Hemos hecho los dos rooms por separado y nos han encantado. Quizás nos gustó más el primero porque nos dió un poco más de miedo....el chico que os recibe es magnífico.

Get started in the world of paragliding in a tandem flight in Barcelona We will make a Tandem Paragliding flight with a professional instructor with extensive experience. No need to have any special expertise or capacity. You can make a small career to take off, and the rest of the instructor in charge.

The family run paragliding business near Berga is a great place to learn to fly with true professionals. Three of us (experienced pilots from the UK) arrived here having never been here before. We met Paco in the landing field and he welcomed us and supplied us with great info on sites and weather. They offer a shuttle service too - very useful for us.
There is a fully kites shop too, so if you've forgotten anything you can buy it here.
Thoroughly recommend these guys.
See you next year :-)

Hostal83 Room Escape

Reviewed By Marta G

Llevaba tiempo pidiendo una emoción fuerte, y por mi 40 cumpleaños me regalaron Inmortum. Fue una experiencia BRUTAL, me reí y me cagué viva en partes iguales jajajaja
El juego está super bien ambientado, el game master es de 10 (por no decir de 20) y las risas que nos echamos allí dentro, no tienen precio.
Allí descubrí que el tono de mis gritos, podía llegar hasta el infinito y más allá jajaja
Hay una prueba realmente increíble, la más surrealista que he hecho hasta ahora en un escape (lástima que no se pueda hacer spoilers).
Ahora mi grupo quiere hacer Hostal 83, pero creo que esperaré unos meses a que se me pase el susto jajaja
La gente de este escape son geniales y están muy crazys!!!! pero mucho!!!
MI, te aseguro que no te olvidaré un muuuchoo tiempo jajajaj
Abstenerse gente muy aprensiva a la que no le guste que le den caña, porque lo pueden pasar muy mal.

Museo Mines de Cercs

Reviewed By richard h - Uckfield, United Kingdom

A very professional and enjoyable museum with visit into former working mine, closed since 1992. The interior (static exhibits) are fascinating and informative. The replica of a miner's apartment is very well done and a great way for children to understand how working families lived in the past. Also this museum helps to understand some of the political and social views of local people and their involvement in political movements in the region.
The trip into the mine on the diesel train is atmospheric and enthralling especially for children. Inside the mine the displays of how miners worked through the life of the mine from basic tools in the 1840s to sophisticated mass-extraction techniques from 1960s to 1990s are well prepared and give a very accurate insight into mining methods over 150 years in the area.
The guide on the occasion of our visit was a cheerful and captivating woman who obviously enjoyed what she was doing, however her explanations and dialogue (in Catalan only) during the guided tour did seem to contain a lot more information than was available on the English-language MP3 player provided.
Overall a very enjoyable experience and far more interesting and memorable than we had expected. Also, don't worry about lift shafts, slippery surfaces or claustrophobia as the path into the mine is level all the way and quite well lit (being essentially a straight path tunnel into the heart of a mountain).
The area around the mine is also fascinating as it's partly restored in the higher parts near the museum and mine entrance but further down there is a lot of dereliction and decay of historic industry and the infrastructure that built up around it, now generally abandoned and returning to nature. It is also comparatively remote and some distance from the town of Cercs itself and we found it to be not particularly well sign-posted or easy to find, even with sat nav.
Particularly fascinating was the former mine owner's beautiful gothic Victorian mansion, just down the hill from the mine, now in a forlorn and brooding state overlooking slag heaps and crumbling former mineworks buildings, and apparently for sale - to someone immensely brave with suitably deep pockets who wants to live in such an unusual and bleak landsacpe, presumably.

This place is called 'the balcony of Catalonia', because in a clear day you can see Montserrat and Montseny. The place is great for walking.

Очень живописная и чистая горная речка, окруженная сосновыми и буковыми лесами. Отличное место для прогулке на природе. Вода, на мой взгляд, все-таки холодновата для купания, но это очень индивидуально.

Fuives

Reviewed By Carles A - Barcelona, Spain

Visita interesante y muy de estar por casa (muy cercana). Te explican todo sobre el guarana catalan y los niños se lo pasan muy bien. Ir con calzado de montaña ya que podréis entrar en las cuadras y todo. La entrada (5€ adultos) un poco cara, pero si sirve para ayudar a la conservación de la especie están bien invertidos.
