From Barcelona to the Costa Brava & the Pyrenees

Put one foot in front of the other. Feel the crunch of pine needles beneath your shoes. The sun's warmth on your face. Repeat. The perfect rhythm to another perfect day. It's simple to settle into this pace. To amble amid high cliffs, heavenly Costa Brava beaches and immense Pyrenees massifs as if there's no separation between the landscape and your leisurely swinging limbs. Medieval towns unsullied by time. Whitewashed fishing villages. Curvaceous calas (coves) and an azure sea. Walking in Catalonia. One of travel's most perfect pleasures.

Day 1 Relais & Châteaux luxury each night, starting at the incomparable Mas de Torrent  Hike up the sprawling Montgrí Massif to medieval Montgrí Castle for spectacular views of the Pyrenees, the Mediterranean Sea and charming towns below  Amble through bucolic countryside past farmers tending their crops in the Baix Empordà, a region whose vast network of trails is known to seduce hikers.

Day 2 Walk the Costa Brava's ancient footpaths from cliffs to secluded coves Half-moons of white sand and crystal clear water cupped by forested hillsides - these beaches are simply sublime Linger over a seafood lunch in a sleepy fishing village.

Days 3-4 Gaze in awe at the rugged peaks and shimmering lakes of the high Pyrenees  Visit Montgrony sanctuary, set on a dramatic cliff  Cross the border into France for a hike that leads over stone bridges to the scenic Bouillouses Lake  Savor acclaimed sun-kissed Catalan wines.

Days 5-6 Trek through Cadí-Moixeró Nature Park along pine-clad slopes and enjoy far-reaching vistas of the Cadí Valley  Relax over a gourmet Backroads picnic in the Bastanist Valley  Up for one last hike? Set out early for a ramble across the rolling terrain of the Segre River Valley to a pair of atmospheric villages.

Guests Reviews About This Trip

Expectations were high - and they were exceeded. As always, it's the people - both other guests and guides that make the trip. Knowing that everything will be taken care of without me having to plan (or even think) makes a Backroads trip truly a vacation.
