You need to ride the 4-wheel drive taxi to the park. You can choose an easy or difficult hike. Hikers seem quite willing to share the trail. If you are in Catalonia try to experience this park.

After exciting and bustling days in Barcelona, we spent 3 days in Espot, several hour drive from Barcelona. The drive was wonderful and mostly very seinic. This national park is a beautiful place with many lakes and flowers in summer. Also hiking trails are such that all kind of people can enjoy hiking here. We are seniors and my wife... More

Lovely park, great hikes. Possibility of staying inside park in several refugi. Just dont be disappointed to find out that you cannot swim in any of lakes. Also, some lakes are artificially adjusted, sometimes with great amount of concrete.

We did a one day hike from the entrance to the park up to the lake and waterfall. This was around 12.5KM, not the easiest bet well worth the reward of such a place.

Oh, this is one of the best trekking places we've been with the kids! Booking the refugios in advance, we didn't have to pack any heavy gear (tent, food, sleeping bags etc) so it allowed us to trek with light weight, just small pack with food/snacks for the day and a little water. The refugios offer basic sleeping in dormitories... More
