Trip Info

This is a demanding two-day trek through the high valley of La Vall Fosca.

Header of the Vall Fosca, ” the Dark Valley”, is composed of thirty lakes, of glacial origin.
Highlights Tort lake, Colomina lake or the Sea Lake, which are some of the most known and visited. We, during our tour, will see and visit many others that are protected from the eyes of most visitors and have nothing to envy the most famous. For example Francí Lake, Salado lake or Mariolo lake, to mention some.

Overnight in a mountain hut, called “the Colomina” where surrounded by wonderful scenery, we will have dinner, relax and recover energy.

The lakes area where we go deep, it is the gateway to the southern side of “Aigüestortes and Sant Maurici” National Park.
In this Alpine scenario, there are a large number of specimens of fauna as Pyrenean goat, marmots, snow partridge or bearded voltures. In the highest areas, there locate flora such as gentians, arnica or Rus’ path’s orchids, among others.

    Recorrido que engloba todas las expectativas puestas en esta actividad: paisajes fantásticos, itinerario poco transitado que me generó mayor grado de aventura, tramos físicamente exigentes y un precio ajustado.
    Respecto a Ramon, el guía, me generó confianza, cosa que valoro enormemente en este tipo de actividades. Su predisposición para que disfrutáramos del recorrido y sus conocimientos de la zona y técnicos, me parecen destacables.
    Sólo pondría un pero, y admito parte de mi responsabilidad pero, para los que no dominamos otras lenguas ¿ no se podría visualizar la web en otros idiomas ? Facilitaría la contratación de las actividades. Es una sugerencia.

    Zona Espectacular, estuvimos solos durante todo el recorrido,la dureza de la ruta fué amenizada por las extensas explicaciones de Ramon, el guía, sin duda conocía el terreno así como la fauna y flora de la zona…….Con ganas ya de repetir una nueva actividad con este grupo.
    Muy recomendable la ruta y sobretodo el guía.
