This excursion is framed within the terms of Santa Maria de Palautordera, Fogars de Montclús and Sant Esteve de Palautordera, touching the Montseny Natural Park, on the sunny side, with Mediterranean forest vegetation. We will find forests of pines and holm oaks, with cork oaks and some oak and a typical undergrowth: heather, juniper, arboços.At the time of the mushrooms you can find different varieties: chanterelles, pinetells, nightingales...
