About The 7 Waterfalls of Campdevànol

Campdevànol is a small town in the Ripollés region of the Catalan Pre-Pyrenees mountains. Campdevànol is surrounded by forests and is famous for its 7 waterfalls.

This is an EASY-MEDUIM circular walking route of 13km in forests to enjoy the natural beauty of the 7 gorges, Las 7 Gorges de Campdevànol, to swim in the waterfalls and appreciate nature. The route is also known locally as La ruta dels gorgs de Cabana.

The route passes via the below waterfalls:

  1. Gorg de la Cabana
  2. Gorg de la Tosca
  3. Gorg de la Bauma
  4. Gorg del Forat
  5. Gorg del Petit Colomer
  6. Gorg Del Colomer
  7. Gorg d'Estiula

At Gorg Del Colomer, there is a small café, normally open on weekends during the summer.

In the summer months between 10th of June and 30th of September, a 5-Euro fee entry fee is charged at a cabin at the entrance to the 7 waterfalls walking route and you are given a wrist band. This is to protect the environment by limiting the number of people attending to 600 per day.

NOTE: During this summer period the park is patrolled by security/park rangers and there are strict rules. It is prohibited to smoke, have a campfire, cook food on gas stoves or campfires, dive into the waterfalls from the top, have picnic outside of the designated areas and walk dogs off leash. However, it is allowed to swim in the waterfalls.

Visiting The 7 Waterfalls of Campdevànol

Allow 6-8 hours to complete this route depending on how much time is spent swimming.

I advise carrying dry clothes and at least 1 to 2 litre of drinking water.

I also strongly recommend taking neoprene swimming shoes, Escarpines for swimming in the waterfalls to protect feet from stones in the water. Escarpines cost about 6 euros in decathlon.

Near the start of the short and extended routes is Camping Pirinenc or Mas La Riera de Campdevànol holiday home.

For more of a challenge for frequent hikers, there is an extended version of this hike with a distance of 20Km, returning via Ripoll and passing more waterfalls.

The extended 20Km version of this hike passes via El Mir Rural Hotel, Mas el Mir near to Ripoll.

If you are spending the weekend in Campdevànol, I recommend Estiul Aventura Zip Line Park as the second day activity.

Where to Eat in Campdevànol

What to take with you for The 7 Waterfalls of Campdevànol

This is a medium walking route. I always do it with a small rucksack of the essentials and first aid kit. Emergency waterproof jacket is optional depending on the weather forecast.

As it is permitted to swim in the waterfalls I take a lightweight towel and some wet shoes. There is a cafeteria at the last waterfall that is usually open Saturday's and Sunday's However it has been closed on some occasions that I have visited so I recommend 1 to 2 litres of water and not to drink from the river.
