We’ll set off on the quiet roads of the Vic Plain, heading in a northerly direction. Far away on the horizon you’ll be able to see the infinite Pyrenees mountain range, although closer to us there will be a first wall of mountains showing the silhouette of the Puigsacalm and the cliffs of Collsacabra, today’s objectives.
The first mountain pass of the day, Coll de Bracons, will lead us to Puigsacalm, in the range that separates the districts of Osona and La Garrotxa. Our minds will be filled by the beauty and toughness of the climb until we reach the top, where we will be rewarded by the wonderful views of the Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park. We’ll suddenly find ourselves within a rural postcard, in the little village of Els Hostalets d’en Bas, where we can sit at a table surrounded by volcanoes, calmly enjoying the scenery while tasting the delicious cured meats produced in the area.
On the way back we’ll go uphill towards Coll de Condreu, which will take us to Rupit and Tavertet, two true gems hidden among the impressive Collsacabra mountain range. Before we leave the mediaeval village of Rupit, we can’t miss visiting its spectacular suspension bridge and among the crags of the picturesque village of Tavertet we’ll be able to enjoy the magnificent views of Catalonia’s most hidden spots before descending again to Vic.
