About Ribes De Freser To Vall De Nuria Via Queralbs

Views: 343. Updated: Oct 13, 2021 by: Barcelona Travel Hacks

This is a linear 15km MEDIUM or MEDIUM-HARD mountain walk Starting at Ribes de Freser and finishing at Vall de Nuria Ski resort. To return to Ribes de Freser take the Cremallera racked railway from Nuria Ski resort back to Ribes de Freser Renfe station.

Allow 6-9 hours to complete the route depending on physical fitness.

From RENFE Ribes de Freser walk towards the centre of the town parrallel to the river. We turn off at a curve in the road and take a small alley out of the town and into the forest. From here start heading up through cattle grazing hills.

The route is 100% uphill all the way with brief flat sections. The first half of the route is through forests, foothill grazing farm land and small mountain villages arriving at the pituresque town of Queralbs. Note that the Cremallera racked railway stops at queralbs so those wanting to do a shorter route can cut this section out and start from queralbs.

The second half of the route enters the Nuria river valley and we walk up a mountain path that has old stone bridges, caves, waterfalls, viewpoints and forests.

This route can also be done in reverse starting at Nuria ski resort but I prefer to do it starting at Ribes de Freser because it is a good workout. A MEDIUM level of fitness is required. I Completed the route in 6 hours as an experienced mountain hiker. Note that good time management is also necesarry to ensure getting the last cremallera train back to Ribes de Freser.
