The area around Les Gavatxes, the Alta Garrotxa, is a hidden treasure. Away from the tourist chaos at the coast, and less well known than other mountainous areas in the interior of the country, this beautiful forested region is ideal for those who like to trek on forest and mountain paths. It is truly spectacular in the winter when there is snow on the high mountains all around. In the spring, summer and autumn there is a constantly changing panorama of wild flowers, shady forests, and wild animals such as deer, wild boar, vultures and eagles are abundant. When you come here you’ll see what we mean! It really is a well-kept secret for trekkers and those who love nature.
