Guided hiking trails
Get ready to come with us to make the Carros de Foc, a classic among classics in the Pyrenees. Our guides will make you live an incredible experience in a dreamful environment
It all started in the summer of 1987, when some guards in the area spontaneously decided to go around the National Park of Aigües Tortes i Estany de Sant Maurici in a single day, just trying to do a simple courtesy visit to the other shelters.
This first visit was followed by others and in the same spontaneous way the name of Carros de Foc was also born.Even today, after so many years, we do not know exactly why or who was the inspiration for such a name.
Over the years the route has become the great classic of the Pyrenees, a must-see for all mountain lovers. The spectacular beauty of these landscapes is the only responsible for the thousands of people who travel its trails and crown its mountains year after year.
It is an activity for people with a good physical preparation.
The starting and ending point of the route will be in the little town of Espot. The total lenght of the route is about 75km and about 9000m of accumulated difference in altitude. During the stages we will visit high mountain lakes, spectacular peaks, a filmlike environment. Without a doubt a route that will surprise you for its spectacularity and beauty.
