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:
With the Pyrenees to the north and the Mediterranean Sea with its famous Costa Brava to the south, there is definitely diversity in landscape. Protected areas of Aiguamolls de l’Empordà Natural Park, the Cap de Creus Natural Park, the Albera Natural Area and the Bassegoda area are just waiting to be explored. The area is rich in history, culture, and art.
