4x4 tour across the Natural Park of la Garrotxa

Guided 4x4 half day experiencie in the Volcanic Zone


This route will take us to visit the volcanic area of “La Garrotxa”. We will start surrounding the volcano of Rocanegra and after that we will go towards Fontpobra, from where we will enjoy the best sights of the area. If the weather is good, we will be able to see from the highest peaks of the Pyrenees till the Gulf of Roses and “el Cap de Creus”

The day starts at the PaddleinSpain Centre Group - located in the beautiful village of Santa Pau (Olot - Girona) - This place is located only one hour and twenty minutes drive distance from Barcelona City.

We will enjoy a wonderful aerial view of the most important volcanoes of the Natural Park: the Rocanegra, the Santa Margarida, the Croscat, the Monsacopa, etc. Not forgetting the mountains of the “Alta Garrotxa”.  After this beautiful panoramic, we will head for the neighbourhood of Sant Martí Vell, which is a typical district where the people still do cattle farming and agriculture for a living. In this area there is a river, and we will follow it until the “Salt de Can Batlle”, a gorgeous waterfall that invites us to dive into the refreshing water.

Through the entire route, we will find amazing places where we can stop to do a typical lunch based on: salad, “pa amb tomàquet” (bread with spread tomato), regional sausages, cheeses, fruit of the season and soft drinks. 

We will be back to Santa pau after 3 hours aprox .
