Walking diary
Day 1: WALK ALONG THE ESTRETS CANYON AND MEET THE VULTURES, WILD GOATS, MEDITERRANEAN FOREST,…
Enjoy a nice walking day in Els Ports Natural Park, a stunning and unspoilt nature reserve in southern Catalonia.  You will get to know how was the life in a country house in this mountain range by our guide, granddaughter of one of their inhabitants. Walking by the side of the river Estrets you will get into an impressive rocky canyon, home to vultures, wild goats, otters,… and easy hike to discover this mountain range. A landscape that captivated the famous painter Pablo Picasso, who stayed in a cave in the mountains several months. Visiting this cave you will discover how this place had a strong influence in his art; as he said “Everything that I’ve learned, I’ve learned in Horta de Sant Joan“.

There is also the possibility to visit the 2000 year old olive tree called Lo Parot, the oldest in Catalonia.

Stay in a welcoming hotel run by the local shepherd, a place well known by its delicious food and warm family.
