CARRIAGES IN LA FAGEDA D'EN JORDÀ
The adventure continues, with a horse carriage in a beech forest. It is located within the Natural Park of the Garrotxa Volcanic Zone and sits on the lava flow of the Croscat volcano.
La Fageda d'en Jordà becomes unique for its location and altitude respect to the sea. It is located at 550 meters when in reality these forests are at higher altitudes.
You will go into this fantastic beech forest where in spring you will enjoy the contrasts of greenish colors and their leafiness and in autumn you will be surrounded by the warm colors of their leaves.
With horse-drawn carriages, you will go through its interior knowing its history and its surroundings.
It is an hour's walk where, as Joan Maragall's poem says, "it will take you to a sweet forgetfulness of the whole world in the silence of that deep place."
Enjoy La Garrotxa all year with a balloon flight and a carriage ride through La Fageda!
