Together we’ll discover the hidden corners of the Cadí-Moixeró Natural Park and climb the most mythical mountain in Catalonia, the Pedraforca 2506m. This peak is a real piece of art sculpted by mother nature and its landscapes will leave us breathless.
What will we do? Impressive hiking trails of between 5 to 7 hours each day and the mythical ascent to the Pedraforca Summit (this mountain requires a good physical condition and has some climbing steps).
