Located in the Pyrenees of Catalonia, the Carros de Foc trek is one of the most spectacular in Europe not only for its technical challenge but also for its impressive beauty.
The trekking has 56 km with almost 10km of accumulated difference in height, with 2,400m in average altitude.
Eight refugees are distributed throughout the trekking, all with a structure prepared for a challenge of this magnitude.

On the last day, we will go downhill by mountain bike from Beret, on the border with France, to Esterri d’Aneu.
