Colomers Lakes Route (Aran Valley)

5 reviews of Colomers Lakes Route (Aran Valley)



High up lakes, distant from civilization, excepting the moderate amount of people visiting it. Nature in its purest form, with two trekking routes: one that is 4 hours long and the other which is a little longer that share the same starting point and the end of the other route, bordering 7 or 8 lakes high up in the mountains, with their cascades, fog, waterfalls (be prepared to get your feet wet at some point, and this is not a joke).

Trekking of red/green level, but with some good boots or sports shoes and a good piolet (I didn´t have one), it can be done. Sunscreen is advisable, a cap and a waterproof windbreaker as the area can be covered in clouds, and food (there is a mountaineering shelter with restrooms, showers, pots of food…).

Trekking Circular route of the...



Circular route of the lakes
During the summer season (July-September) it is necessary to park the car in Baños de Tredós where there is an asphalt road that leaves Salardú and as of this point, walk along a dirt path during about half an hour until reaching a deviation that indicates the Refugi de Colomers.

In the off season it is possible to go up and leave the car at this deviation towards the shelter (which at the end of the day our feet were deeply thankful). There are two options for circular routes, a shorter one of 3 to 4 hours and a longer one of 6 to 7 hours. The first stop is at Lago Colomers lake, first of the lakes toured on the route, where we find a shelter. As of the Refugi de Colomers, the road follows the shore of the lake until it starts climbing upwards. A little later on, one needs to make up their mind to carry out the long route or the short one. We chose the long one, which reaches the very Circus of Colomers.
