Hiking and cycling

The Alt Camp is an interior county of Tarragona region, from one side overlooks the Mediterranean Sea, from the other is surrounded by mountains, some of which reach nearly 1000 m: Mola Roquerola, Puig Formigosa, Montagut, Voltorera or Tossal Gros. At his feet lies the large plain, which together with the modest rivers that crisscross this area -namely Gaià, Francolí and Brugent- constitute a great diversity of landscapes typically Mediterranean, with a predominance of pine and oak and various crops.

Active Tourism in the Alt Camp

The Alt Camp, is a county comprising a range of landscape. It will help all those who love nature when practicing their favourite activity: hiking, cycling, horse riding, hunting, fishing, etc. For this reason, we have had a strong interest in colleting the large network of rural roads, and specially the signposted historic paths and trails approved GR© PR© and SL© which run through the county. It is important to take into account that this region was one of the pioneers in having signposted trails, and the signalling and marking is currently maintained and promoted by the Consell Comarcal de l’Alt Camp, with close collaboration with hiking organizations and the FEEC (Federation of Hiking Organizations of Catalonia).

The signposted trails GR© and PR©

All the GR© and PR© running through our county have, in addition, vertical signs approved by Tourism of Catalonia, as well as the necessary equipment: railings, stairs, walkways, grade steps, etc wherever required to guarantee users’ safety.

In the Alt Camp we find the following approved trails:

  • Long distance trails: GR 7  /  GR 7-8  /  GR 172  /  GR 172-1  /  GR 175 the Cistercian Route /  GR 175-1  /  GR 175-4.
  • Short distance trails:  PR-C 1  /  PR-C 2  /  /  PR-C 3  /  PR-C 4  /  PR-C 5  /  PR-C 5-1  /  PR-C 8  /  PR-C 8-1  /  PR-C 8-2  /  PR-C 20  /  PR-C 20-1  /  PR-C 20-2 / PR-C 85 Water Path.
  • Local trails: SL “A walk by the region” and SL by Farena surroundings.

Other signposted routes

The 12 hiking routes proposed by the guide Hiking Routes in Alt Camp, edited by Consell Comarcal, deserve special attention for their value. (It can be purchased at the Consell tourist office). The 12 tracks chosen, of length and difficulty to suit all tastes and levels, bring us closer to the most relevant places of the county and allow us to see the landscape diversity of the Alt Camp.

Particularly noteworthy is the network of small paths of a more local sort, which can be found in municipalities such as: Aiguamúrcia, Cabra del Camp, Figuerola del Camp, El Pla de Santa Maria, Nulles, Montferri, Vallmoll, Valls, Vilabella,... These are short distance routes, all very well signposted, most of them related to nature, history, rural architecture, etc. Some even have topographical guide and/ore an explanatory leaflet, which you can get at the Town Hall.

Also the way to Santiago of Galicia, which begins in Tarragona and reaches Lleida to join the main Catalan way, crosses the county coinciding on a sector with GR 172-1.
