Our drive through the park afforded us some of the most beautiful views you could ever imagine. I only wish we had brought a picnic lunch along with us. Make time in your schedule to visit this park.

Most incredible nature site. Beautiful views. Will suit trackers and also familys. We went in by taxi to the second pool and walked down back to the first. Was a bit cold and snowed. Over all good enjoyable experiences.

Amazing place!!! Real mountains, opportunities for hiking. There are also taxis in the village who can drive you up to the mountains if you cannot walk. The hike is medium

Absolutely incredible park! My wife and I stayed in Espot and hiked the Estany d'Amitges/Refuge d'Amitges to Estany de Sant Maurici trail in late-September. It was a beautiful hike from top to bottom, and was really peaceful at the time of year we went. We...More

We're very excited to be there next week but curious if we should prepare for hiking in the snow. Will we need micro spikes and gators? Will we need snowshoes? If so, can we rent them? Thank You!!

Great plan, on the way back, the lowest stop there are very easy and flat wooded trails, you can ask to be there more than 20 minutes and catch a mother taxi down - usually they will say it's OK. Have fun !
