Proposals and excursions TOP
Grau d'Escales route. Route 2 Montagut i Oix
Grau d'Escales is a relatively easy pass (grau = ‘pass’ and escala = ‘step’ in Catalan) between two abrupt cliffs from where there are good views of the Salt dels Lliberals (Liberal’s Leap).
The Carrilet cycle lane
The Carrilet is for walkers and cyclists only and follows the route of the narrow gauge railway that once linked Olot and Girona.
From Sadernes to Santa Bàrbara. Ruta 1 Alta Garrotxa
On clear days on certain stretches of this walk you can look eastwards and enjoy the views that extend right across the Empordà plain as far as the Mediterranean Sea.
A viewpoint over la Vall d'en Bas and la Garrotxa. Route 3 Garrotxa
This is a demanding route as it gains height quickly over a short distance. However, it provides for wonderful views of two singular sites: the impressive waterfall of Salt del Sallent, at its best after heavy rain, and the chapel of Santa Magdalena.
La Devesa and Caxurma caves. Route 1 Montagut i Oix
Baumes de Caxurma are a series of natural caves formed in the sedimentary rocks that lie to the south of the basalt cliffs of Castellfollit de la Roca. The largest cave is around 400 m in length.
Circuit of the cliff of Rocalba. Route 1 Sant Feliu de Pallerols
The Rocalba cliff is an excellent viewpoint over Sant Feliu de Pallerols. The holm and downy oaks take over the forest, but one can also find other species that grow randomly like poplars, willows, chestnuts and cherry trees.
From l'hostal de la Vall del Bac to St. Andreu de Porreres by la Torre. Ruta 2 Vall dels Sentits
Itinerary that brings us to the zone of la Vall del Bac and Alta Garrotxa (Garrotxan Highlands), where we come across sites of great natural interest and wonderful landscapes.
On the trail of the Remences
Thanks to the Sentence of Guadalupe signed by Ferdinand the Catholic, Catalan peasants enjoyed by the 15th century a series of personal freedoms that people in the Iberian Peninsula and the rest of Europe did not possess until many centuries later.
