Join me on this challenging day hike and I will take you Castell de l’Airosa, a spectacular rocky mountain in the eastern side of the Ports de Tortosa-Beseit, in Catalonia.

The Castell de l’Airosa lies within the Parc Natural dels Ports, a Spanish natural park located south of the Province of Tarragona, aimed to protect part of the mass of the Ports of Tortosa-Beseit.

We will meet in Tortosa and I will take you to the hike starting point. It will be a 45′ ride. From the La Vall ravine, we will climb to the top of the Airosa, which as its name suggests (airosa: graceful), appears in a slender and elegant way. This hike requires an effort and we will have to climb to get there. Once up we will enjoy an amazing view of the surrounding environment, with the Vall ravine on one side and the Lloret ravine on the other.

We will then continue our ascent towards our goal, the Castell de l’Airosa. Depending on the angle where you look from, the mountain will look like a medieval castle, that’s the reason of the term castell -castle, in English_–_ on its name.

Finally, we will enjoy a nice descent near the Canal d’en Marc, with rock formations that will blow our imagination and lead us to the Racó d’en Marc itself. The total tour is about 9.5 kilometres long and the actual hiking time will be of about 4 hours. However, as we need to transfer to the starting point from Tortosa, you should plan for a 1-day activity.

So if you want to reach the spectacular Castell de l’Airosa, send me a request. Book your trip and join me on this great hiking tour in Catalonia.

About the guide

Mountain Leader

I'm in love with the mountains, large spaces, wild and photography. I live in Tortosa, a small town with unknown and different environments around it, from the rugged mountains to the huge sandy beaches in the seashore, all of them in two Natural Parks: 'Delta del Ebro' and 'Els Ports'.
I'm an UIMLA mountain leader since 2014, when a change in my life gave me the opportunity to start this new stage.
I'm guiding all around 'Tierras del Ebro' and I make some getaways in search of great spaces by Lapland in autumn and winter.
If you wish to be guided during one of your next trips into nature you can get in touch with me. It will be my pleasure to guide you and make your trek a unique experience.

Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
