A very flat route that allows to follow the shore of the Segre between La Seu and Alàs. The route does not present any difficulty: so the going as the return becomes by the track parallel to the river bank. One leaves the right margin of the Segre, going along the Parc del Segre and the parcels where a lot of people from "Alt Urgell" have their orchards. We leave on the left the districts of "Poble Sec", "Sant Antoni" and "Sant Pere", on the foot of the mountains that close by the north the river bank.

Alàs is opposite, a little elevated, between meadows. At the bottom of the village we cross the river by the Alàs bridge to take the other side track in order to go back La Seu. Near the river we can watch a lot of species of birds that take advantage of the watercourse to feed themselves, to nest or to orientate themselves.

Often, groups of kingfishers can be seen, in the large fields that remain on the left of the trail, well quiet. Going back to La Seu we can observe the east front profile of the town, dominated by the Cathedral, with the apse flanked by the two big unfinished towers. Far end, Castellciutat, with the XVII century fortresses and the mountains range that leads to the Pallars.
