Route of the lakes in Vall Fosca - Aigüestortes National Park

Come explore Aigüestortes & Lake Sant Maurici National Park and discover the route of the lakes in Vall Fosca with our local guides.

The Vall Fosca (Dark Valley in Catalan) receives this name due to the lack of sunshine hours as it is surrounded by steep mountains. At the top of the valley, there are more than twenty lakes located at the bottom of peaks over 2,500 meters high, which are part of Aigüestortes National Park. The lakes in this valley form an ensemble joined by tunnels that are used to constantly supply water to two power plants.

The proposed route will first take us up to Lake Gento by cable car, and from there, we will go to Colomina Refuge. After spending the night in the refuge, the next day we will have the opportunity to visit the different lakes in Vall Fosca, to later start the return following first an old railway track and then the Pigolo path until reaching Sallente dam.
