We’ve just started getting to know the area around us really well. We have been promising ourselves a Mountain walking trip for 6 years and came across this group on one of the ex-pat forums here in Tortosa area. We have been on three walks so far and enjoyed them all thoroughly. Two of the leaders Vivien and Philip Freakley have published a small guide book called “Mountain Walking in Southern Catalunya” so we are in very safe, experienced hands.
This one was the Vall d’intern and we gained 350m on a 5 km circular walk.
I knew we would enjoy it and I was right. It is however a long time since I have done any serious walking, training Ten Tors students in 2007 and it was quite hard.
This week was much easier.
Barranc de Lloret was an easy 3 hour 4km walk which combined two short walks. Starting the barranc de Lloret near Mas de Barbarans and included a visit to the impressive Cova Pintada and the waterfall at the Raco del Moro.
