals after crossing intervening passes. These refugi are staffed, and supply - for a price - a mattress in a bunk room (beware snorers) and basic meals. This is a puzzlingly underrated walk, and most hikers seem to... 更多
We took the jeep taxi from Espot to the first stop at Estany de Sant Maurici. There is ample free parking in Espot just across from where the Jeeps park. The Jeep trip takes about 15 minutes. Sant Maurici itself is a beautiful lake surrounded by tall mountain peaks and lush forest. We then hiked around the entire lake, stopping... 更多
