The first proposals of this TripIdea are for real excursionist spirits. And we warn you that they are not recommended for children. In addition, it is necessary to have experience to face one of these two outings that we propose below and which you can undertake accompanied by any member of the Centro Excursionista Serres del Mestral, the local mountaineering club.
THE `SERRES DEL MESTRAL´ AND `DEL AIGUA AL COLL´ VIE FERRATE (PROTECTED CLIMBING ROUTES)
The Costa Daurada (Golden Coast) is also a land of climbing. There are rocky mountains in the Montsant and also further The Costa Daurada is also a land of climbing.

The first route is via ferrata Serres de Mestral, an excursion that must be done well equipped with helmet, harness, carabineers, double anchorage berry, abseiling-device and rope of 50 meters.
It is an excursion of approximately 5h30 round trip that will take you to the Cim dels Avencs (what a spectacular sight!). Along the way you must overcome rock walls, two rappels of 20 and 25 meters and narrow and dangerous chimneys. You have to be careful because it is an area where the wind blows with very strong! The ride is a breathtaking beauty.
The other great climbing excursion that can be done from Hospitalet dels Infants is the Agulla l'Aigua al Coll. It is a demanding route because it has few steps in the rock sections, so it forces the climber to optimize the movements and the strategy during the ascent. The same equipment is needed. The route takes its name from the stone needle known as Agulla de l’Aigua al Coll and the nwell with the same name. You will pass through a hole inside the rock, through a suspension bridge that joins two walls and a mandatory rappelling of about 20 meters to go down.
FAMILY EXCURSIONS ON BTT…AND ON A HORSE BACK!
