Aigüestortes-Sant Maurici

National Park of Aigüestortes and Sant Maurici

The National Park of Aigüestortes and Sant Maurici is located at 40 minutes from the hotel through Espot via Sant Maurici. This is the most genuine representation of a mountainous area. The magnificient landscapes and views and the highly varied flora and fauna that live within the borders make this a truly unique location.

Ancient woods of fir trees and black pines are scattered around the park with nearly 200 mountain lakes. This is the habitat of the wild goat, western Capercaillie, marmot and the bearded vulture (also known as lammergeier).

For those interested in becoming better acquainted with the Park, the best excursions are el Camí dels Enamorats (the lovers path), la Roca de la Cremada (Burned rock), the Llong Lake, the track leading to the lake of Sant Maurici through the viewpoint and Amitges, This latest is highly recommended by our hotel. At the National Park of Aigüestortes it is possible to observe glacial phenomenons, such as the U shaped valleys and the mountain lakes. The landscape encloses alpine pastures, meadows and screes, and the lowest walls of the area are covered by woods of fir and pine trees. Some of the summits within the park are almost 3,000m high.
