The walk Judith has taken us on was absolutely wonderful and takes you through very beautiful landscapes and amazing views. To top it of the walk ends with a picnic with the most beautiful scenery and amazing food and wine. I would definitely recommend to anybody who loves to walk and wants to be immersed in the stunning volcans of the Garrotxa! A must do when you visit Olot.

We had a very nice and intimate hike, beautiful scenery! Absolute highlight at the end of the day was the picnic, which was far more than just a picnic! We got taken to a beautiful chapel in nature with view over our previous route. We had an amazing three course homecooked lunch, the hosts put a lot of effort into it!

This was a wonderful experience! A 4 hour hike on some beautiful trails with some incredible views and sights. Totally worth the train journey to Vic! Judith and her husband are such lovely host and truly go out of their way to make this experience special. We had a delicious picnic in a beautiful setting with some ingredients from Judith and Juan's own farm. This experience exceeded all my expectations! I totally recommend!

It’s been a wonderful experience! The route was carefully planned and there were great view points. The picnic with three course meal and freshly prepared located at a nice view point could be a separate experience as well! It was very generous, even after almost 4 hours of walking I still couldn’t finish it all. Thank you a lot for the experience!
