Voor meer informatiehttps://ww2.grandvalira.com/
Running from Els Cortals near the town of Encamp to the Pessons cirque glacier by Grau-Roig, this trail offers a glimpse into the history and purposes of the orris, stone structures typical of the Pyrenees that shepherds used when working in summer months.
These three itineraries allow you to tailor a route that best suits you, in terms of both duration and the amount of climbing. The full circuit covers eight orris and their adjoining facilities.
As well as covering the route on foot during the summer – from early July to mid-September – the itineraries can be combined by taking the Funicamp and 4x4 service.
Information on timetables and prices can be found on the Grandvalira website.
