Catalonia - Walking the Costa Brava

Catalonia - Walking the Costa Brava

Degree of difficulty - A/B

This route starts in Sant Feliu de Guíxols and ends in l’Estartit. It follows the “camí de Ronda”, a coastal path, which allows you to enjoy the incredible coastal landscapes of the Costa Brava region. A coast that will surprise most of the visitors, as we pass through old fishing towns as Calella de Palafrugell or Llafranc, or charming medieval villages as Pals, more inland. Far away from the crowded places related to this area, the region that you’ll be walking has plenty of unknown places as well as absolutely beautiful unspoilt coves such as Cala Castell, near Palafrugell. The tour is perfect for the ones who want to combine slow-hiking with relaxing moments in the beach, some of the best of the whole of the Mediterranean area. This tour will sure provide little but precious happy moments such as drinking coffee just in front of the Sea or having dinner in some of the best restaurants in the region.
