We walked here without even knowing what the word "fageda" meant, just for somewhere to walk to. It means "beech," we learned. The beech woods are situated on a volcanic area, and are incredibly beautiful in winter - stunning at any time of year, I'd imagine.

The Fageda d’en Jorda is not your everyday forest. We visited at about noon on a beautiful, sunny, December 2, after most of the leaves had fallen. As a result, the rolling ground was covered in rust-colored leaves, punctuated by dark green moss-covered volcanic boulders. The trees stood like densly packed, thin, tall white and gray poles, catching the sun... More

walk through the beech forest in autumn, with ocher colors of the trees and the sun is like entering a fairy tale. Walking among the trees transports you to another world

It is hard to find such a flat beech forest. Despite being quite young and with few very ancient trees, walking there on late autumn is a good experience. Try to avoid weekends since are crowded. Some track are not well signalled.

From Hotel Riu Fluvia there is pavement walkway until reaching the entrance to the park on the left. The walk, although not on the level, is not taxing. There are some narrow roadways on route. So be aware of vehicle traffic, especially on bends. You pass various farms and pasture fields. Animals grazing. You should allow about two and a... More

Beautiful forest, a good start-point to walk to several volcanoes (like Santa Margarida or Croscat). Try a well indicated circle route (num.1), easy to walk with kids, it takes you about 3:30h.

I highly recommend a walk in 'fageda' either in the spring or in the autumn. There is a pay car park at the entrance, but avoid weekends if possible, when it gets really crowded.

It doesn't matter if it's winter or summer, if you are walking or jogging or just have a tour with a bike... you will enjoy the light arriving to the ground through tree branches or leas (according to the time of the year)

You can walk, go in carriage, ride a bike... The forest, the gastronomy, the nature, the volcanoes, the romanesque architecture... Do not miss Banyoles lake, near Fageda.
