Bike route through the Aiguamolls de l’Empordà: Ruta dels Estanys

If you are looking for an activity to do during your holidays at Camping Mas Nou to discover and enjoy the environment, you don’t need to give it any more thought, we suggest a bicycle route through the area of ​​the Aiguamolls de l’Empordà Natural Park.

The Ponds Route is a good opportunity to get to know both the wetland ecosystem and the different municipalities that are part of the park, such as Castelló d’Empúries, Empuriabrava, Palau-Saverdera, Pau, Peralada and Vilanova de la Muga.

Places of great ecological interest and beautiful landscapes await you, such as the Llaunes and Estanys integral reserves: the Cortalet lake, the Rubina and the Tec lake or the Vilaüt lakes, among others. Along the route you can also see two of the oldest hermitages in the Natural Park, Sant Antoni and Sant Joan dels Erms.

Pedaling you will also visit the Garrigues rafts, Sant Joan dels Erms, the Molí irrigation channel, the Vilanova de la Muga lock and the lower part of the Muga river.

One of the positive points of this route is that it can be started from any point, since it is a circular route. It is designed to start and end at the Cortalet lake, but it is very easy to start it either from the campsite or from any other point in Empuriabrava or the surrounding area.

However, it is important to bear in mind that Estany del Cortalet is where the Information Center of the Aiguamolls del Empordà Natural Park is located. Therefore, it is a highly recommended visit if you want to become a very good connoisseur of the area before starting the tour.

In addition, the route can be adapted according to the level and desire that the participants have to pedal, doing it in its entirety or by sections.

The Estanys Route covers 26 kilometers in its main section, which can be complemented with the lighter blue section that you see on the map and which lengthens it for another 13 kilometers. The Ruta dels Estanys is very well signposted at all times and is easy to follow. There are also marked view points to observe the fauna, especially aquatic birds and horses.

Are you ready? Enjoy our surroundings!
