    My name is Ramon, I am a professional mountain guide. I have traveled all over the world to more than 40 countries and participated in hiking and trekking trips from the Himalayas to Patagonia. I believe that the best way to discover a place is having a completely immersive experience that reveals the true nature of the destination. So you can feel like locals do, That’s why I have designed a unique and memorable experience for you.

  • What you will see and do

    Visit 3 medieval villages: Besalú, Castellfollit de la Roca and Sant Joan les Fonts and hike around La Garrotxa volcanic zone Natural Park on this unique full-day excursion from Barcelona.

    After about one and a half hour trip in a comfortable minivan we will arrive at La Garrotxa. We will start the day with a soft hike and a visit to Castellfollit de la Roca, one of the most scenic medieval villages in Catalonia dramatically perched atop a cliffside at the meeting point of two rivers.

    We will continue to Sant Joan les Fonts where we will visit the romanesque church and medieval bridge from XII century before, we start hiking across some paths following 3 lava flows that have shaped the lanscapes of this region. Here we’ll learn about the rural way of life of La Garrotxa. The area is simply beautiful and will put you in a zen-like mood.

    After the hike we will head to Besalú, the best preserved medieval village in Catalonia, where first we will have some free time to have lunch (we can book a local restaurant for you).

    Before comming back to Barcelona, we’ll have a guided visit to Besalú where we’ll show you the most unique spots of this beautiful medieval town; an authentic trip back in time!
