We will travel from Barcelona to the Posets-Maladeta Natural Park

“El Acebo de Casa Muria” will be our accommodation. In this tranquil, rural hotel, we will meet to discuss the programme and the objectives of the next day while relaxing with an appetizer.

Our week will begin by visiting the incredible “El Forau de Aigüalluts”, which is located at the foot of Mount Aneto, one of the highest mountains in the Pyrenees.

Day 3-4: Sierra de Guara/Aigüestortes National Park

Sierra de Guara’s limestone range consists of deep and rugged canyons that were created by ancient rivers and waterways thousands of years ago.
We will thereafter explore Mudejar and its historic Collegiate Cathedral.
A trip to this Somotano region would not be complete without a visit to a local winery to understand the process of wine-making. Somotano is well-regarded as one of the best “Denominación de Origen” (DO – designation of origin) regions for Spanish wine.
Afterward, we will explore the only national park in Catalonia, Aigüestortes and San Maurici. This area of stunning natural beauty is known locally as the “land of shimmering water”.
That afternoon, we will tour the ensemble of Romanesque chapels in Boí Taüll, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
