    What to Expect
    Experience a simple charms of the Costa Brava, one of Spain’s most picturesque regions, during this full-day, customizable excursion with a private guide. This captivating area’s amazing mix of stunning coastal landscapes, charming small towns and rich history make it a must-see for any visitor.

    Start your day with a morning hotel pickup in Barcelona, continuing by private vehicle on the hour-long drive to the striking seaside village of Calella de Palafrugell. Wander past the white-washed houses and intriguing boutiques and cafe of this beautiful hamlet, stopping periodically to enjoy the views of the fishing boats bobbing in the village harbor. As you stroll your guide will fill you in on the town’s unique relationship with Cuba.

    When you’re ready to leave town, get a dose of nature and Costa Brava’s striking scenery by taking a walk along the Camino de Ronda, a walking path that heads toward the village of Llafranc, tracing a beautiful trail high above the cliffs of the Mediterranean. After a short stop in Llafranc, you’ll head to Sant Sebastià, stopping by the town’s scenic El Far Lighthouse, a seaside hotel and tourist attraction offering stunning views. Before leaving, check out the town’s ancient Iberian settlement, which dates from the 5th century BC, and the 15th-century Torre de Sant Sebastià, which one guarded the city from marauding pirates.

    Continue your Costa Brava adventure in the afternoon by visiting Begur, a city known for its medieval castle and defense towers, and Pais, a fortified village first established in the 10th century. Cap off your trip to this beautiful region by toasting your trip with some wine and sausages at one of the family-run wineries found on the route back to Barcelona.
