What to expect

Spend a spectacular day in the middle of Garrotxan nature! You will start the day in Santa Pau, walking through its streets with the village still half asleep. You will see its medieval center and admire its volcanic architecture.

Then, you will go to the Santa Margarida Volcano! One of the most popular volcanoes in the Garrotxa, you will go up and down to the center of the crater, where there is a chapel. Do you know that legend says it works as a stopper to prevent eruptions?

You will leave the volcano and go to a picnic area to eat our well-deserved lunch in the shade of some trees. You will taste typical Catalan food and, of course, you will have the most local desserts you could ever have in this place.

You will then walk through the magical Fageda d’en Jordà while you digest our lunch, enjoying the silence and the mystery of the beeches and weird tussols. Shortly afterward you will head to a spectacular, super chilly waterfall where you will enjoy a heavenly bath.

Finally, you will end the day in Banyoles, walking around its wonderful lake and where, if you feel like it and the weather is good, you can have a swim.
