The Hiking of the Three Parks Hiking

This six-day hiking expedition will take you through a string of national parks and nature reserves including the National Park of Aigüestortes I Estany de St. Maurici, Alt Pirineu National Park and Boumort National Reserve. While the former is home to alpine landscape and glacier lakes the later is a haven for native wildlife so keep your eyes peeled for wild fauna, deer and raptors. As you trek across the mountain range from north to south expect to walk between shimmering lakes, over imposing peaks and passed abandoned villages. Note, this route can be extended or shortened by 1 to 3 days.
