  • What you will see and do

    Discover Vall de Núria, the most iconic valley of the Catalan Pyrenees mountains with this small group hiking tour from Barcelona.

    After about two hour drive on a comfortable AC Minivan, we will arrive at the charming village of Queralbs, the gateway to Vall de Núria, only accessible via a rack railway or by foot.

    To access Vall de Nuria which lies about 2,000 metres (6,600 ft) above sea leve we will take the Rack Railway, a route of great beauty of 12.5 km ascending more than 1000 meters that will bring you to the starting point of our hike.

    Núria sanctuary lies at the bottom of the valley, surrounded by many mountain peaks of arround 2800 meters of altitude forming a mountain cirque known as “l’Olla de Núria”. We will start our hike from the Sanctuary and will ascend to through the valley on a route that will bring a unique alpine scenery .

    During the hike we will learn about the distinctive flora and fauna of the area and if we are lucky we might see some wild animals like Gryphon vultures, chamois, golden eagles or marmots on their natural habitat. We will also learn some of Nuria’s legends and its religious and cultural significance. On the way we will take some breaks to catch our breath, enjoy the breathtaking views and have some food.
