Fans of two wheels and nature will find in Rocabruna an ideal place to practice their favorite hobbies. Some adventure shops offer guided tours and bike and 4×4 cars rentals with which to explore the place from another point of view.

The most well-known routes are the following:


Routes 4×4 car from Ribes de Freser – Tregurà de Dalt

Very simple forest trail route. We take the path to the refuge at a turnoff to the GIV-5262 and continue along the path of Fontlletera.

Spectacular views will accompany us along the way.

It is advisable to stop for lunch at the Mirador de la cruz de madera (last waypoint on the map), where we will enjoy the views towards the village of Setcases.

This time we did not find snow on the road, so it is listed as easy (suitable even for 4 × 2); now after snowfall things have to change a lot…


Routes of 4×4 cars from Ripoll to Sant Jaume de Frontanyà

A very varied route, with spectacular landscapes that will take us to very varied places with moderate level nozzles where the reducer is quite appreciated (although it is not absolutely essential).

The route starts in Ripoll and by means of a very simple track we will reach the Remei hermitage. From the hermitage we will follow paths along the streams of Vilardell (where we can stop to see a couple of gorges) and Bufatals until we reach the Collet de l’Auró. In this piece we will cross several puddles of mud, but of little depth And without more complications.

Once we reach the pass, we will take a northerly direction following the Estiulà torrent until we reach the dovecote gorge (where I recommend stopping and going to visit; it is accessed by a path heading east). Once we have visited the gorge, we go back until we find the path to the hermitage of Estiulà, from where there is a very broken track that seems to have been forgotten for a long time.

On this track we had to cover some holes with stones in order to be able to continue (I would say it is of a moderate level). From this point, without leaving the track, we will go into the woods until we reach Cal llentes, an abandoned farmhouse that has been completely occupied by a herd of cows.

Once there, we will head towards the hole of hell, from where we will leave by a narrow and stony track that will take us north until we see that the track is practically finished. And only a branch comes out on the right. At this point we can make two options… or look west for a short trail or follow the path on the right that will take us to the top to go down again (once the summit, the path virtually disappears due to lack of use And it looks like we’re driving through the middle of a meadow).

Once the option has been chosen, we will climb the tracks in fairly good condition to Sant Jaume de Frontanyà in order to finish the route (be sure to visit the Romanesque church of this town).
