You just can’t beat the striking combination of mountains and sea that this walking holiday boasts. The 'Wild Coast' of Catalonia has got both.

  • Charming medieval villages
  • Famous Catalonian wines & gastronomy
  • Inspiring mountainous seascapes
  • Mountain, coast, beach & forest walks

There is something special about mountains and sea in close proximity, and along the coast of Catalonia that wonderful combination is enhanced by the pleasing Mediterranean climate.

From the coast to the mountains, from sea to crag, from sandy beach to shady Mediterranean forest, the diverse and changing natural landscapes help to create a stimulating walking holiday.

This holiday has been designed to reveal many aspects of Catalonia. Follow the Costa Brava’s coastal cliffs, solitary beaches and coves with crystal clear water, mountain trails with spectacular views to the Pyrenees, and explore idyllic villages.

Typical Itinerary

  1. Day 1: Fly to Girona & transfer to L’Escala

    On arrival our representative will meet and transfer you to your pension in L’Escala. The old centre of this town still retains the character of a typical Spanish working town with its bustling narrow streets.

  2. Day 2: Walk to Sant Pere Pescador, passing Greek & Roman ruins

    Make your way onto the beautiful coastal trail. En route you will pass the walled settlement of Sant Martí d'Empúries, which is well worth a visit. The real highlight, however, is the fascinating Greek and Roman ruins at nearby Empúries. Your ultimate destination today is Sant Pere Pescador.

  3. Day 3: Through Aiguamolls National Park to Castello

    To start today's walk you'll follow the banks of the River Fluvia, along the beach at its mouth and then through the Aiguamolls Natural Park, dotted with hides for bird spotting opportunities. From Aiguamolls you then walk to Castello D’Empuries.

  4. Day 4: Coastal trail to Cadaques

    Transfer to Platja Canyelles to then walk along the coast to Cadaques, a favourite of both Picasso and Salvador Dali.

  5. Day 5: Explore Cadaques or walk to Cap de Creus Lighthouse

    Here in Cadaques you could spend the day exploring the numerous small winding alleyways; a visit to the parish church from the 17th century should not be missed, and you may want to walk to the Cap de Creus lighthouse.

  6. Day 6: Through the Cap de Creus National Park

    Leaving Cadaques make your way north through the heart of the famous Cap de Creus National Park. You will be following a deeply rural path with beautiful views of the Catalan countryside before arriving at El Port de la Selva.
