The Pre-Pyrenees are a quite unknown region of Catalonia that is ideal to enjoy walking through nature, peace and nostalgia.
Get on the panoramic Train of the Lakes and enjoy the wonderful journey that will take you from Lleida’s flatlands to the foot of the Pyrenees.
You will find four lakes on the way: Sant Llorenç de Montgai, Camarasa, Cellers y Sant Antoni.
The Fifth Lake, the name of the route, is the one you will find while trekking through this circular half-mountain itinerary, accessible to all levels. The route is clearly marked and divided into five 4 to 6-hour long stages with low technical level. Along the 105 km distance, you will walk through changing natural zones and enjoy one of the most amazing areas in the Pyrenees, ending up discovering Montcortès lake; a mysterious, poetic and enchanted lake which is the scene of wonderful legends.
