While the beaches of Costa Brava are truly something extraordinary, you can make your time in Northern Spain’s seaside gem out of the ordinary too. With a dose of adventure the whole family can enjoy, you’ll kayak, swim, and snorkel your way through wild terrain on this full-day tour.
Meeting your cheerful guide in Barcelona’s city center, a one-hour drive and brief introduction in an air-conditioned brings you to the starting point. Once equipped, we set off along the dazzling blue water and jagged cliffs. Under the Spanish sun, we stop every now and then for swimming and snorkeling in the Mediterranean’s clear waters. You’re sure to make some colorful fish friends.
We break halfway into our 4-5 hour venture for a refreshing lunch. This picnic on a secluded beach is certainly a memorable way to dine. After zigzagging through more hidden coves, we head back to our starting beach for some well-deserved relaxation. With a drink in hand at a beachfront café, we may have to drag you back to the van for our return trip.
Get to know the untamed nature of the Costa Brava’s shoreline through the fun of kayaking. From the sparkle of the waters to the drama of the cliffs, there’s never a dull moment.
