There are varied and beautiful natural landscapes throughout the Pyrenees, but few are as special as those found throughout the Pallars Sobirá region, as well as charming rural villages that provide a wonderful landscape in the area.
The excursions in Sort are, above all, scenic, it is what stands out most of all of them. If you really want to appreciate the entire region from a bird's eye view, you cannot miss an excursion to Noguera Pallaresa and the Àssua Valley.
In it we can cross the entire river area from the highest part and enjoy views and a memory that will remain engraved in your memory for the rest of your life. During the excursion we will visit Rialp, through the suspension bridge of the 19th century of Santa Caterina. We will enjoy the charming routes of the medieval castle of this town and the picturesque streets of Olp, Surp and Altron.
We are talking about a route of approximately 18 kilometers, not excessively hard, that we can travel throughout the year. Topics aside, this is an unforgettable excursion that will not leave anyone indifferent.
Another getaway that we recommend doing is the Saverneda dragon, Tornafort and the Siarb valley. We will cross ravines and visit the cozy village of Puigforniu, where we will discover its origins and customs. In addition, we will enjoy the views that Montsent de Pallars offers us and we will be able to see native species such as the black woodpecker, a bird from the woodpecker family that is very characteristic of the area.
We want to talk to you about canyoning, this sport is practiced in the ravines of a mountain or river, having to overcome obstacles or unevenness that are found along the way: either walking, jumping, swimming, rappelling, going down slides, etc. We will have to jump into pools of water, slide down slides that the water and the years have dug into the rock using ropes to go down with the rappelling technique.
In each descent you can find sections with low waters, points where the water is quite deep and other sections with waterfalls, land with exuberant vegetation, sections where it seems that it has been done at night due to its narrowness and sinuosity.
