A large number of ravines are born in the mountains of the Berguedà - especially in the Alt Berguedà.
Many of them are equipped to be able to descend through their interior, practicing the sport known as canyoning. We will find about twenty long ravines located and listed, two of which stand out.
One is the Barranc de l’Olla de Mel, a vertical and deep fissure that goes down the cliffs of Gresolet until it reaches La Fageda. It is a very closed canal and at some points very narrow that requires eight abseils to overcome it. Along the route there are charming corners, like a natural rock bridge that is in the middle of the descent. This is a fully regulated ravine and the guide services is recommended to be able to do it and know how to interpret it.
An alternative more adapted to families and ideal for beginners in canyoning is the Barranc del Forat Negre, in Vallcebre. Much more accessible , along its descent there are seventeen-meter abseils, climbs, jumps, a cave and narrow steps where there is only space for one person.
To do this, you need to consider their form of access, which is classified into three categories:
- Regulated access :These are ravines that are located within the Cadí Moixeró Natural Park and permission must be requested from the park itself in order to do so. Once the authorization has been received, the established conditions must be followed.
- Paid access :These are ravines where you have to pay a small amount to contribute to their maintenance and conservation.
- Free access : These are ravines where you can access freely, without applying for any type of permit or paying any amount.
