About
If you are nature lovers and you like to discover new areas, this is the best option for you!! On this full day tour you will explore different areas, the first area with a lot of history where our guide will explain the medieval and Jewish heritage of Besalú and a second part of the day to enjoy the nature of the Natural Park of La Garrotxa, in the pre-Pyrenees area with more than 40 volcanoes none of them active for thousands of years. You will prove it with your own eyes visiting a Medieval hermitage located in the middle of the crater of one of them. Also you will visit Castellfollit de la Roca to take some photos of the Basaltic cliff and Santa Pau an small village sorrounded by volcanoes. To finish this amazing day, you will have the opportunity to have a walk or to sail at the Banyoles lake , the largest lake in Catalonia.

January is a more quiet time to visit this region and that combined with how personal and informative our guide was made this an amazing day out! We visited so many beautiful places and Alexia (our lovely guide) was the best!
