Popularization and interpretation of heritage

Divulgació i interpretació del territori
The Natural Park territory has become a privileged setting thanks to its natural and cultural richness. One of the Park’s objectives is explaining these values to the visitors, so they are aware of the importance of the conservation of this unique heritage in our country.

In this website section w would like to inform about the educational offer for the public visiting the Natural Park. If you wish to know how the Park promotes environmental education among the local people, you can find out in the corresponding page of the section called “Viure-hi” (Living-In).

Guided Visits

List of Working Guide-interpreters

The best way to explore the Natural Park at its fullest, while enjoying a unique, high quality experience is by hiring the services of a professional guide-interpreter, authorised by the Natural Park. In the Park boundaries you will find specialized guides offering regular visits around the most remarkable spots of each of the main valleys or areas. Theses guides may prepare custom-made programmes to suit your interests (watching wild fauna, flora, livestock and farming culture, astronomy, etc.).

In the attached document you will find an updated list of working guide-interpreters, authorised by the Park.


Interpretation of Signs and Self-guided Itineraries


In some relevant areas of the Natural Park territory you will find interpretation boards and panels explaining the most remarkable natural or cultural elements around us. Normally, the signs can be found in viewpointsleisure areas or refuges.

Another way of discovering and understanding the most outstanding geographic, cultural or botanic elements in the Park is with the self-guided itineraries. The Park makes available the materials that will let you plan a self-guided itinerary by means of itinerary brochures.

  • Consell davant les allaus  [PDF, 698,18 KB ]

    El Parc Natural de l’Alt Pirineu elabora un cartell per conscienciar del perill d’allaus. L’objectiu del nou cartell és fomentar la seguretat a la muntanya en època hivernal. Per una banda, es vol conscienciar del perill d'allaus i donar unes pautes bàsiques als visitants del Parc Natural de l’Alt Pirineu perquè puguin gestionar aquest risc i, per altra, incentivar que els practicants de l’esquí de muntanya i les raquetes es formin en neu, allaus i rescat.

Permanent or Itinerant Exhibitions


At the Alt Pirineu Natural Park headquarters, in Llavorsí, you can visit a permanent exhibition called “Alt Pirineu Natural Park”, which briefly introduces the richness that constitutes the essence of the Natural Park and the different options for discovering this extensive and plentiful heritage.

In the Alt Urgell village of Os de Civís you will find the el Border Lands Visitors Centre, which helps us learn, with its permanent exhibition, about cultural contacts, economic exchanges, confrontation processes or the cooperation enterprises in the areas around the border. The centre has a very specific Opening Hours Calendar (Information and Tourist Offices)over the year, which must be checked before a visit.

The Park also has itinerant exhibitions that take the diverse aspects of our natural space to different villages:

  • "La muntanya construïda" (The Built Mountain): the architectural heritage of the Alt Pirineu Natural Park
  • "Boscos de Ferro" (Forests of Iron): the origins of the iron and steel industry in Vall Ferrera
  • "Nature and Culture of Montferrer and Castellbò": Geography and patrimony of this municipality in the Alt Ugell District

In addition, in the boundaries of the Natural Park there are a variety of cultural facilities thought to illustrate the different aspects of its natural and cultural realities.
