About the activity

The plan The via ferrata Serra de les Canals is located in Oliana in Alt Urgel. It is a very vertical ferrata where we will gain more than 200 meters of positive elevation. During most of the ferrata, you can see impressive Leonados vultures that pass very close to the cliffs. This Ferrata also has a long wooden plank bridge and a beautiful Nepalese bridge. The views are stunning and from the highest point you can see the 2 big lakes (1 reservoir on each side of the mountain). It is a new ferrata that’s very well equipped.
After the ferrata, the guide will show you a wonderful place with natural pools to go for refreshments and have a picnic. It's a real paradise.
Difficulty: K2-K3-K4 medium. Recommended for people who have previous experience in via ferratas (K3) or climbing. If you regularly go to the gym and do not have vertigo, this via ferrata is for you!
Minimum height of the participants: 1.50m.
How do we get there? By shared private cars from Barcelona. During the booking process you’ll be invited to tell us if you have a car and how many people can come with you in the car.
