Welcome to Parc Nacional d'Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici & Around
Created by glacial action over two million years, the park comprises two east–west valleys at 1600m to 2000m altitudes framed by jagged 2600m to 2900m peaks of granite and slate.
The national park lies at the core of a wider wilderness area. The outer limit, the zona periférica, includes some magnificent high country north and south.
The main approaches are Espot, 4km east of the park and 8km from Estany de Sant Maurici, and the Vall de Boí, to the west. July and (especially) August are peak hiking season, but quieter September and October appeal more.
