Guided hiking routes

Get ready to come with us to do the Carros de Foc, a classic among classics in the Pyrenees. Our guides are waiting for you to live an experience in a dream environment.

It all began in the summer of 1987, when some rangers in the area spontaneously decided to go around the Aigües Tortes i Estany de Sant Maurici National Park in a single day, just to pay a simple courtesy visit to the other refuges.
This first visit was followed by others and in the same spontaneous way the name Carros de Foc was also born, even today, after so many years, we still don’t know exactly why this name was given or who inspired it.

Over the years the route has become the great classic of the Pyrenees, a must for all mountain lovers and only the spectacular beauty of these landscapes is responsible for the fact that year after year thousands of people walk its paths, crown its mountains and that the name of unknown origin runs from mouth to mouth, CARROS DE FOC.

During this tour we will discover marvellous landscapes. This is an activity for people with a good physical preparation.
The starting and finishing point of the route will be in the town of Espot. The total length of the route is about 75km and 9000m of accumulated difference in altitude. During the stages we will cross high mountain lakes, spectacular peaks, a film-like environment. Undoubtedly a route that will impress for its spectacular beauty.
