PYRENEES: Carros de Foc haute route with Skis

When you have spent many years in the mountains the landscapes and experiences lived are diluted in memories, some of them even become blurred. But there are some experiences that, even if they happened many years ago, remain solid and indelible in memory.

This is what happens with this magnificent Haute Route of the Pyrenees, Carros de Foc, located in Aigües-Tortes i Sant Maurici National Park.

Doing it on skis, saving distances, has something of a trip through the Canadian Rockies. Each col gives sight to new valleys, and in each valley we’ll cross a bunch of  mountain lakes, punctuated by pine groves twisted by the wind and snowfall, valleys that will lead us to new huts where rest and eat, and so every day.

Do not hesitate, doing Carros de Foc with skis will be like carving one of your best mountain memories, forever.

  • Medium Ski level on non treated snow.
  • Good physical condition. Been able to do several touring ski days in a row.
  • Medium for the ascents as well as descents.
