ROUTE FROM SORT EL DRAGÓN DE SAVERNEDA,
TORNAFORT AND THE SIARB VALLEY
We leave Sort, the capital of Pallars Sobirà, towards the crossroads at the Saverneda farmhouse. We go up the picturesque Soriguera ravine to the rustic village of Puiforniu, from where we reach the panoramic village of Tornafort. A pleasant descent - first through pastures and later through boxwoods and red pine and, finally, through an oak grove - takes us back to Saverneda. We finish the route near the river Noguera Pallaresa in the direction of Sort.
Walking to the village of Tornafort, a natural vantage point with privileged views in all directions, is an extraordinary treat for the senses. But, beyond Tornafort, this route also allows us to discover and enjoy the lower part of the beautiful Siarb valley. On the way up, we go up the shady ravine of Soriguera, listening to the murmur of the water and enjoying the splendid riverside woods of the river Cantó. Afterwards, we walk down through subalpine forests while listening to the song of the woodpecker. At the bottom of the valley, on the way to Sort, we can entertain ourselves looking for blackbirds in the wild waters of the Noguera Pallaresa. With so many distractions and attractions, you'll never want to get to Sort!
