THE CABLE CAR
La Vall Fosca Cable car gives you the opportunity to experience the adventure of getting to the only National park in Catalonia –Aigüestortes and Estany de Sant Maurici–, 2,200 metres above sea level. In 14 minutes, you will cover a 450-meter difference of height.
From Telefèric 2.200, you can start a wide range of treks to the 32 lakes that make up this spectacular site, such as the 5-kilometre Carrilet green route, along the ancient railway –ideal to do with the family–, the ascent to the highest peaks (around 3,000 m) like Peguera and Montsent de Pallars, or the famous trek through all the mountain huts of the National Park, called “Carros de foc”.
