Itinerary

Day 1: Comabona

I will pick you up at our arranged meeting point in Barcelona / Baga. After arriving at our first base camp, we will head to the start of our Comabona climb. It is a relatively easy ascent with a wonderful walk. You can appreciate the rock formations on your way to 2,554 meters.

After the hike, we will settle in to the base camp and enjoy dinner.

Day 2: Serra D´Ensija

We will have breakfast at the country inn before starting our journey through the Ensija mountain range. Our peaks will include the Serrat Voltor (2,279m), Creu de Ferro (2,294m), and Gallina Pelada (2,379m), the highest summit of the Ensija range.

After the hike, we will have the option of visiting the Picasso Museum in Gosol (at additional cost). Picasso painted more than 300 pieces over the course of 81 days in Gosol, and stands as an important era in his evolution as an artist.

We will return to the inn and indulge in a little cultural history before dinner.

Day 3: Penyes Altes de Moixero

We will take off after breakfast to explore the incredible alpine landscapes of Penyes Altes Moixero! It is considered one of the most beautiful peaks of the eastern part of the park, and will boast some sweet vistas of Pedraforca and Comabona.

Upon completing the hike, we will head back to the inn for dinner and our final trek the next day.

This will be a tough climb that includes some scrambling, but you will be rewarded with unforgettable views from the top of this mountain. This is a popular summit to attempt, and we have a couple options with varying levels of difficulty.

After our trek we will sip on local Gosol beer to celebrate our adventure, and then we will end our tour.
