Vall de Boí Trek Festival

Boí is one of the Pyrenean valleys with the longest history, with the Romanesque churches, a World Heritage Site, as a distinctive feature. Furthermore, the valley is one of the main entrances to the Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici National Park.

The days of the festival are at the beginning of autumn, so a route will be made through the National Park to enjoy the colors of this season. At night, an astronomical observation activity will discover why these skies have been declared a Starlight destination by UNESCO.
