Berguedà

The Pyrenees Gate

From the cultivation areas of the Baix Berguedà, the Cadí-Moixeró Natural Park and the upper Berguedà, we find ourselves in a land of contrasts with the Llobregat River that crosses the region from north to south, since its birth in Castellar de n Hug.

Sailing in the Baells kayak, walk a thousand trails, paragliding, discover Romanesque gems, live ancestral festivities or have a romantic evening in a rural house overlooking the Pedraforca are just some of the possibilities of Berguedà.

The Sierras de Queralt, Picancel, Catllarás, Rasos de Peguera and Ensija, are the previous mountain ranges to reach the great Cadí-Moixeró, the Natural Park protected by its great richness in flora and fauna, where endangered species such as the trencalòs and the magical snow flower, but also with a high population of chamois, deer, roe deer, eagles, marmots and many more mountainous species.

The region offers many activities to enjoy the mountain: hiking, mountain biking, climbing, paragliding, canyoning, canoeing, swimming in open waters, cuado, segway, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, speleology, orientation, hot air ballooning and many more activities
