La Garrotxa is a county between the mountains and the plain. The landscape, originally volcanic, makes this area quite unusual and excellent for outdoor activities of all kinds.
La Garrotxa is a varied territory. We can distinguish two zones: the Fluvià river valley, called Alta Garrotxa, and the southern part where we find the capital of the county, Olot.
The La Garrotxa volcanic area nature reserve is the finest example of a volcanic landscape on the Peninsula, where you can engage in a host of activities. Here we find the Fageda d’en Jordà, a very special wood where beeches grow in volcanic soil.
