Flight from Coloms, in the middle of the Natural Park
If you like hiking, you should know that Vol de Coloms is located in the middle of route 1 of the Natural Park of the Volcanic Zone of La Garrotxa. It is a circular circuit during which the walker finds 3 of the most emblematic and attractive points of the region: la Fageda d’en Jordà, the Croscat volcano and the Santa Margarida volcano. A route that has a distance of approximately 10km, which is usually done in just over 3 hours and is rated as easy-medium difficulty.
The starting point of the route can be chosen by the walker himself. It is recommended to start with the Fageda d’en Jordà but you can also start in the Santa Margarida area. Both are located on the Gi-524 road, from Olot to Santa Pau.
La Fageda d’en Jordà is an exceptional beech forest as it grows on flat ground. This type of grove is usually located at higher elevations. It is located on the lava flow from the Croscat volcano.
If you start the journey through the beech forest, the visitor will enter the natural park through this beech forest so characteristic and known everywhere. It covers about 700 hectares and is made up of hills that can reach 20 meters in height. Head south until you reach the Santa Margarida volcano, known for having a Romanesque hermitage in the middle of its crater, which gives the volcano its name. Except for the crater, which is now a meadow, the rest of the volcano is covered with forests. The route descends to the Santa Margarida area and from there it can be linked to the Croscat volcano. At its foot, on the north face, you will find our Pigeon Flight facilities.
During the entire route there are connections with other itineraries: route 3 which goes from Olot to Can Xel, route 4 which connects Can Xel with Santa Pau and number 5 which goes from Can Xel to Colltort.
