Just one hour from Barcelona’s city life is the magnificent Costa Brava, with hiking trails welcoming the curious explorer. With endless cliffs covered in wild flowers, it's no wonder Costa Brava literally means 'wild coast'. So stretch your legs, put on your most comfortable shoes, and step forward into adventure.
After our pickup at Placa Catalunya by an air-conditioned van, we reach our scenic start. The rich oak forests, olive orchards, and rugged rock formations are in beautiful contrast to the crystal clear waters. Our guide leads us to the most stunning coves and provides snorkeling masks, so don’t forget your swimsuit!
All along the ancient trails between villages are Iberian ruins dating back to the 6th century BC. Thanks to our guide’s expertise, you can fully appreciate some of the greatest archaeological discoveries in the world. Catalonia’s cultural evolution began even before the Romans, and learning about its rich history is certainly a highlight of this tour.
In the afternoon, we reach a charming fishing village and have a delicious, well-deserved lunch and cold drinks at a beachfront restaurant. Here, we can continue exploring, chat with locals, or simply stretch out on the beach and enjoy.
We return to Barcelona at approximately 6:00 p.m., pleasantly tired and with a full day of memories. There is nothing quite like getting to know Costa Brava.
