Carros de Foc guided trekking tour

A tour for everyone through the most breathtaking sceneries in the southern Pyrenees.

The Carros de Foc tour was the embryo of all the other treks that came later to the Pyrenees.

It has its origins around 1987, and since then, hundreds of hikers have made it every summer. And if it is so successful, it's because the experience is worth it.

We will enjoy spectacular paths and landscapes: lakes, rivers, waterfalls, hills, peaks, forests, all in a protected area that preserves that essence of our beloved Pyrenees has.

In addition, the network of shelters (all of them excellent) allows us to configure the trip according to our availability and physical condition: between 4 and 9 days, with a cumulative difference in level that can range from 5,000 meters to almost 9,500 mts.

In short, the Carros de Foc trek is a "must" for all hiking lovers.
