This is the standard shortish walk from the town centre of Alquezar. Because we are in our mid-70s and have wonky knees we were advised correctly to walk down the path from the main cafe street outside the old town and return up the gorge....More

Beautiful views of the cliffs, waterfalls and river. Took us a couple of hours to complete this relatively easy hike.

This hike was such a treat. It’s not that difficult but it has its moments. The nature is beautiful and picturesque as are the views. Just enjoy what is a really well kept up simple easy hike in a beautiful place.

Nice walk by the river , specially in summer, and don't forget to take your swimsuit for a nice dive in the river. The footbridge is perfectly safe, in some places is a bit narrow so if someone's coming the other way you'l have to...More

Thank you for your response. I've benn trying to book a day tour of Ruta de las Pasarelas from Barcelona, but it's quite confusing. I'd prefer to go there via train then book a local tour guide. Is it possible? Thank... More
