The small village of Arties, with a population of 524 inhabitants, is situated at 1143 metres above sea level. It is located between the villages of Gessa and Garós, where the Valarties River meets the Garona River. Coming out of the village, the Valarties riverside, where the Montarto peak (2833 metres high) stands out, takes us to the river’s headwaters. At that point there is an entrance to the National Park of Aigúestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici, as well as several lakes such as Mar, Tòrt de Rius, Rius, Restanca where there is a refuge and other small ones.
