Gualta, CT, Spain; Torroella de Montgrí, CT, Spain
Est. 16.6km / 5 hrs 33 mins / Map

Let us join you in the discovery of the Ter Vell canal through this itinerary, from the weir of Ullà to the Ter Vell lagoon, former mouth of the river Ter. It’s a different way of reaching l’Estartit, an alternative that will allow you to discover a rural landscape where the Montgrí massif is always present. It’s a territory full of singularities: the mountain reaches the sea, the river Ter discharges into the Mediterranean, the Medes Islands hide an outstanding underwater environment and the restored wetlands of la Pletera have refilled the area with natural and landscape values. All in all, you will find out about a space where traditional activities, tourism and protected natural areas coexist in harmony.
