Carros de Foc, Pyrenees

Carros de Foc, the most beautiful trek in the Pyrenees with local Mountain Guide

From: € 500

The mythical Carros de Foc is the route that connect all the mountain huts of the Aigües Tortes i Sant Maurici National Park.

It is a good summer hiking program. Accompanied by a High Mountain Guide you will be able to make the Carros de Foc by climbing or not the most characteristic peaks in the area, depending on the program you choose.

If you wish, you can follow an alternative itinerary that will take you to the mountain huts on wilder and less frequented roads.

In the summer of 1987 some shelter guards made a walking route between the nine mountain huts in the Park in less than 24 hours, and one of them baptized this journey with the name “Carros de Foc”, thus the legend was created.

The route of only 56km and almost 9,000m of accumulated unevenness is very hard, but its location and spectacular views have made it the most prestigious circular route in the entire Pyrenees.
