It is an ideal area to hike with the family, particularly the circular route of Aigüestortes, which offers no difficulty whatsoever The area is accessible for those with reduced mobility. It is an itinerary of low difficulty but of great beauty, ideal for children.
For those who want to walk a little further, a simple route would be to continue to Llong Lake at 2000 meters above sea level.
