The route Estels del Sud makes a circular itinerary joining five refuges of the Parc Natural dels Ports. It is a walking route that runs between 280 and 1,250 metres in altitude, suitable for people in good physical shape who are used to walking in the mountains, as we are talking about 5 stages with a total of 98km and 4,200m of accumulated positive height gain.
The geology of the park is an enormous mass of calcareous materials that determine an abrupt relief. The massif is broken by various faults with notable overhangs and forms a spectacular karst system, with abundant caves, gorges, cliffs and holes. Among various animal species, the wild goat is almost exclusively found here. It is also home to one of Europe’s southernmost beech forests.
Accommodation for overnight stays between stages are mountain and urban refuges with catering and accommodation services, dining rooms and communal bedrooms.
