The plan We are going make a beautiful circular route that goes through the spectacular territory of Alta Garrotxa, one of the most important areas of the Eastern Pre-Pyrenees. The relief marked by deep valleys with beautiful rivers and waterfalls, surrounded by cliffs and rock walls, make it an important enclave of biological wealth declared a Space of Natural Interest.
On the first day we'll start from Sadernes, a beautiful mountain village, and we'll hike through some hills and next to a small river with some naturals pools towards a beautiful Hamlet called Talaixà.
We’ll spend the night in a beautiful mountain hut reserved for us alone. It’s located in an idyllic spot in the middle of the mountain with spectacular 360º views, surrounded by green meadows, walls and cliffs and a small 17th century hermitage.
The second day is quite smooth as it follows the course of the river Llierca going down, which will allow us to relax and refresh ourselves in the beautiful natural pools and waterfalls of Sant Aniol d’Aguja and its surroundings.
Accommodation and meals: we’ll sleep in a beautiful unguarded mountain shelter (there is no shelter guard) located in the middle of Alta Garrotxa, reserved just for us. The shelter consists of 12 bunks, has a dinette and an outside bathroom (there's no shower). There is no kitchen so we will carry our own food in our backpack. At night it turns into a 1000 star hotel!
Difficulty: Intermediate. Not recommended for people with a lot of vertigo.
