Via Verda to Olot

22 km
215 m

The old route of the Carrilet train has become the Via Verda (Green Way), an ideal place for walking or cycling. Along the Les Planes to Olot section, you can see the volcanic landscape with its fauna and flora, as well as learn about the culture and history of its surroundings. The whole territory of this stretch, for example, refers to the past of the Remences (peasant uprising). It is also in this section where you must pass over the Coll d’en Bas, located at 585 m, a considerable climb up from Les Planes (370 m).

The length of the Carrilet route is 54 km and crosses three counties: La Garrotxa, La Selva and Gironès.
