Description

This walking tour takes to discover two river valleys, Ter and Núria, two of the most wonderful spots in the Oriental Catalan Pyrenees. 
This is an easy hiking tour, with average laps of about 15 Km, perfect for walking at your own pace and enjoy the magnificent landscape. Both  valleys are surrounded by peaks of almost 3.000 meters from which flow a multitude of water sources and torrents.
From Setcases, you can reach to see  the Roses bay and the Cap de Creus peninsula, in the Costa Brava.
In Núria, you’ll discover an unparalleled environment where the waters of the river can only run its course thanks to the deep narrow gorges that have been cut through this hard rock. In Núria there’s   also  a Sanctuary,  a popular place of pilgrimage.

This is  beautiful unspoilt corner of the Pyrenees, where you will admire both natural and cultural heritage. The small villages on your way are worth visiting, with medieval architecture buildings such as monasteries and bridges.

Day by day

Day 1: Arrival at Camprodon

The charming mountain village Camprodon lies at the confluence of the rivers Ter and Ritort and has a lovely centre with a 12th century footbridge. Take your time to explore the alleys and squares and buying supplies such as delicious sausages and cured cheese from the local shops.

Day 2: Camprodon – Molló (17Km)

Start your trip with a great walk into the high Garrotxa, initially taking you up through lush pastureland. A descent through woodland and valleys passing abandoned and sometimes renovated farmhouses brings you to the village Molló with a Romanesque church from the XII th century.

Day 3: Molló – Setcases (12 Km)

Today you have a spectacular walk over two mountain passes with impressive panoramic views: to the West, the dramatic Pyrenean peaks, and to the East, the warm, wooded hills of the Garrotxa. You start with a long, moderate climb the Fembra Morte Pass (1.728m) and remain high up as you continue to Lliens pass (1.864m) (a good picnic spot). You continue across the northern flank of the Puig de les Agudes before descending through great landscape to Setcases. Dinner and accomodation in Setcases.

Day 4: Setcases (0 or 15 Km)

Free day. Today you have the option of visiting the village and surrounding area or to explore the area in depth on a longer hike up the valley. Why not climb one of the mountain passes or even the Bastiments peak (2.883m) with unrivalled mountain views. On clear days you can see the blue waters of the Mediterranean from here.

Day 5: Setcases – Camprodon (12 Km)

A short but thoroughly enjoyable route leads high above the valley. Cross a mix of pastureland and forest and pass the astonishing village of La Roca, which seemingly clings to the rock on which it was built, then to reach Camprodon.

Day 6: Camprodon - Ribes de Freser (23Km)

Today you have a spectacular, gradual ascent through a wild valley up the Collada Verda Pass (1.606m) from where you descend along undulating paths and tracks to Ribes de Freser.

Day 7: Ribes de Freser (13 Km)

Free day to enjoy this nice village or to take the rack train up to Núria. There is time to climb above the monastery to admire the breathtaking views and do some circular routes which are marked. An optional walk down the valley to Queralbs would add another 2,5 hours (rack railway stops here). Another option is to take the train to Ripoll and visit the Romanesque monastery Santa Maria, the cradle of the Catalan Nation.
