The Fifth Lake

A five-day hike through a truly singular part of the Pyrenees, responsible and sustainable tourism run by local people.

The Pre-Pyrenees is a very little known territory of Catalonia but it is ideal for enjoying walking around the nature, the tranquillity and the nostalgia.

We invite you to get on the panoramic Lake Train and enjoy an exceptional trip from the Lleida plain to the foothills of the Pyrenees. There are four lakes located along the route: Sant Llorenç de Mongai, Camarasa, Cellers and Sant Antoni.

The Fifth Lake, which gives its name to the route it is the one which we find making this circular hiking trail mid-mountain, it is accessible to all kinds of mountain lovers. This route is signposted and divided into 5 stages of between 4 and 6 hours of low technical difficulty. Along the 105 km. we will overcome the changing orography that the nature offers to us. We will enjoy one of the most amazing parts of the Pyrenees, and we will end up discovering the mysterious and poetic Lake Moncortés. An enchanted lake which is the setting for beautiful legends.

The rest in the country houses will be a unique experience: they will offer quality meals based in our delicious fresh food products, in this way the route will be slighter because we organize the moving luggage from house to house while you are walking without any weight. We’ll provide you the meals in a lunch box and a napkin cloth like the shepherds used while they were walking through these paths. All of these is a great experience of responsible and ustainable tourism.
