Collserola Natural Park (Parc de Collserola) Tours

Named for the Catalan coastal mountain range Serra de Collserola, the Parc de Collserola isn’t far from the city of Barcelona — yet it remains relatively unknown to most tourists. Covering nearly 20,000 acres of wild land and with thousands of plant and animal species, it’s the largest metropolitan park in the world.

Its forests are extremely biodiverse and rich with wildlife, and the park’s lands are protected for this reason. Squirrels, foxes, and wild boar are a few of the commonly spotted species. Popular activities inside the park include hiking, cycling, jogging, and birdwatching; natural paths and trails weave throughout.

From most any viewpoint the park’s largest mountain Tibidado can be seen (which can be also accessed by funicular from the city.) Mount Tibidado has some of the best panoramic views in all of Barcelona. There are restaurants, farmhouses, and even small churches located throughout, and grilling at a barbecue is a common weekend activity for locals. The park is a great place to get in touch with nature without going far from the city, and tours to the area run from the city center.

Practical Info

It takes about 20 minutes to get to Collserola from the center of Barcelona by car, but you can also hike or bike up to the entrance in about one hour. Or you access the park via public transportation using the Baixador de Vallvidrera train stop. There is a visitor information center that’s worth visiting to get your bearings. The park’s facilities are open daily from 9:30 am to 3 pm.
