Routes through the plain of Aigüestortes
The plain of Aigüestortes is a totally flat place, with forests, meadows and water, where we find a circular itinerary of wooden footbridges, adapted for wheelchairs and for people with functional diversity.
We propose three itineraries, the first one through the plain of Aigüestortes, a second itinerary that goes from the plain of Aigüestortes to Lake Llong, and a third route that goes from the lever of the Molina to the plain of Aigüestortes. All of them are itineraries of low difficulty but of great beauty, ideal to do with children.
Itinerary by plain of Aigüestortes
The tour begins in the taxi parking at the entrance to the plain of Aigüestortes, following the forest track. After a few meters we cross the bridge of Morrano and find a footbridge of 450 meters that enters us through the plain of Aigüestortes (1,825 meters). It is an itinerary adapted for people with reduced mobility and ideal for families with children. The distance of the route is 1.5 km.
There are different ways to get there:
By Taxi: taxis depart from Treio square, Boí (next to the church and the Casa del Parque) throughout the year (provided weather conditions allow it).
- Summer time: from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
- Rest of the year from 9.00 to 18.00. In winter the schedules are cut due to the weather, and there may be days when access with transport is closed.
? On foot: In private car you can reach the car park of the Molina lever, on the L-500 road, 2km before reaching Caldes. When it is full there is another car park at the foot of the road. From here, you can access on foot to the upper parking lot by the path of Lovers (20 minutes), and from there take the Otter route to Aigüestortes (2 hours).
By bicycle: You can reach the information booth of Aigüestortes, where there is a bike park. Remember that you must always drive along the forest track.
Itinerary of the plain of Aigüestortes Lake Llong
If you feel like walking a little more and continue enjoying this privileged environment, you can reach Llong Lake, which is 2,000 meters high. The path that takes us takes us along the course of the San Nicolás River, after passing the Grande plane and the Aiguadassi meadows. The route has 4.20 km, with a vertical drop of 160 meters.
Itinerary of the lever of the Molina to the plain of Aigüestortes (Route of the Otter)
We drive by the L-500 road towards Caldes de Boí to the parking lot of La Molina (1,381 m). On the right hand side of the information booth, the road goes to Aigüestortes (1,822 m), along the San Nicolás riverbank and runs through the lake of Llebreta, the Mirador de la Cascada and the San Espíritu map. In this case, the distance of the route is 6.30 km, with a difference of 430 meters.
