Hiking in the Pyrenees

Travel tips after the World Retreat 2016

My wife Joy and I spent a week hiking in the Pyrenees last summer, in the Aigüestortes national park close to the site of next year’s World Retreat.

We took a taxi from the retreat centre to Cavallers further up the Boí Valley and started walking, following this route: Cavallers – Refugi Joan Ventosa i Calvell – Refugi de Colomèrs – Refugi Amitges – Refugi J. M. Blanc – – Refugi Estany Llong – Aigüestortes – and then a taxi down to Pont de Suert, to catch the bus for Barcelona. All in all a fantastic week, with not too long marches, but not too short either, and with a very varied scenery, and great weather throughout the week.

  2. We live just on the other side of the border, in the French Pyrenées, where we host Equine Guided Meditation Retreats, and I can certainly confirm that there is loads to see and do in the area!
