So beautiful and great hiking. Try to make it all the way to the waterfall. It was about a 3.5 round trip with picture taking for us.

The basic trail is managable for all ages. Bring proper footwear for puddles, streams and water drainage from the snow. Savor the vistas; relax and leave yourself ample time to enjoy and not be rushed. The shuttle service with four wheel drives works quite well but factor that time in for getting there and leaving the reserve.

A chance to relax after some spectacular but gruelling walks,is offered at the Caldes de Boi,a baths fed by a 25 degree spring which probably dates back to Roman times. We followed our soak with a trip to Lake St. Maurici known as "twisted waters'. part of this trip route is done in a 4-wheel drive.

This region is characterised by water,more than 50 lakes,numerous waterfalls,marshes and bogs, not to mention,meandering rivers flowing along granite and slate formations. Its epic,scenic and ever so, beautiful. Ther are numerous guided or individual walks that you can assail against the magnificent 3000 m peaks,the most impressive of which bears the name of"the enchanted". this leads to the spellbinding peace of the darkly shimmering lakes,the coniferous and birch forests and the treeless meadow lands.

With little luck,we walkers were rewarded by seeing chamois,capercaillies,and mountain eagles,and a few mountain voles and marmots. We followed the broad Segre Valley,hardly noticing that we were at 1100 m above sea-level. the views of the mountains are incredibly beautiful,particularly in the evenings when their flanks are bathed in shades of red light. The precipitous North face is a veritable Eldorado for Catalan climbers.

Great place for families or for more adventurous guys. There are natural tracks for everyone, matching any hopes, any urges, any challenge, even for those needing a simple pleasant walk. there are many maps available in internet with well explained routes.

It is the only national park in Catalonia. The landscape is mountain with an impressive relief and a wealth of flora and fauna. The water, with almost 200 lakes and countless streams, is the protagonist.
