The opening of the mountain hut Cap de Llauset, in a strategic place of these mountains, gives us a multitude of options to make a circular tour around the Maladetas and to visit other mountains with many options for skiing.
During three days and two nights at the Cap de Llauset mountain hut we will make a high route around the Maladetas and also ascend to summits such as the Vallibierna Peak (3.058 m).
The Posets-Maladeta Natural Park is located to the north of the region of Ribagorza in the province of Lérida and northeast of Sobrarbe in the province of Huesca It includes two of the highest massifs of the Pyrenees: the Aneto (3,404 m) with other summits such as Pico Maladeta (3,308 m), and the Massif del Posets (3,375 m) with other mythical peaks such as Perdiguero (3,221 m).
In the Posets-Maladeta Natural Park we can enjoy the privilege of observing some of the glaciers that still remain in the Pyrenees, such as the legendary Aneto glacier in the Maladeta massif or the Llardana glacier in the Posets massif.
Valleys like Benasque, Chistau and Barrabés, offer us infinite possible activities for all tastes and seasons of the year such as trekking, ski touring, mountaineering and climbing.
There is also a network of shelters that are strategically located: Ángel Orús hut in the Eriste Valley, Estós hut in the Estós Valley, the hut of the Renclusa on the north face of the Aneto and Biadós refuge in the Chistau Valley.
In addition to the meadows, the forests of red and black pine dominate the forest, which sometimes mix with the fir tree. It is also possible to find holm oaks and some patches of deciduous mixed forests. In terms of fauna, it is possible to find grouse, martens, Tengmalm owls, snow ptarmigan, marmot or chamois among many other animal species
