N3-Description

Bike route description

This walking tour takes to discover two river valleys, Ter and Núria, two of the most wonderful spots in the Oriental Catalan Pyrenees.

This is an easy hiking tour, with average laps of about 15 Km, perfect for walking at your own pace and enjoy the magnificent landscape.

Both  valleys are surrounded by peaks of almost 3.000 meters from which flow a multitude of water sources and torrents.

From Setcases, you are able to see  the Roses bay and the Cap de Creus peninsula, in the Costa Brava.

In Núria, you’ll discover an unparalleled environment where the waters of the river can only run its course thanks to the deep narrow gorges that have been cut through this hard rock. In Núria there’s   also  a Sanctuary,  a popular place of pilgrimage.

This is  beautiful corner of the Pyrenees, where you will admire both natural and cultural heritage.

The small villages on your way are worth visiting, with medieval architecture buildings such as monasteries and bridges.
