This set of routes will let you explore the most characteristic spots in the Garrotxa Volcanic Zone such as volcanos, lava f lows, the beech forest of Jordà (La Fageda d’en Jordà), and the most important towns around.
Arrival at Olot from Barcelona or Girona airport. We recommend visiting the Volcano Museum and hiking up to the crater of the Montsacopa volcano, which will assure an excellent view over the city.
This is a circular trip to get to know the large amount of old fountains that the city has. These fountains were formerly used as a source of energy for locals, so they’re very representative of life in those days. Nowadays, they are a source of inspiration for many painters.
This is a circular trip through La Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park. Your accommodation will be both the starting and ending point. After a few kilometers, we’ll go to an exceptional beech forest called La Fageda d’en Jordà. Afterwards, we’ll discover the Croscat volcano and the Santa Margarida volcano, the latter holds a Romanic chapel in the center of the crater that gives its name to the volcano. Further on, we’ll find two volcanoes more: Sant Miquel and Puigjordà. We suggest that you visit the village of Santa Pau, a medieval town located in the Volcanic Zone.
This is a low/medium level circular trip that will allow you to visit two towns, famous for their lava f lows. The tour starts at your accommodation and, after crossing through the city of Olot we’ll reach a path that takes us directly to a town called la Canya. We’ll go through la Canya and cycle for 1 kilometer until we reach Sant Joan les Fonts. Once in this town, we suggest that you visit the monastery of Sant Joan les Fonts, the medieval bridge and the old mill called Molí Fondo, from where you’ll be able to observe the multiple lava flows - discovered quite recently. We will then cycle for another 3,5km until we reach Castellfollit de la Roca, a town well-known for its location, on top of a basaltic cliff. After visiting the town, we’ll take a trail that heads back to Olot.
This is a half-day low level circular trip. This tour will lead you around some of the most representative villages in this beautiful area of la Garrotxa.
