We suggest you to explore with us, on a fascinating journey of adventure and discovery, the River Fluvià, one of the best preserved environments in our country. Along more than one hundred kilometres we'll walk its contours to discover the secrets that are hidden around it:

  • Walking as close as possible to the water -and sometimes even inside of them- we'll see how it has adapted to the natural and geological environment and how this has influenced its course.

  • Crossing the different ecosystems that have been formed around the river, we'll see all the wildlife and flora that live there, in each of them.

  • We’ll explore the interaction of the humans and the river, the ancestral use of its water, both for agriculture or for industrial use. We’ll discover the ancient prehistoric settlements, the art, the historical events and, even, natural disasters that has caused.

  • We offer three different modes of discovery, designed both for people who have more time to explore it all, from the source to the mouth, as well as for those who prefer to focus on some of his most striking characteristics.

  • An innovative and unique travel that offers a different perspective on water and its intimate relationship with nature and the world around us. A mystery revealed slowly to the rhythm of our steps.
