Lakes and Mountains.
Come and discover the country of the water and let yourself be seduced by the more than 200 lakes that shyly hide in the National Park of Aigüestortes and Estany de Sant Maurici.
Located in one of the most privileged spots of the Pyrenees, it is an excellent representation of the main ecosystems that we can discover. Summits that exceed 3,000 meters in height; rivers, canyons, waterfalls and swamps that make us truly feel in the water country, where a great diversity of animal and plant species struggle to survive in a rigorous physical environment and give life to this unique protected natural space of southern Europe.
Its area of more than 40,000 ha. is divided between four regions that are home to a rich natural and cultural heritage: Alta Ribagorça, Pallars Sobirà, Pallars Jussà and Val d’Aran.
