Overview

Discover the coastal splendor of the Costa Brava region on a full-day trip to Girona and Calella de Palafrugell from Barcelona. Travel through the scenic Catalan countryside, and discover the atmospheric streets of Girona’s medieval Old Town. Admire the flagrant fortresses of Pals, absorb the seaside charm of rural fishing village, Calella de Palafrugell, and admire the dramatic landscapes of Begur, the former home of an ancient castle. Receive personalized attention from your guide on this small-group tour.
  • Girona and Costa Brava tour from Barcelona
  • Visit the rural fishing village, Calella de Palafrugell
  • Catch sight of the Girona Cathedral
  • Relax on the beach or go for a swim
  • Transport by air-conditioned coach
Climb aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle at a centrally located pickup point in Barcelona, and admire the picturesque Catalan countryside as you travel toward your fist stop, the ancient city of Girona. Listen as your guide regales you with tales dating back to Girona’s 76 BC origin, and then embark on a tour of the medieval metropolis’ rich architectural tableau. 

During some leisurely free time, see the great Cathedral, founded in 1038 on the site of a former Mosque, admire the spectacular Roman walls that defended the city from attackers, or travel back in time at one of Girona’s comprehensive museums. 

Return to the vehicle and then head to Pals, a small city that grew from the foreboding fortress at its center. Continue to the charming fishing village of Calella de Palafrugell, and gaze at the dramatic hillside scenery as you travel past Begur, site of ancient castle ruins. 

On arrival in Calella de Palafrugell, relish the picturesque tableau of whitewashed houses and pristine sandy beaches, and set off to explore the rugged coastline. Sink your toes into the soft sands of the beach, take a dip in the refreshing waters of the ocean, or absorb the botanical beauty of the cliff top gardens at Cap Roig. 

Reconvene with your guide and group at a prearranged time, and relax during the journey back to Barcelona, where your tour concludes.

Miguel was a great guide, informative and friendly. Trip was great, in a nice minibus with ac. First to Girona which was great, some history and then time on our own, then to Pals a small European town, then off to the beach area in Costa Brava for some lunch and great beach sites!

Ou tour was excellent, almost private, we were only 6 people and our guide and driver Ana, a lovely person. We liked everything: Girona, Pals and Calella de Palafrugell. I highly recommend it. Congratulations to Ana for her excellent work.

I thought the tour was very well-organized. Miguel gave us just enough information, answered questions cheerfully, and left us alone when appropriate. I liked starting with busy Girona in the cool morning, then touring quiet Pals— beautiful!— and ending at the gorgeous Costa Brava coast in the hot afternoon— the sea was refreshing! Yes, it’s a long day, but totally worth it to get an overview of 3 different areas.

Tour guide Felciano. Very knowledgeable tour guide. he patient and kind and he explained all the things clearly.

This tour was great we got to see Costa Brava beaches and Girona city. Girona and Palu is small towns full of history and very picturesque. It's nice to see something outside of Barcelona. I would recommend this tour to anyone who would like to see things outside of Barcelona, which is hidden treasure which also include one of beautiful beaches of Barcelona.

I highly recommend this tour. It’s informative, beautiful and full of memories. The staff is fantastic and really keep you engaged. I would recommend comfortable shoes as some of the stone walkways are old and hard on sandals.

This was a fantastic tour. Driving up the Costa Brava and stopping along the way at Girona, Pals and Calella was a wonderful way of experiencing Spain. Miguel, our guide, was so enthusiastic and informative. We had a great time. Highly recommended.

This is a beautiful full day. The medieval cities are amazing. The ending at the beach with a stunning view was great. Our guide (Camilo) or Cam was awesome. Request him if you can. Lunch is not included but Cam made a reservation for us at Tony’s right on the water and it was excellent. Highly recommend this side trip from Barcelona .

My husband and I enjoyed this trip very much. Cam, our tour guide, had us engaged throughout the entire trip. He was very informative and funny! We are glad we had the opportunity to visit the charming city of Girona. The highlight was visiting the beach!! I definitely recommend adding this tour to your itenerary.
