La Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park (Parque Natural de la Zona Volcánica de la Garrotxa) Tours and Tickets
The region of Girona offers so much more than just Catalan culture and historic towns; it’s also got a veritable nature wonderland called La Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park in English, Parque Natural de la Zona Volcánica de la Garrotxa in Spanish, and Parc Natural de la Zona Volcànica de la Garrotxa in Catalan.
Volcanic the park is, indeed, as it is home to 40 (dormant) volcanic cones, and 20 basaltic lava flows, making it the most prized volcanic landscape on the Iberian Peninsula.
You can explore La Garrotxa’s park by setting off on one of its 28 different walking routes, many of which interconnect, and many that take you beyond the region to others. During your adventures, climb to the top of Santa Margarida volcano to spy the see-it-to-believe-it Roman chapel that sits within it; get lost in the beech tree-filled forests of La Fageda d'en Jordà; and make stops at some of the region’s most beloved villages, such as Olot and Besalu.
