Espot is one of the most beautiful and emblematic villages within the region of Pallars Sobirà in the Catalan Pyrenees and has long been one of the principal bases from which to explore the Parc Nacional d’Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici, Catalonia’s only national park. A 4x4 taxi service operates out of here to ferry walkers to the entrance to the park and a national park office (Casa del Parc Nacional) provides the necessary information and suitable maps to plan your trip.

The park itself provides a host of walking routes picking their way between awesome granite peaks and almost 400 lakes including variants off the GR11 coast to cost route. There is something to suit all levels here from the relatively simple mid altitude east to west traverse of the park through to challenging climbs requiring snow equipment.

Situated two kilometres above the village is the winter Ski station of Super Espot. At an altitude of between 1500 metres and 2500 metres there is a total of 31km of slopes to explore aimed at mainly intermediates with over half the runs rated as red or black. This resort is a favourite among skiers wanting to escape the crowds and has a nice family atmosphere in the typical mountain restaurants and lodgings. The slopes face the North-East and are surrounded by forests on all sides, lending the resort charm and pulling-power and making it one of the most privileged destinations in this part of the Pyrenees.
