DETAILS

Walk on an abandoned paradise discovering the fauna and the vestiges of a not so far, ancient life. On this 3-day walking adventure in one of the most unexplored, uninhabited and peculiar spots of Catalonia, you will discover impressive fauna, landscapes, and history. In the unknown Pre-Pyrenean area, you will ride in 4x4 vehicles along infinite trails, enjoying excursions through old animal pathways, and visit the most precious and valued spots of the Boumort National Reserve. The first night will be spent in an antique ranger house, today restored into a mountain refuge, and the second night on a mountain camp, set up exclusively for you, under the magic, troglodyte villages of Solduga and Espluga.
