Mont-rebei Canyon, adventure for hikers

Mont Rebei canyon

Mont-rebei Canyon -Congost de Mont-rebei- in the regions of La Noguera and Pallars Jussà , is one of the most scenic landscapes in Catalonia. It is an impressive limestone rock wall crossed by the Noguera Ribagorzana river, the natural border between Catalonia and Aragon. You will get speechless after its unspoiled and rugged landscape and the uniqueness of its rock-cut itineraries. Besides it’s also the only great gorge in all of Catalonia.

The pine forests remain in the background to the rocky walls and canyons that the river, on its descent from the Pyrenean peaks, has been carving for millions of years to break through the Montsec mountain. The canyon, with vertical walls reaching 500 meters in some parts impresses even the most adventurous.
