This route proposes to cross the National Park through the Val d’Aran, Pallars Sobirà and Alta Ribagorça along the historical paths that cross the most beautiful areas of the park.
The route follows some paths that have been retrieved and signposted within the Camins Vius program, an initiative of Depana and the National Park.
If someone asks us about the most emblematic route of the Aigüestortes National Park and the Lake Sant Maurici, the vast majority will agree with the Portarrò d’Espot route.
This one-day itinerary takes you to two of the most significant places in the park, the Aigüestortes Plain and Lake Sant Maurici, passing through the great port of Portarró.
Camins Vius passes through the six valleys that shelter the current National Park of Aigüestortes and The Lake of Sant Maurici: Valls d’Àneu, Vall d’Àssua, Vall Fosca, Vall de Boí, the valley of Barrabés and Val d ‘Aran.
The route Camins Vius is designed for all audiences, both for those who want to have a week of intensive hiking and those who want to have a short hiking stay and at the same time enjoy the natural heritage.
The time to make the itineraries is extended throughout the year, although during the winter the highest passes can not be crossed because of the snow. Circular routes of 5 to 9 days can usually be done from June to October.
