The plan We’ll hike up this peak, located in the spectacular volcanic area of La Garrotxa. The route runs through a beautiful beech forest, home of an impressive ecosystem. Further on, the magnificent trees will give place to a stunning natural balcony where we’ll enjoy spectacular panoramic views of the Garrotxa, the Osona region and the Vall d’en Bas, which some people call “the Catalan Switzerland”. We will then take the opportunity to climb the next-door peak, the Puig dels Llops and we’ll get another perspective and enjoy more of all this beautiful landscape.
