Full description

Explore the stunning landscapes of the Costa Brava on a full-day tour to Girona from Barcelona. Depart the Catalan capital for the city of Girona, where the remains of its Roman and medieval past make an interesting contrast to the present-day city.

Get lost in a maze of narrow streets, and venture into the best-preserved Jewish Ghetto in Europe. Admire the cathedral, home to the widest Gothic nave in the world. Marvel at the brightly colored houses on the banks of the Onyar River. Then, transfer to the breathtaking landscapes and villages of the Costa Brava, stopping at the medieval village of Pals en route.

Stroll down cobblestone streets, and enjoy some of the best panoramas of the Mediterranean Sea whipped up by the fierce Tramontana wind. Marvel at the fields and plains of Empordà extending to the horizon. Discover dramatic views of the Catalan coast, surrounded by green mountains, sheer cliffs, and small villages of whitewashed houses. Stop in the traditional fishing village of Calella de Palafrugell, and feel as if you have been transported back to yesteryear. Explore the pristine landscape of Calella, and discover the ancient pathways of the Caminos de Ronda.

Once used by fishermen, watchmen and smugglers, these paths allow you to explore the virgin coast at your leisure, where you will discover popular beaches and inaccessible coves and cliffs. Take a dip in crystal clear water, surrounded by unspoiled nature.

We enjoyed our tour with Anatoli and learned a lot. At times, the pacing was a little too fast and we couldn't always hear everything that he was saying. We would have preferred to have more time at the beach at the end of the tour, and 3:15 pm is very late for lunch when the tour begins at 8:30 am and you are traveling with kids.

After 1.5 hr drive to Girona, we enjoyed a very pleasant and calm village with nice locations where some scenes of GOT were shot. Later, we drove to the medieval town of Pals, beautiful village and at last we reached the fishing village and enjoyed nice lunch and swimming in crystal clear waters. Strongly recommend this tour to escape busy Barcelona and enjoy a calm and relaxing day.

The tour group not only toured together we had lunch together with Sangrias; got to know everyone better. Super fun tour. See you on Facebook Dulce! I’ll refer my friends too. ❤️❤️
