Snowshoe outing in Prat d’Aguiló

Snowshoe outing in Prat d’Aguiló

 

This is a two-day snowshoe trip in one of the most beautiful places of the Pyrenees, in the area of Prat d’Aguiló (‘Aguiló Meadow’), in the region of Cerdanya. We will go to the mountain refuge of Prat d’Aguiló, at 2,020 metres. There we will have dinner and overnight, recovering energy to ascend the summit of Comabona (2,548 metres) the following day. We will reach the top after passing the pass of Gasolans, where we will make a short stop on our way to rest a little. Besides, we will take advantage of this little break to learn why this pass receives this! During this trip we will also learn some oddities of the flora and fauna of the natural area that surround us. Finally, and after reaching the top, we will come back to the refuge to rest for a while and afterwards descend to the car park, where we had left our vehicles.
