Holiday amid herbs

  • Vall Fosca. Pallars Jussà
  • Duration: 6 days
  • Public: Adults

Do you fancy some holidays that combine hiking, learning about the natural herbs of the Pyrenees and their uses, and staying in a charming country-house hotel? These are the holidays we offer you!

Come and walk through the Dark Valley, at the foot of Aigüestortes i Sant Maurici National Park and learn how to identify the herbs, flowers, fruits and seeds as well as about their medical, nutritional and gastronomic uses. You will also learn to spot the plants used to make drinks such as ratafia or to make dyes and soaps. You will end up making your own medicine, recipe, liqueur or soap with the herbs you have collected in the field.

Casa Leonardo, together with Naturalwalks, offers you a different type of holidays.

  • Routes with moderate difficulty. Average height difference: 400 m. Duration: 5-6 hours at a peaceful pace.
