What You Can Expect

Girona and Costa Brava Small Group Day Trip from Barcelona

Pals, Spain

Climb aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle at a centrally located pickup point in Barcelona and admire the picturesque Catalan countryside as you travel towards 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 the tour concludes.

This must be a popular tour since this utilized a vehicle that was larger than a van but smaller than a tour bus. David, our guide from Explore Catalunya, was energetic, enthusiastic and fun, which really helped energize this larger group. The walking tour of Girona was fascinating and the city is not to be missed. We had plenty of free time as well, and David pointed us toward a special gelato store--perfect for a very hot day. Calella de Palafrugell was a great place to explore and have lunch overlooking the bay and bathers. A long day with lots to see, and definitely worth a must-see if you want to explore the region.

The trip was relaxing and the guide was very nice. The first stop of Costa Brava had nice old structure and then the village just seemed from old times. The last stop at beach was also very nice to take a swim and enjoy.
