Description

Between the valleys of Segre and Noguera Pallaresa in the western Catalan Pyrenees, and home to a collection of mountain ranges, lies the Serra de Boumort Protected Natural Area.

The landscape is dominated by pre-Pyrenean features. Steep and rugged mountain ranges with maximum altitudes of 2,077 meters above sea level at Boumort peak.

Other prominent peaks include Pi Sec, which rises to 1,917 meters, and Cap de Carreu, at 1,848 meters.

Inhabiting this stunning Catalan territory is the main wildlife attraction. Deer predominate on the natural reserve and wander around the fields all year round. Elsewhere you’ll glimpse woodpeckers and woodcocks, boars and badgers.

The reserve is also the only place on the continent where you are able to spot 4 species of vultures. These are the griffon vulture, bearded vulture, black vulture and Egyptian vulture.

The wildlife wanders on the great diversity of vegetation that rolls across the mountainside. Pine forests mix with oak forests and fir trees, as well as boxwood, junipers and grasses. While increases in altitude bring beautiful alpine meadows.

Enrich your environmental knowledge near the wilderness near Barcelona. So long as you are aged 10 years old or above and have a good level of fitness you can join this hiking group.

About the guide

guide profile img

My father and grandfather taught me to love the mountains from a very young age. At 12, I did my first rappel...down the wall of the village church (the priest wasn't there). That's where it all started...

I'm passionate about nature, climbing, mountaineering and ski touring and have been calling the Lleida Pyrenees home for as long as I can remember.

As a UIMLA-mountain leader, I have led trips and expeditions in America (Peru, US and Canada), the Alps, the High Atlas and even Ladakh (Indian Himalaya) and Yamalia (Russian Arctic). Since 2014, I am in charge of snow and avalanche training at ACNA (Asociación Conocimiento Nieves y Aludes).

For me, guiding is not work: it is my passion. Each tour and expedition provides a new chance to discover and share what surrounds us. Respect for the environment, nature and local culture are at the basis of my philosophy of life, which I try to share with joy.
