The western end of the park with spectacular landscapes.
Enjoy magnificent sights on footpaths and itineraries such as the GR 150, which runs right round the natural park. Together with thematic routes, such as the Way of the Last Cathar, they will take you to Coll de Creus (1,437 m) and the Camí de Ferradura (Bridle Path) that leads to La Seu d’Urgell.
By mountain bike you can take the “Tour around Cadí” via La Traba lookout point in the La Vansa i Fórnols valley. You can also climb to Torreta de Cadí (2,562 m) on a restricted access forest trail with fantastic bird’s eye views of the characteristic red lands.
Discover small villages such as Adraén (1,434 m), one of the highest in the whole park. The climate is very dry and rigorous, with cold winters and hot summers that condition the vegetation and the animals that live there.
Around the small villages there are cultivated fields, as well as pasture meadows. In the highest peaks of the Cadí Mountains you will find the domain of the chamois herds.
BEAR IN MIND
· Take advantage of all the seasons of the year except winter to take any of the excursions on foot, by mountain bike or by car. In winter you may find patches of ice or rockslides that make it difficult or impossible to pass.
· You can take the forest trail (a 4x4 vehicle is advisable) from Adraén to Cap de la Fesa to reach Torreta de Cadí. You’ll come to a barrier about 6 km before Cap de la Fesa where you’ll have to leave your vehicle and continue on foot. In winter and spring you may come across snow and ice up there
