Description

Rising to 2,506 meters (8,223 feet) in elevation, Pedraforca is one of Catalonia's most iconic and emblematic mountains and the perfect place for a hike in the Pyrenees!

Meaning "stone pitchfork" in Catalan, the uniquely shaped peak has two summits with a low-lying ridge line separating them. Situated in the southern reaches of the Parc Natural del Cadí-Moixeró, it is a challenging but popular day hiking destination.

Our adventure begins at 8:30 am, after we meet up in the nearby village of Saldes. From here, we will transfer to the trailhead and begin our 8.9-kilometer (5.5-mile) hike.

The hike begins with a gradual ascent through varied vegetation zones. As we go, I will be able to tell you a bit more about the plants and animals that live here.

As we continue to climb, the vegetation gives way to compact limestone rocks and we will continue to scramble over these until we arrive at the summit.

From the top, we will enjoy panoramic views out over the natural park and eat our lunch before descending back down and returning to the trailhead.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this fun and scenic 1-day hike in the Pyrenees to the summit of Pedraforca!

If you like the look of this trip then I think you may also enjoy my via ferrata climbing trip in Vallcebre!

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
