Adventure Wonderland

Mountains or water? In this soft-adventure wonderland, you’ll never have to choose – you get the best of both worlds. 

Between 5000 km of well-established and clearly marked long-distance hiking trails in the Pyrenees Mountains, a National Park, 14 Natural Parks, two UNESCO Geoparks and two UNESCO Biosphere Reserves, Catalonia is more than ready to welcome tourists who want to explore its diverse landscapes by foot or bike. 

But with 580km of biodiverse Costa Brava coastline that offers unmatched diving, snorkeling, kayaking and kite surfing, water lovers will also feel right at home. Catalonia offers developed tourism infrastructure with over 2400 rural accommodations for you to choose from, so a good night’s sleep after a day of adventure is a guarantee. These are four regions in Catalonia, a semi-autonomous region in northeast Spain, you don’t want to miss:

Why choose Catalonia?

  • Pyrenees, high mountain landscapes up to 3000m, unspoilt nature, remoteness, and charming mountain villages.
    • Costa Brava. Beside large sandy beaches and tourist resorts lies still untouched nature: numerous hidden rocky bays, mountains, cliffs, peninsulas, pine and cork oak forests, and romantic fishing villages.
    south and east the vegetation becomes scrubbier and steppe.
  • Living traditions: festivals and traditions, some of them declared Immaterial Heritage by UNESCO, traditional agriculture of wine, olive oil, almonds, and culinary traditions, preserved medieval villages, old monasteries, and ancient archaeological sites.
  • Unspoilt nature in the Ebro Delta – one of the largest wetlands on the Mediterranean Coast.
  • Protected areas: 18 natural parks and more than 30% of the region is protected, more than half of these are mountainous landscapes, there is one volcanic landscape, wetlands, a river delta and marine protected areas, with 5,000 different species and more than 200 lakes.
  • ST infrastructure: 9,000 km of signposted hiking trails, 6,400 km of mountain bike trails, 2,400 rural accommodation businesses and thematic routes (culinary routes, routes with history, pilgrim routes).
  • Vies Braves: network of marine and open water routes used for sporting, leisure, and educational activities – 30 different routes all along the Catalan coast.
  • Green ways – a network of accessible paths along abandoned railway lines designed for open-air recreational purposes and aimed at non-motorized vehicle users.
