The best way to discover a territory is through its history and its landscapes by walking the old trails. We’ll follow the Annia trail, the best preserved roman road in all the Iberian Peninsula, and the medieval trails that still link villages.
Arrival at Ribes de Freser. Stay and dine at contemporary charming hotel.
Walk up from Ribes de Freser to Vall de Núria on the ‘rack and pinion’ railway. Once in Núria, at 2000m altitude, we’ll go on an excursion to Puigmal: the most emblematic summit of the region. A shorter alternative would be to walk to: Núria Sanctuary, Pic de l’Àliga view point… and enjoy the audiovisuals of the complex.
Transfer to Santa Pau de Segúries village. From here, we’ll follow the best preserved part of the Annia trail. Our accommodation will be in a small hotel in a rural area, with all the amenities, in the wonderful Bianya Valley, with local products for dinner.
Following the old trail that linked the Bianya region with the Besalú county we’ll get to the town of Olot. We’ll climb up Montsacopa volcano. The accommodation is in a small charming hotel, in a Natural Conservation Area and near the town center. Dinner is based on ‘Cuina Volcànica’ (Volcanic cuisine).
Walking from our hotel, we’ll follow a stone made trail that brings us to the heart of La Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park: amazing volcanoes, unique sites like D’en Jordà beech forest and modern landscapes like the Moixina wetlands. ‘Cuina Volcànica’ (Volcanic cuisine) will be served for dinner in the town of Olot.
Transfer to Hostalets d’en Bas village. We’ll walk the royal trail that for many centuries linked the towns of Olot and Vic. We’ll stay in a charming cottage at la Vall d’en Bas. Homemade dinner with local products.
Transfer to Coll d’Úria. We’ll walk through amazing beech forests until we get to Mare de Deú de a Salut Sanctuary, where we’ll enjoy wonderful views of the landscape.
