Catalunya Guided Walking Week

Catalunya Guided Walking Week

A wonderful, relaxing and varied week of walking. We move from native woodlands of the Catalan interior to the coastal town of L’Escala and its rugged coastline.

Next Dates : September 2024, exact dates tbc.

Location : The interior and coast of Catalunya, approx 1 hour north of Girona.

Level : Moderate, but with some short stretches of tougher inclines and declines.

Distance Walked per Day : From 11km to 25km.

(The longest day is completely flat and easy, but you can choose to walk just 16km instead, if you prefer)

Duration : 8 days, 7 nights, 5 days of walking, plus one rest day. September 2024.

Description :

Our week takes us from the extraordinary landscape of the dead volcanoes of La Garrotxa, through fields and low hills, to the Catalan coast.

We walk mostly off-road, through beautiful native broadleaf forests and alongside open fields, between lovely little villages and towns. We enjoy one rest day, where we visit an incredible ruined Greco-Roman city.

This trip offers a week of great walking, food, wine and company, all at a relaxed pace. There is some tougher ascending and descending involved on two days only. One is where we cross over a few low hills, while the other involves ups and downs between rocky coves by the sea, but nothing too demanding.

I’ve written a blogpost about day one of this lovely week, at https://barrysguidedtours.com/santa-margarida-volcano-in-catalunya/
