We took a horse drawn carriage through this forest but there are lots of hiking trails for those wanting greater activity. The forest has a type of beech tree only found in two places on earth and they stand on the lava flow from the Croscat Volcano, the most recent to have erupted. It is all incredibly peaceful and eerie... More

Absolutely a must on ones check-list, however, getting to it in 37 degree heat and trekking 7km to get there in the warmth really made it a bad experience for us all. In the summer it looks like a regular forest, no biggie. However in fall it's supposed to be amazing.

We drove from Girona to see the craters recommended to us. This is a very special place, more beautiful in Autumn.

A great way to spend a few hours. Easy stroll through a lovely forest. Amazing light penetrating through the dense cover. Our trail came upon the co-op dairy which was a nice place to stop for ice cream. We should have picked up a map as some of the signage was confusing and inconsistent so we wasted a bit of... More

it's quite and only nature. Just yourself, trees shade and this ancient volcanic spot. Good restaurants arround in la Deu or la Font Moixina. Strongly recommended, we do always come back

This is a very special place to get away from it all. Allow yourself to slow the pace and let the horse ride take you through a very special beach forest. Even more beautiful in Autumn.

It may seem like a normal forest to unexperienced eyes. However, la Fageda d'en Jordà wasn't meant to be there. The unique location of this valley, surrounded by the volcanoes and combined with the proximity to the Pyrenees and the coastal ranges has created the perfect environment for this forest to persist in an area it is not meant to...

Great walking in the shade, although it gets rather busier here than other more hilly walking routes in the area.

Amazing colours in fall, dream-like atmosphere even with good weather. Excellent for taking pictures or just sitting down listening to birds
