Ruta del Ter
Route of the Ter

Follow the course of the river Ter allows to combine rich landscapes in flora and fauna (Pyrenees, meanders of Osona, marshes, urban plain of Salt-Girona and humedales) with the artistic and cultural interest of the villages and the cities of the route. A good part of the itinerary, besides, goes through integrated zones inside the Network Nature 2000. We will advance by all type of ways: GR, PR, green roads, forest tracks, historical ways and —only in some kilometres— roads asphalted.

To facilitate the discovery of the territory have created four thematic routes that, along the traced of the river, stand out diverse appearances related with the fluvial ecosystem: the cultural heritage linked to the uses of the water (preys, bridges, colonies, lavaderos, factories, turbines…), the natural heritage (habitats, landscapes, fauna and geology), the literary heritage (with authors like Miquel Martí i Pol, Jacint Verdaguer, Santiago Rusiñol…) and the footprints of the historical floods.

It is necessary to pose the route in more or less days according to the populations by which want to happen , the possibility to visit the cultural and artistic heritage and the type of user (senderistas more expert, group of friends, family with boys, etc.). Along the itinerary will find all class of accommodations —hotels, campings, holiday cottages— and local companies specialised in hiking that can organise us the route. It treats of a route that can combine easily with stretches of cicloturismo.

The start of the footpath finds  to few metres of the shelter of Ulldeter finds the birth of the river Ter. To access to the refugi of Ulldeter, from Girona head toRipoll and Camprodon, where take the road GIV-5264 that goes until Setcases. We continue afterwards to the station of ski of Vallter 2000 until, manually left, find the footpath GR 11, that carries to the shelter of Ulldeter.
