Join us and discover in one day the most representative and emblematic sights of the Costa Brava. Sit back and relax on the journey through the highway to Calella de Palafrugell.
This beautiful village still retains its traditional fishing town atmosphere. Packed with small coves, its landscape makes it an incomparable setting. See the rocky rugged coastline and the small coves surrounded by pine forests. Enjoy the free time you will have and take in the amazing scenery. Meet your guide around 11.00AM and start the tour through the Camino de Ronda to Llafranc. The hike lasts for about 30 minutes and is suitable for all ages. Did you know the Caminos de Ronda were used to control maritime smuggling? Today thanks to those routes you can discover amazing areas otherwise inaccessible.
Your next destination will be Pals, a small inland town located on the top of a hill. The town is almost entirely integrated into an impressive medieval complex. Climb the cylindrical tower dating from the 12th century to enjoy fantastic panoramic views of the Costa Brava. Walk its cobbled streets and feel like you have travelled back in time. Admire the perfectly restored arches and stone balconies before meeting your guide.
Next, arrive to the fishing town of El Estartit. This is a famous fishing village because of its diving center and the proximity to the Medes Islands. The Islands are of great interest for the wide variety of flora and fauna surrounding them, with more than 1200 classified organisms. You will have free time to have lunch or stroll around town before boarding the Nautilus. Enjoy the sailing, which will last for about 1h30min. Through submerged cabins with large windows, discover an exceptional view of a seabed full of life. As if you were diving! See the stunning cliffs of Sierra de Montgrí, only accessible by boat.
Our last stop will be at the Greek-Roman Ruins of Empuries. Visit the location with a local guide and discover the only site in Spain where the remains of an ancient Greek and a Roman city coexist. Empuries is located in a privileged area right in front of the sea. Contemplate the remains before leaving for Barcelona, where we will arrive at around 08:00PM.
