Garrotxa Nature Reserve
Visiting dormant volcanoes is not one of the typical things to do in Spain; however, for those who take the time the experience offers stunning scenery and a one-of-a-kind experience. Sandwiched between the Pyrenees and Costa Brava, the region of Garroxta is home to a multitude of prehistoric volcanoes as well as many castles and country houses. Visitors wanting to experience more of Spain than the quintessential beach and city breaks should head to Garrotxa Nature Reserve, just outside of Girona, to experience a land of amazing and rugged landscapes, fire and ash. The volcanoes in this area formed over 11,000 years ago and the region is unique to Europe. Visitors can walk, hike or horse ride along any number of tracks and trails in the reserve and enjoy a land of stark contrasts.
