The arrival of the Croscat volcano lava flow about 11,000 years ago, altered the landscape of this place and its effects extended not only to a wide area but quite reach our age.
This route is designed for one-way and you must provide for the return from Riudaura by public transport or car.
Batet lies on a basalt plateau crowned by the volcano Pujalós. Batet is a wonderful place and provides exceptional views of the Pyrenees and the area around Olot.
This route offers an alternative way of discovering three of the most-visited places in La Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park.
This itinerary crosses the central area of La Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park, passing through places such as Moixina wetlands, La Fageda d'en Jordà, and the banks of the volcanoes Croscat and Santa Margarida.
The Carrilet is for walkers and cyclists only and follows the route of the narrow gauge railway that once linked Olot and Girona.
This route provides links Mataró and Prada de Conflent and the peak of El Canigó. It runs through attractive landscapes in El Montseny, Les Guilleries and La Garrotxa, and includes sections involving considerable climbs once it reaches the Pyrenees.
The intense summer heat is an incentive to search for places to cool off, places where you can rest and at the same time get to know some of the other delights of La Garrotxa.
Another way to discover La Garrotxa is to climb up high for a bird’s-eye view over the comarca.
The city of Olot spreads out around the base of one of La Garrotxa’s best known volcanoes –Montsacopa– and climbing its slopes is a perfect way to rediscover nature without actually leaving the city.
