The only national park in Catalonia and one of the better protected in the South of Europe, with peaks more than 3000 meters high, almost 300 mountain lakes varying in shape and color; rivers, ravines, water falls and marshes which make us feel truly in the land of water.
Aigüestortes and Estany de Sant Maurici National Park is one of the fifteen national parks in the Spanish State, and the only one within Catalonia. Located at the heart of the Pyrenees, it constitutes an excellent sample of the main ecosystems to be found in the Catalan high mountain areas.
In other words, we will find a great diversity of animal and vegetal species that struggle to survive in a harsh environment, all of which give life to this protected natural space, unique in the South of Europe.
All year round, during the four seasons, the national park offers a comprehensive activities program including guided itineraries by professional guides and interpreters, tours on snowshoes in wintertime, naturalistic journeys, exhibitions, lectures and contests which aim to promote the natural diversity of the National Park in order to further improve the protection and conservation of these privileged spaces.
