  • Fantastic views of the sea and sand and relaxing walks along the beach and botanical gardens

Description

Leave the cosmopolitan part of Barcelona behind and discover Costa Brava, an area considered the best destination in 2012 by National Geographic. Hike with your expert guide along the rocky coast of the Nature Park, while he shares with you stories about Mediterranean life, the flora and fauna along the way and he introduces you to fishermen living in the area.

You will also discover the secrets of the historical "Camí de Ronda" path, which was used by pirates, smugglers and local forces to control the coast!

As you stroll these old paths and uncover impressive pine forests next to the sea, cliffs of the Mediterranean coast and the most beautiful natural bays of Costa Brava (spots only reachable on foot). Do you rather do kayaking to find the magical coves of the coastal line? Tell us, and we will show you the way (additional 45 EUR/p).

Later on, visit Calella de Palafrugell, which deserves its reputation as one of the prettiest coastal villages in Spain. This delightful town has houses that reach right down to the sea

front and has its own collection of hidden, little-known places which we will expose you to on this tour. The whitewashed walls are covered with blossoming bougainvilleas, and the glorious sunshine is unrivaled by any other you will experience in the West Country. Explore the village or enjoy the beautiful cliff-top botanic gardens at Cap Roig. This is the perfect place for a leisurely lunch in any of the traditional restaurants. Why don't you enjoy an authentic paella before continuing your tour in Pals or Peratallada?

In the Gothic quarter of Pals you can find details in the city walls, the Gothic windows, the arches, the wells, the thresholds of the doors and a wide range of interesting nooks and crannies. On the other hand, you certainly won't regret deciding to visit Peratallada. It boasts one of the most important mediaeval quarters in Catalonia. This fortified town in the municipality of Forallac is protected by three walls and a moat, watched over by the castle and its keep.

This trip was without a shadow of doubt the highlight of our trip to Barcelona! From the initial meeting with our guide Pol, the trip exceeded all our expectations. The tour started with a drive out of Barcelona, where we went for a trek along the coast. We admired the breath taking views, and walked through the old fishermen’s town to the "Camí de Ronda" path, where Pol explained the history behind the landscape and its various markings.
Following this, we arrived at Calella de Palafrugell, which really lives up to its reputation as one of the prettiest villages in Spain. We had a delicious lunch at a hotel at the top of the hill, before making our way back to Barcelona. Overall, the tour was very well managed. Pol was extremely informative and made the trip as successful as it was.
