It is the best National Park in Catalonia. It has all different landscapes and environments you can find in Pyrenees, all surrounded by crystal lakes. Lots of Flora and Fauna to enjoy.

We had the chance to walk around the park and enjoy the views of mountains, waterfalls and local flora. I wish we could have stayed longer and walked further. We had a wonderful guide whose love of her home added to our enjoyment.

hi guys. From the upper parking lot (probably closed in high season, then you have to take the shuttle bus) you walk in 1,5 hour (we are 65+) to the lake. the walk is not always easy. But the walk is nice, the lake is beautiful. regards schliek

The park jeep takes you up the mountain and drops you off for your hike. Beautiful mountains, waterfalls, streams and lakes. Hourly jeeps back down to the town in the valley. Wonderful.

Wonderful walk through granite mountains, through enchanting landscape of lakes and pines. There are well placed mountain refugi (huts) at 4-6 hour intervals after crossing intervening passes. These refugi are staffed, and supply - for a price - a mattress in a bunk room (beware snorers) and basic meals. This is a puzzlingly underrated walk, and most hikers seem to... More

We took the jeep taxi from Espot to the first stop at Estany de Sant Maurici. There is ample free parking in Espot just across from where the Jeeps park. The Jeep trip takes about 15 minutes. Sant Maurici itself is a beautiful lake surrounded by tall mountain peaks and lush forest. We then hiked around the entire lake, stopping... More

Probably the best place for hiking in the Pyrenees. The lakes, the picks covered with snow, the coles (passes), it's amazing. Routes are marked very clear. Have a 1:25000 map and you can not get lost.

One of the best national parks i've been to. Well organized catering for all tastes and wishes: one can all walk or drive up from Espot into the park and hike there. We chose the later, getting with a LandRover to the first lake and from there hiking up to Ratera lake, the lookout point above it and then walking... More

This park is perfect for people who love hiking. Taking the Land Rover taxi up to the big lake is recommended, and from there you can walk short and long hikes to lakes, waterfalls and huts. It can be very hot during summer.
