Hiking in the Volcanic Zone of La Garrotxa and Besalú
Come hiking through the Natural Park of the Volcanic Zone of La Garrotxa, one of the most iconic areas of Catalonia. We will start the route walking through La Fageda ,en Jordà, a unique beech forest in those latitudes. We will continue our journey through the volcanoes of Santa Margarita and Croscat and their unique landscapes. On the way back, we will enjoy a typical Catalan meal at a local restaurant. After lunch, we will visit the medieval village of Besalú, which will return back in time.
We will start walking through the Fageda d'en Jordà, a unique beech forest for growing at low altitude (550 m) above the lava flow emitted by the Croscat volcano. This is a magical place full of peace and if you visit it in autumn you will have the opportunity to see the spectacle of the colors of nature.
Leaving La Fageda, the path will take us to the volcanic zone, starting with the volcano of Santa Margarida, a volcano whose explosion opened a large circular crater in the center of which is the Romanesque church of the same name. We will continue our journey in front of the Croscat volcano, which with its 160 m height make it the highest volcanic cone of the Iberian Peninsula.
For many years, one of its flanks was a quarry and today remains an impressive scar as a reminder of the quarry once active.
After about 3.5 hours pleasant walk, we will arrive again to the starting point and we will go directly to our traditional restaurant specially selected to enjoy a deserved typical food of the area.
Before returning to Barcelona we went to Besalú, one of the best preserved medieval towns in Catalonia, where you will feel like traveling back in time. There we will enjoy a guided tour through its magical streets and we will have a little free time.
