Hiking trail in The Catalan Pyrenees
Arrival in Camprodón
Today you will arrive in Camprodón after your included transfer which picks you up in Ripoll and takes you to your accommodation. And to get to Ripoll on your own, you can do it by bus from Gerona or by train from Barcelona.
Once there, we suggest you walk through the centre of Camprodón, a spectacular mountain village full of hidden corners and alleys that you will fall in love with. Our first recommendation, however, is that you try some of the Catalan gastronomy so that you start your route in the best way possible.
From Camprodón to Molló
Today you will walk in an ascent to the Alta Garrotxa. You will pass through meadows and valleys that will fascinate you and confirm that you have chosen an unparalleled hiking route.
After this demanding climb, you will start a descent in the middle of the forest passing uninhabited houses until you reach your destination today: Molló. When you arrive, go and see its Romanesque church; it's a must-see.
From Molló to Setcases
Today you will walk through mountains with spectacular views, summits, forests and hills characteristic of the Garrotxa area.
The climb will be smooth and of little difficulty, until you reach Fembra Morte. Then you will continue walking to Lliens, where we recommend resting to eat whatever you have brought for the day. That break will give you energy.
Finally, your route will end when you pass through Puig de les Agudes and, less than 20 minutes later, you will arrive in Setcases.
Free day in Setcases
For today's route, we suggest two options. The first, a long walk through one of the mountains surrounding Setcases.
The second, that you walk and get to know this picturesque village so that you fall in love with its streets and stone houses, and then visit one of its bars to enjoy a typical Catalan wine.
From Setcases to Camprodón
Today you will continue your route to Camprodón, your final destination for today, walking above the valley and enjoying at the same time a lovely view. You will pass La Roca, a beautiful Catalan village located on top of a cliff.
After your walk, we assure you that you will be amazed once again by the landscapes of the Catalan region. Remember also that along the way you can visit multiple cultural and historical points of interest.
From Camprodón to Ribes de Freser
When you leave Camprodón you will find an ascent with medium difficulty along a valley that will take you to Collada Verda, after passing through several mountain villages on your route.
When you start to descend, after a hike in which you have been enjoying the Catalan Pyrenees for several hours, the trail will not be straight, so you will have more time to enjoy it. At the end of your day, you will arrive in Ribes de Freser.
Free day in Ribes de Freser
Today you will enjoy getting to know the village of Ribes de Freser. To do this, we suggest you take the rack railway that takes you to the Nuria Valley, after travelling the more than 12 kilometres on your journey.
Once there, be sure to visit the Monastery of Núria, known for having been a place of pilgrimage and cultural centre during the Middle Ages. Inside it, you will find various walks that you can choose to help you enjoy its charm.
Return from Ribes de Freser
Today, your hiking trail in the Catalan Pyrenees with Santiago Ways ends.*
From Ribes de Freser you can take a train back to Barcelona. If instead, you head to Gerona, we can offer you an additional transfer from Ribes de Freser to Ripoll so you can take a bus to Gerona.
*Remember that when you book your circuit, you can ask us to book additional hotel nights for the days after the end of your circuit to extend your stay in one of the villages in the Catalan Pyrenees, in Barcelona or in Gerona on your own.
