- Distance Instructions
You start your adventure with a fairly easy but beautiful hike in the Alt Garrotxa, which first takes us through lush meadows. We then descend through forests and valleys, pass abandoned and sometimes renovated farmhouses and finally arrive in the village of Molló with a beautiful Romanesque church from the 12th century.
A circular route today in the high mountains. A short transfer (15 minutes) takes you to the Vallter ski station. After a gradual climb you will reach the Coll de la Marrana, an excellent viewpoint. You are surrounded by peaks over 2800 m high. You follow a beautiful path through high alpine meadows where, with a bit of luck, you will see the rock ptarmigan. This is also the playground of marmots and chamois, which are plentiful here. After a gradual climb you will reach the top of Les Borregues (2687 m) with an unforgettable 360º view. On a clear day you can see the Gulf of Roses! Take some time to stretch your legs before beginning the long descent to Setcases.
Alternative Route: Distance: 10.4 km; Positive altimeter: 976 mt.
A short transfer (5 mins) takes you to “Pla de la Molina” where a path follows the river Ter upstream to the ski station car park. The path crosses the road and continues to climb until it crosses the road again. The path continues to climb to the Ulldeter mountain hut. You have now climbed 4 km and after the hut you continue up to the Coll de la Marrana. At the Coll de la Marrana we see the steep slope of the Bastiments, but you turn left onto a path that leads to the Coll de la Coma de l’Orri. Here begins the descent back to Pla de la Molina, where a transfer will pick you up.
A very pleasant walk through the Ter valley with spectacular panoramic views. We pass the beautiful village of La Roca, which seems to hang on the rock (roca) on which it is built. From here the path continues along the river to the village of Camprodon.
End of the Stretch 1 from Portbou to Sant Pere Pescador. Possibility of continuing the Stretch 2 and complete all the itinerary. Paris, Girona, Barcelona and Madrid. End of services.
