Beautiful park on the site of ancient volcanoes. We walked up 2 of the volcanoes which are now covered with trees. Lots of things to do with young children including horse and pony rides, rides in carriages drawn by horses and cycling. We rented a huge rural house which was perfect for a group of eight including 2 young children.

Beautiful trails through the forest of Beech trees and good smelling evergreens. The landscape is dotted with remnants of the volcanos and they are spotted throughout this forest. In the forest there is the Santa Margarida Volcano to climb, where you see at the center, there lies a Roman Chapel

It was mined between1960 and 1991 to provide the surfaces for tennis courts and running tracks. Now a Natural Park and protected it is fascinating to see... More

Well with exploring. There are several volcano craters that you can hike into plus hikes through a lovely beech forest. Several towns dot the are, some worth spending a couple of hours waling around. The best thing to do is to have a balloon ride over the volcanos, all of which are dormant.

La Garrotxa National Park has volcanic landscape, Romanesque churches, beautiful flora and fauna, medieval towns and villages with well signposted paths and trails to follow. We followed an easy trail to visit the Croscat volcano which has had a wedge cut out of it by quarrying exposing evidence of how the volcano was formed in two successive eruptions. We also... More

We spent only a couple of nights in this region but would have liked longer. We found several interesting old towns to explore, starting in Olot. The little medieval town of Besalu we particularly enjoyed. This area is full of fascinating geographical features and is a wonderful place to explore by bike or on foot. We stayed at Hotel Can...

We visited the Santa Margarita volcano, which has a CHURCH on crater floor of the volcano. Volcanic cliffs to the rim of the volcano. A safe secure walk,wide paths , very occasionally steep. A place of mysterious beauty.... More

I stayed in the campsite a walk away from la garrotxa, and found the walk to be lovely. the whole place is extremely well organised, and i found the volcanoes not only very picturesque, but make for a very nice excursion.
