Then, a nice route between paths and trails that ends to Guardiola de Berguedà. The accommodation has a small pool in summer ...

The fourth day, the easiest and most amazing route, takes us through an old mountain railway line (to extract firewood from the forests) that ends near a high mountain chapel. The place is wonderfull. But there is still the best of the day: finally, we will discover two fantastic waterfalls.
