Festival Cancellation 2020
Because of the current uncertainty situation and due to the evolution of the pandemic, we are forced to cancel the edition 2020 of the Festival Cavalls del Vent that should take place the next 12 to 13 September.
After valuing various alternatives, we consider this to be the best decision, because we cannot guarantee 100% the safety of participants, of the volunteers or the people of the territory according to the protocols set by the health authorities.
Just as we got engaged, we will make a full refund of the amount of the registration.
Remember that the crossing is operating normally, so if you feel like taking the route, We will be happy to welcome you!
Next year we'll be back!!!

28 km / 2.000 m +
The Tast is a first contact with the territory of Cavalls del Vent. Ideal to perform without haste or test your performance in this terrain.
We will leave the Lluís Estasen shelter at the 8:00. After a first stretch of track with its corresponding climb, we will reach an area of alpine meadows with incredible views over the Cerdanya and the Bergued. We will pass the mythical Pas dels Gosolans from where we will see the Prat d'Aguiló refuge (Provisioning 1). We will continue along a fantastic path that runs along the north face of the Cadí by its steepest slope. In Coll de Tancalaporta we will change the slope and cross again the Cadí. A sustained descent will take us to the Gresolet shelter (Provisioning 2). We'll need one last effort for a rise of near 4 km to the Lluís Estasen shelter, where a fantastic meal awaits us.
