A cycle tour route that runs from Barruera to Cavallers Dam, climbing up the Noguera de Tor. It ascends a slope of more than 600 m, travelling 11,5 kilometres of asphalt in constant ascent, practically at all times tracing a constant diagonal line. The first part of the ascent, up to caldes de Boí, is on well-maintained and wide road, with surface in very good condition. From there, the road narrows and the surface worsens; thus, extreme caution is recommended. From Caldes de Boí, the itinerary enters the peripheral zone of protection of Aigüestortes National Park, wich allows the enjoyment of a privileged high mountain landscape. In its first stretch, up to the turn-off to Boí, the route coincides with the Ascent to Boí Taüll Ski Resort. 

It is possible that in winter, the road from Caldes to Cavallers is usually closed due to snow.
