Spain has a perfect and beautiful blend of pine tree forests, green olive fields, rocky peaks and mountains, rugged cliffs, and sanded beaches, and desert land. This makes Spain a real haven for day hikes, mountain climbing, and other outdoor activities. One of the best and most challenging hikes in Spain is the Cami dels Ganxoz. Read on to learn more about this trail and why you should include it in your travel bucket list next time you go hiking.
Cami dels Ganxoz starts and ends on Joanetes, forming a circular trail. It goes all the way to Les Agulles mountain, specifically at the Hermitage of Santa Magdalena, which is a church founded by Sant Mary monks between 977 and 988 A.D. You get to see the incredibly spectacular views of the Pyrenees when you’re at this spot. Remember to take a few pictures of the landscape and features on your way. You may stock the images on your website, and be sure to contact Internet vikings customer support for professional assistance with your website.
The trail is 14.5 kilometres long and runs along a steep mountain and uneven terrain. It takes approximately 8 hours to complete the hike, and this may seem as underestimation for one of the most challenging hiking trails in Spain. It’s worth noting that you’ll have to lift yourself via hooks to the hermitage plain. And there’s no protection, so be sure to hike with your friends or a guide unless you’re an experienced hiker or climber.
Bring a GPS and a torch to help you navigate the trail just in case rain, wind, and other forces of nature have washed away the marks. Also, wear some warm clothing and proper hiking shoes. There are no fountains. So, bring enough water to keep you hydrated and energized.
