What To Expect

Our intention in this tour is to show in one day the most representative and emblematic sites along the northeastern shores of Catalunya, places of unsurpassable beauty that will give you a taste of all this area has to offer. The Costa Brava is not to be missed!

Our departure is from Barcelona every Fridays at 8:30am, we recommend being there about 15 minutes before.

We will take the motorway and about 10:15am  we are going to arrive in Calella de Palafrugell, a small fisherman’s village that still retains today the traditional appearance of the past.

It is a village of great beauty in both architecture and landscape.  The town, splashed with small bays, becomes a fusion of land and sea that is an incomparable setting.

We will have free time to explore the village, enjoy the scenery and for sure, take great photographs.

About 11:15am, we will start walking along Camino de Ronda, which is going to lead us to the neighborhood town of Llafranc. We will hike about 30 minutes, suitable for all ages, easy terrain for everyone.

The “Camino de Ronda” borders all the Costa Brava and was used to control the maritime smuggling. Today, thanks to this, you can discover beautiful spots that wouldn’t be otherwise accessible.

Llafranc is also a small, elegant and captivating seaside town, with all the delightfulness of the towns on this coast.

Our next visit is to l’Estartit, seaside village with an important port famous worldwide as being an important diving center because the Medes Islands archipelago lies only one kilometer from the coast.

Medes islands are of great interest for the wide variety of flora and fauna that inhabit in the whole marine area, with more than 1200 species classified. The ecosystem has been identified as the best marine reserve in the occidental Mediterranean. It was declared as a National Natural Park and ZEPIM. (Special protected area of importance in the Mediterranean).

You will have free time to have lunch and take a small stroll around town and at 15:00pm we will get on board.

The sailing is about 1h30. First we will go ahead to the outer islands. The views are spectacular! The itinerary continues to the stunning cliffs of Sierra de Montgrí only accessible by boat and one of the most preserved, unspoiled areas of Costa Brava.

In the afternoon, we will travel to Pals, a town located inland and on the top of a hill. The village is built entirely in an integrated medieval site. At the top there is a cylindrical tower from the XII century, which is visible from far away.  It has an excellent terrace that offers stunning views of the Costa Brava and surroundings.

Walking through the cobbled streets you will feel like you have gone back in time. Take time to appreciate the round arches, facades with pointed windows arches, stone balconies, all perfectly restored.

At 18:00 the tour is finished and we go back to Barcelona, where we will arrive about 20.00 .
