Trip Highlights

  • A trip with a "slow tourism" pace for nature lovers seeking a moderate level of difficulty.
  • Stay in a charming country villa that will make you feel like local for a week. The house is optimally located in the heart of Catalonia and will serve as the base for your excursions.
  • Drive by car to the Pyrenees on charming winding roads that will lead you to small villages scattered along the way.
  • Discover the rocky coast of Costa Brava, tour the coastal villages and admire the scenery from viewpoints overlooking the coastal bays below and the steep mountains above.
  • Check out the real-life places in Girona that served as sets for the famous television series "Game of Thrones”: All the main characters from the series live and fight within Girona. Braavos, Kings Road and Oldtown are in fact various alleys in the old Jewish Quarter of Girona, and die-hard fans of the series will most certainly recognize the ninety wide and steep steps leading to the Cathedral, as well as the Arab baths which were the site of the battle between Arya and the Waif, in the presence of the stunned bathers.
  • Learn about special places and their stories, you'll have to decide whether they are based on historical truth or perhaps legends: the monster from Lake Banyoles, the Enchanted Stones, the volcanoes of La Garrocha...
  • Depending on the season you travel in Barcelona, you may be lucky enough to participate in local festivals, processions, street celebrations, or in any event that occurs in the city during your stay.
