Spend a spectacular day in the middle of Garrotxan nature! We will start the day in Santa Pau, walking through its streets with the village still half asleep. We will see its medieval center and admire its volcanic architecture.

Then we will go to the Santa Margarida Volcano! One of the most popular volcanoes in the Garrotxa, we will go up and down to the center of the crater, where there is a chapel. Do you know that legend says it works as a stopper to prevent eruptions?

We will leave the volcano and go to a picnic area to eat our well-deserved lunch in the shade of some trees. We will taste typical Catalan food and, of course, we will have the most local desserts we could ever have in this place.

We will then walk through the magical Fageda d’en Jordà while we digest our lunch, enjoying the silence and the mystery of the beeches and weird tussols. Shortly afterwards we will head to a spectacular, super chilly waterfall where we will enjoy a heavenly bath.

We will end the day in Banyoles, walking around its wonderful lake and where, if we feel like it and the weather is good, we can have a swim.
