After searching for a few days to find a tour that was not only worth the money but fit our personal interests we finally stumbled upon Running and Trekking Costa Brava. Pablo catered the trip to fit our personal needs and made sure we got exactly what we wanted out of our day. I would definitely say he exceeded our expectations. The hike was about 10 miles long, though there are many different running/trekking options they offer, and was the perfect level of difficulty along with a more than rewarding {included} meal at the end. After the meal we expected the day to be over {sadly} but Pablo offered to take us to a small historical village and show us a little more of what Catalonia had to offer. I would definitely recommend anyone interested in seeing the amazing coast line of Catalonia to do so through Running and Trekking Costa Brava - absolutely breathtaking beaches, cliffs and coves! I hope to return and do the five day running tour in the near future!

This is probably the best trip my husband and I have done....and we do a lot of travelling!

I have to start by thanking Pablo and Cristina for making our trip so special. They were incredibly attentive and flexible to all of our needs and desires. Cristina was able to get us a reservation at El Cellar de can Roca on very short notice, when it usually takes 11 months to get in. When my husband rolled his ankle one day, Pablo arranged a last minute winery tour for that afternoon, so the day wasn't a bust! We mentioned that we preferred to have a bath tub in our rooms to soothe our aching legs, and they made it happen.

The scenery, food and hotels were all spectacular. We chose the high-end level and we really got a lot for our money! All of the places let us pack some of the breakfast food for a picnic lunch on our run. Pablo ran with us for most of the trek and provided healthy snacks and water along the way. He loves taking pictures, so you can be sure you will have lots of memories. He also knows everything about the history of the region and is super fit so is able to talk and run at the same time, even when we were struggling (and we run marathons!)

I think just about anyone would have a fabulous time on this trip, so long as you like to walk, hike or run. The length and difficulty of the trail can be modified each day, depending on your preferences. However, if you are motivated you can certainly earn your dinner!

We had a fantastic experience with Costa Brava Running and Hiking. We had contacted them on a Sunday asking if they could put together a 50km run for Tuesday. They did an amazing job at putting together an unbelievable run, organizing lodging for us the night before the run and the night after the run, and helping us with several other travel logistics with virtually no advanced notice. For the running portion, we were provided a fantastic fully catered running experience. We were picked up at our hotel, driven to where we would start running, and provided a route overview from an online map. We were then equipped with a high quality GPS with the route loaded on it so all we had to do was follow the route during our run. The course that Pablo personally researched and selected was amazing with running on the coast, a great hill climb to a Monastery, through many lovely villages, and through a national park. We were met by Pablo (from Costa Brava Running and Hiking) approximately every 10km to fill our water and restock on food. At the end of the run, we had already been checked into our hotel and our baggage was in our room so all we had to do was focus on recovering.
We would highly recommend a running or hiking trip with Costa Brava Running and Hiking.
