This route is part of a multi week long walk or ride, along the Transpirenaica (GR 11). The Transpirenaica (GR 11) is a long distance trail that crosses the Pyrenees for about 800 kilometers. It travels across the Spanish Pyrenees from Llança to Hondarribia. It crosses Spain from one side to the other, from the Mediterranean to the Atlantic or vice versa. It can be done by foot or bike (mountain bike with saddlebags) at a variety of paces and starting points, from east to west or west to east. The whole itinerary is quite well marked with white and red painted blazes and it has a good number of hostels and shelters along the way or you can wild camp. It goes along all types of terrain, mostly off-road, rugged and rocky in some areas. The views are breathtaking. The great adventure of the Pyrenees from east to west, on its southern slope, from the Mediterranean (Llança as starting point) to the Atlantic (and Hondarribia as the final point). Take as a reference guide "The crossing of the Pyrenees on BTT", by Jordi Laparra and published by Prames, following its main itinerary except to take the Ordesa-Sierra de Cutas variant. Through the forests of Sant Joan de l'Erm, of the Segre Valley in the Alt Urgell to the Noguera Pallaresa in the Pallars Sobirà. Starting from the Segre Valley, in the Alt Urgell, you will ascend through the Pallerols Valley to Sant Joan de l'Erm, to descend already in the Pallars Sobirà, through the Santa Magdalena Valley to the Noguera Pallaresa, in the Pallars Sobirà. From La Pla de Sant Tirs you get closer to Noves de Segre, to go up the Pallerols Valley, passing through Argestues, Cassovall and Pallerols del Cantó, where you will cross the Port del Cantó road. Already by the Parc Natural de l'Alt Pirineu, and after overcoming the Coll de Leix, you will arrive at Sant Joan de l'Erm, starting the long descent that, surrounding the Pic de l'Orri by the Santa Magdalena Valley and passing through Montenartró, it will take you to the bottom of Valle de la Noguera Pallaresa, ending in Llavorsí.
