ROUTE FROM SORT THE HORSESHOE ROUTE,
PERAMEA, GERRI AND SORT
This route is 48.4 km long and reveals the small villages and the old bridle paths that connected them in the southern sector of Pallars Sobirà. We do the outward section to Gerri de la Sal along the right orographic side of the Noguera Pallaresa, flanking the valley at medium altitude through the mountains of Llarvén and Estac. We make the return from Gerri de la Sal to Sort along the left orographic side of the valley, following the course of the river Noguera Pallaresa. It is a very hard and demanding route due to the great difference in altitude and distance to overcome. It is only recommended for mountain runners or hikers used to long-distance routes.
We enter fully into the territory between Sort and Gerri de Sal, discovering in depth the mountainous landscapes of this transition zone between the Pre-Pyrenees and the High Pyrenees. We make the outward journey along the wooded slopes of the Llarvén and Estac mountains, following the old paths with cobbled sections and dry stone walls that used to connect the small villages scattered throughout the territory. We make our way back along the valley floor, surrounded by meadows and pleasant riverside woods.
