INTERPRETATIVE GUIDES

We are passionate about our jobs!

Laia Acero

Laia Acero Casas

I am a guide specialising in mid-mountain trips, an interpretative guide of the Natural Park, a teacher with a degree in Physical Activity and Sport Sciences… but above all I am in love with adventure, with the Pirineu, with travelling and with sharing my passions with the people around me.

I have dedicated a large part of my life to the mountains, and I constantly push myself to observe, understand and learn from my environment.

I’d like to show you the nooks and crannies that I love, and reveal to you the secrets of the peaks and the valleys.

Montse Bacardit

Montse Bacardit Peñarroya

I was born in Sant Fruitós de Bages, and have a degree in Biology. In 2004, my PhD in mountain lakes brought me to the Pirineu, and I have lived here ever since. I fell in love with its mountains, valleys, water, rocks, snow and wildlife. I settled in the Val d’Aran, a small, singular, Atlantic valley of Occitan culture and language. In winter, I work on the prevention and prediction of avalanches for the safety of the mountaineers and road-users of the Val d’Aran. In summer, I swap my skis for backpacking gear.

It is a personal pleasure to guide visitors and aid them in their exploration of our beloved territory, and to teach them about our diverse and exceptional legacy, both natural and cultural. As a curiosity, I enjoy the circ de Baciver i Estanhs del Rosari, accessible through the Val d’Aran, which is the only part of the Alt Pirineu Natural Park that is situated on the Atlantic side.

Come, and discover it with me!

Montse Ballbè

Montse Ballbè Herrero

I live and breathe nature, both at night and in the day. I love seeing people smile as I guide them and I feel something change within them.

In winter, I enjoy snowshoeing, in autumn I listen for the call of the deer, in spring I watch the flowers change, and in summer I love the lakes.

My specialities are astronomy, guided trips through nature and family activities.

Elisabeth Martínez i Escala

Elisabeth Martínez i Escala

All while studying, travelling and working, my nomadic spirit has always longed for the mountains and had a special commitment to nature.

I am an agricultural engineer, an environmentalist and a qualified technician in social responsibility, circular economy and sustainability. I have a vocational commitment to the natural, cultural and social legacy that surrounds me, and I am interested in the revitalisation of rural and mountain areas.

For the past 6 years I have lived between the Ars valley and the Castellbó valley of the PNAP. I was a forest ranger at the Ras de Conques refuge for five years, and during that time I guided trips around the Santa Magdalena valley. I spent one year as a guide at the information point at Sant Joan de l’Erm.

Miquel Prat

Miquel Prat Sagalés

I am lucky enough to have lived in the forests of Sant Joan de l’Erm for over twenty years. I know its landscapes intimately, its nooks and crannies, its people, its fir trees, its streams and rivers, its flora and fauna, and the stories behind each one.

I love to wander in the Park in winter, crisp and snowed, and in summer, sometimes dry and hot, as well as in spring, exulting and fresh, and in autumn, with its shortening days.

I was born in Terrassa and dropped out of a degree in Economics to dedicate myself entirely to cross-country skiing and the Pirineu.
