You can also use de taxi service (973 624 105) to take you as far as Maurici, l’estany de Ratera, or the refuge itself.
From December 1 until Easter, you can not drive by car to the parking due to the snow and ice that can cover the road. Only taxis and authorized vehicles can go up. Leave the car in Espot.
