Full description
Immerse yourself in the nature of one of the most iconic valleys in the Pyrenees mountains. Departing from Barcelona, travel to the picturesque town of Queralbs where your hike will begin. To access the Vall de Núria, follow the “Camí Vell” from Queralbs to Núria, one of the most iconic hiking routes in Catalonia.

The Camí Vell de Queralbs to Núria, used for centuries by pilgrims as a path to the sanctuary, is a path full of history and legends. During the hike, learn about the distinctive flora and fauna of the Pyrenees and, if lucky, see some wild animals such as vultures, lizards, king eagles or marmots in their natural habitat.

The Núria Sanctuary is located in the heart of the Pyrenees, surrounded by many peaks of 2,800 meters (9,200 feet) that form a mountain circus known as “l’Olla de Núria”. Discover some of the legends of Núria and its religious and cultural significance. Also, have some time for lunch (not included) and exploring the area around the sanctuary.

To get down from Vall de Núria, which is about 2,000 meters (6,562 feet) above sea level, take the rack railway “Cremallera de Núria”, a beautiful route that runs 12.5 kilometers (7.8 miles) and descends about 1,000 (3,281 feet) meters to Queralbs.
