Catalan Pyreness: this mountain refuge is at 1700m asl in the Alt Pirineo Natural Park in the Ferrera Valley. It is surrounded by the Bosc de Virós, one of the most extensive and best conserved montane forests in Catalonia.
As the park’s name suggests, this area is home to many montane specialists like Capercaillie, Black Woodpecker, Boreal Owl or Ring Ouzel.
This is an ideal overnight option that allows you to be right in a great birding area at first light.
- Very good service.
- Very good quality/ price ratio. For 40€ you can have full board, with delicious home cooking. Overnight is 13€ (in 2014).
- Early breakfast.
- Access is by a non-tarred forest track, however this is manageable in a normal car in the absence of snow or mud.
