All about the trip
After our arrival in a picturesque village of Queralbs, we will enjoy an exciting rack railway ride to the Nuria Valley at the altitude of 1954 meters. The iconic hotel and the shrine that host the Virgin of Nuria will suddenly appear as we enter the green valley on the train. Visiting the Pyrenees on your holidays is among the best outdoor activities you can choose in Barcelona. Leave the heat and hustle of the city and explore the Nuria Valley. Our walking tour will begin with a refreshing stop at the local sacred spring Font de Sant Gil. We will continue to a delightful viewpoint, from which you will see several gorges of the Nuria river. If we look closely into the crystal clear pools beneath our feet, we will spot the local endemic brown trouts hovering in the stream. We will then continue to a higher section of the valley in order to soak in countless breathtaking sceneries and natural elements such as chirping marmots, gliding bearded vultures or perhaps grazing isards.
Surrounded by pure nature and majestic peaks we will find a suitable place for our picnic in the Bosc de la Verge and enjoy the seasonal fruit. Then we will visit the shrine of the Virgin of Nuria, the patron of fertility. Many young couples undertook a long journey to visit the Virgin of Nuria in order to receive a blessing. Our unique small group walking tours in the Pyrenees offer the best value for the active travellers, explorers and anyone wishing to discover the beauty of the Pyrenees in a single day.What Wikipedia Says
