The name evokes a world of water, waterfalls, violets and insectivorous plants. The hike takes you through grandiose thousand-year-old fir forests, giving you the sensation of having entered a fantasy world where water nymphs may appear at any moment.
It is also a great place for listening to the song of the Eurasian wren (Troglodytes troglodytes), the song thrush (Turdus philomelos) and the goldcrest (Regulus regulus), along with many other birds. Close to this forest, along the Pla de l'Estany river, you can try to spot one of the Reserve's most fascinating amphibians: the Pyrenean brook salamander or Pyrenean newt (Calotriton asper).
Level of difficulty: Easy
Duration: 3-4 hours
For your safety, we recommend you do the routes at altitudes of over 1,700 metres between the end of June and the end of September. However, if the weather and terrain conditions allow it, the season may extend from May to October.
This activity is only available in July and August (both morning and afternoon departures).
