About Day Trip to Volcanic Garrotxa Intro

Discover the incredible corners of the La Garrocha Volcanic Natural Park and walk through a beech forest and the crater of a volcano while enjoying a traditional picnic

Itinerary Itinerary

Santa Pau, our first stop, offers the visitor to relapse to medieval times. It is located in the center of The Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park, an area covering a Holocene volcanic field.

Another wonderful attraction of this trip is the Saint Margarida hermitage, located in… the center of a volcanic crater! So, after climbing the volcano, named the same as the hermitage, you can go down again to see this construction. Do not worry, the last time this volcano erupted was 11000 years ago.

To restore our energy, we will have lunch in a traditional picnic surrounded by a pastoral landscape.

Fageda d’en Jordà, contains mysteries suggested by its curious landscape, a beech forest with 20m-tall trees, growing on lava flow from the Croscat volcano, in the national park.

After our long walk, we will cool ourselves down in admirable waterfalls and enjoy it's clear and freshwater.

Lake of Banyoles, the largest natural lake in Catalonia, popular for being the rowing location for the Barcelona Olympics 1992, will offer us the opportunity to relax and walk along its beautiful landscape, and maybe, if the weather permits, we can take a bath.
