Winter Stars in the Snow Whiteness.
Do you like to walk in the mountains in the summer? Do you dare to try it in winter? Snow, stars, forests and a solitary shelter await us on an authentic two-day winter adventure.
The adventure begins in a small village in the upper Pyrenees, a magical place where we will start our route. On it, we will learn to interpret the traces of the typical Pyrenean fauna, crossing great forests, white esplanades, until arriving at the solitary mountain refuge where we will spend the night. We will enjoy a good dinner, followed by the typical table talks, remembering the anecdotes of the excursion, beside the heat of the fireplace. At night, we will go on an “expedition” to contemplate the night sky, stars and constellations, and savour a tasting of typical spirits of the territory. The following day, we will climb a small summit where incredible views will be enjoyed and make our way back to the car and to the restaurant, where a good meal awaits us to finish the adventure.
