Hello to everyone!

After eight days, including two treks, igoastorts Park and the other at Park Ordesa, wanted to say thanks for the helpful information forum that contributed was critical for us in planning our trip!

To express their gratitude, we add some details about our trip didn't show up in the Forum and able to help travellers.

The first track we did in General.
Three days in the park Aig?estortes:
Day 1-Barcelona-Refugio Amitges. Getting there from la guingueta direct alsa bus (one, at 7:30). From cab to espot and another 4WD cab Lake maurycy. From there walk to the hut GR11 Beautiful day, lakes and gorgeous scenery, cabin.
Day 2-way Restanca-Colomers Amitges. Long day (most people do tonight in Colomers) but a lot of beautiful lakes and stunning views.
Day 3-from Restanca to the point that meets the GR11 route, then hitchhiked to Viehla. Less impressive but still very nice with great views of the Lake.

The day before-from Viehla to Torla.

Three days in the Park Ordesa:
Day 1-Ordesa nature tourism (getting there with the bus, 15 minutes ' drive, exit every 15 minutes or so) and continue on to GR11 Goriz. The Park is very beautiful, but the series notable waterfalls and the Ordesa Valley views from the rise to the cabin.
Day 2-from Gavarnie-Goriz (France) through the PAS Brencha de Cirque de Gavarnie and Roland. Amazing day, Paz is a huge window that blundered followed on Cirque has waterfalls including the highest waterfall of Europe. It is also not easy, an increase of 600 m to pass, followed by declines, including a steep drop of 1000 meters over the waterfall (with views of the entire length).
Day 3-back to Gavarnie Torla: ride to ski resort (also from taxi) and from there crossing the small vendor back to Spain, to the Bujaruelo and camping along the River back towards Torla (caught a ride with akamping guys, sure hitch and going to Torla not long).

And now we found the tips:
1. camping – we didn't clear till the end before we do camping is permitted in these parks. The answers to my understanding: you can sleep in a tent Ordesa from the Sun, anywhere. It is customary to sleep in the cabins and use over (water, food, payment, etc.). The official igoastorts, but when it comes to this legitimate travelers to sleep in a tent, and there it is customary to sleep in the cabins and over are allowed to use. Sometimes the reference to specific area boy is allowed to camping Leiden. Between the cabins can sleep in a tent, don't know if it's official but allowed.
2. b-huts invite in advance two cabins in agoastorts (because we thought not to sleep there in the tent). Beyond the possibility of online reservation, as published in the Forum, there is also a possibility to book cabins through focal species in the Park's cabins on the phone: 34-973-641-681. The big advantage of this order is that it doesn't have the extra 10 euros per night charge sites for pre-order! They did not give permission, and we weren't sure you order indeed exist until we got there, but when we arrived we saw us all in order. In addition, according to our experience of the site demanded order of breakfast with accommodation and reservations call all you want combination includes only accommodation (which we did). 16.17 euros per person per night for accommodation. We didn't order the Ordesa chalets at all, but for those who want to settle on cabins it is important to know that the cabin Goriz is busiest in the Pyrenees (that is really at the heart of the Park and there is a lot) and according to what they told us three months ahead would perceive. Agoastorts huts ordered a week in advance and was fine, but should be more safe than if on it and bring a tent (both.) Gooarani town also slept in the tent, and there it all was packed so if you want to take the course offered no tent should clarify much.
3. in food — even if not available in advance, if you arrive early enough might to order dinner at the cabin itself rather too, and from what I could buy about 20 cm high, partial meal or two rather than a full meal that is very expensive (17 euro per person). It is still relatively expensive, but less so. We were eating our food, and often have cabins that allow tables to sit and eat food independently (we didn't see a kitchen for cooking, but we weren't looking too because we had a nzinia so it's hard to tell).
4. transportation between the parks in the Forum posted much (and very helpful) for transportation from Barcelona to Ordesa and agoastorts, but haven't found much information about how move through the parks. In light of our experience here are the details: to switch between agoastorts to Ordesa (and probably vice versa) it is necessary to return to the town that lies south of the mountains named LLeida, through which pass most. It's not particularly interesting but relatively large. Can be reached from most of the towns around the Park, especially from espot and viehla. We've come from viehla where we slept the night before (a lovely town in itself!), and alsa website. From lleida to torla (Ordesa port town) must go through town, beautiful and barbastro boring but also where passing buses. Buses there are of alosa. From lleida to barbastro has several daily buses, but from barbastro to torla (also of alosa) has only two on 11:15 am and 5:15, so I have to take this into account (or stuck there for five hours, because we didn't know the lozim). Anyway, moving from agoastorts to Ordesa in buses is possible in one day, but it is dedicated primarily to travel (our experience, impossible really to catch the early bus, then basically reach only seven o'clock turla).
5-we track whether a week is worth to try for both parks that are very very nice and each in his own way. In three days agoastorts from side to side is a little nervous (did it and it was amazing but it isn't cool), preferably at least four and possibly five fun (with one day of circular rotation). In three days we did Ordesa include attractions that Miss-Ordesa nature reserve, Paz of Rolan, gbarni circus, and oachralo. Highly recommend.
6-agoastorts weather was gorgeous weather, hot and cold day, a little more chilly Ordesa (higher) and we had some rain (including storm one night). The pass that we can't do all this year that some of the time and equipment there, than we understood August is the best.

That is, until here. Are invited to ask questions.

Thanks for the detail. A lot of fun to know that you can rely on independent accommodation!

Some questions you have:
1. couple to le-taillon
2. it is necessary to book tickets for alosa buses? Or you could buy with the driver? Same question about buses from Torla to Ordesa.

3. we're coming pretty late to town near Torla and want to wait for the bus Sunday morning (11 this morning?!).
From hatrshmothch, can I use the rides?
