¡Únete a nosotros en España! (Join us in Spain!) You’ll have the perfect balance of big city Barcelona and off-the-beaten-path Costa Brava. Our Spain walking vacation shows you the best of both.

Barcelona is a fun and fascinating city. It hosts a dynamic culinary and art scenes as well as a rich history and stunning architecture. There, you’ll find good company, great food, and welcoming hospitality.

After leaving Barcelona we are off to the beautiful Costa Brava. The Costa Brava is not as well known as our French Riviera destination to the West, but it should be. This area offers some of the most beautiful natural areas we have seen. You will discover small seaside towns and stroll along well maintained coastal paths. Our Spain walking vacation will introduce the romance and renewal of this captivating region.

What to Expect on Your Spain Walking Vacation

Welcome to Barcelona!

Our tour will begin with two nights in Barcelona. Well known for its food, culture and world famous architecture, there is also warm hospitality and unique hideaways to experience. From our select hotel you can stroll to nearby attractions such as the famous La Rambla or the Picasso museum.

Our city walk will introduce the diverse neighborhoods of the historic center and some sites and tastes along the way.  We will see street art in the Raval and the public heart of Catalonia in El Born. In the Gothic Quarter we will see the Cathedral of Barcelona and visit the bustling market of La Boqueria.

Spain Walking Vacation on the Costa Brava

After 2 nights exploring the vibrant city of Barcelona, our Spain walking vacation moves to the Costa Brava. From there we will explore the pristine coastline and nearby towns. Our base will be Calella de Palafrugell. Still a small fishing village, it hosts an array of family run restaurants, cafes, and interesting artist galleries. Great food and wine are the thing to try when in Spain, no matter where you are. We will do just that.

Surrounded almost entirely by water, Spain offers an array of beautiful coastal walks, and Costa Brava has some of the most well preserved. Calella de Palafrugell is the perfect destination for a Spain walking vacation. Our guided walks from here average 5k-8.5k, or between 1 ½ hours to half-day including stops and breaks. If you’d like to walk more or less, or at a different pace, we can create daily options. Hiking boots are not required. Just a good pair of comfortable walking shoes should serve you well.

In addition to the coastal towns, we will spend a day walking the countryside between two well-preserved ancient villages in the Catalonia region. We will start in Pals, which boasts amazing views from the top of the village. After exploring the town, we walk together to Peretallada to see its impressive medieval architecture and fortified center. You will have time to explore the town, shop and have lunch before returning to the hotel.
