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).

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.
