From Porté-Puymorens, we take a small mountain track which is the main feature of the Carol valley. The surefootedness of our horses will amaze you.

We cross several Catalonian villages and climb into the Carlit "desert" at over 2300m altitude. Chamois, marmots and mouflons inhabit these high wild plateaus. We then descend to the Bouillouses Lake, where we spend the night in a hotel at 2000m after 4.5 hours of riding.
