Description:

The Aigüestortes National Park, located in the center of the Pyrenees between the regions of Val D'Aran, Pallars (Subirà and Jussà) and the Alta Ribagorça is one of the most important rock climbing spots in the mountain range. Given the successive glaciations of the Quaternary Era that covered the mountains with vast glaciers, we can admire the lakes, the waterfalls, the sharp peaks, the vertiginous crests and the valleys in “U” shape due to their erosive action. This offers the possibility of countless routes in granite rock in an environment of great natural beauty.

The program takes us to the most classic climbing routes and to the most emblematic peaks in the Park such as Peguera (2.982m) or Agullas d'Amitges (2.661m). You will spend 6 days climbing on routes of different grades and lenght to win the well-deserved rest in five of the twelve huts that are within the limits of the National Park. It is an exceptional experience.
