Laia Acero Casas
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 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 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.

Based on my theatrical and buffoonish character from the Esperanceta de casa Gassia, nowadays the Ecomuseum of Les Valls d’Àneu (Àneu valleys), I invigorate areas of cultural interest such as the depopulated Santa Creu de Llagunes, some of the trails of the Museum of the Vall de Siarb trails, the Ecomuseum of Les Valls d’Àneu, the castle of Valencia d’Àneu … as well as to participating in fairs and markets in the territory.
My work tools are humor, culture and ethnography as well as a truly top-notch landscape. Transmitting the cultural and natural legacy of the territory and adding laughter makes the PNAP experience a unique and unrepeatable experience.

I have a PhD in Biology and I am an investigator of land ecology. I focus on the impact of climate change and global change on the ecosystems of the Pirineu.

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 Sagalés
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.
