We will provide you with detailed route notes and some of the paths are way-marked so you shouldn’t have any problems finding your way. The trails are a mixture of GR routes and local paths.


8 Nights accommodation is included in stylish, boutique-style hotels of a 3 or 4-star standard in upgraded rooms.

We have handpicked some of the finest hotels in each area, with the best rooms, delicious food, great locations and a real focus on customer service.

We will always try to book the accommodations detailed but occasionally depending on availability, we may need to book alternative accommodation which will be of the same or similar standard.

You can tailor-make your itinerary and add extra nights to suit your requirements —please contact us for details.

Single Rooms & Solo Walkers

This holiday is available to solo walkers, although a single supplement is payable. If you require single rooms within your party we would be happy to accommodate your request, although it is not generally possible to secure more than three single rooms in a party. A single supplement is payable.


8 breakfasts are included. Packed lunches are available from your accommodation or you can stop on the way. Dinners are also included every night, as well as a wine-tasting and lunch on Day 7.

Additional Nights

Girona and Barcelona are both cities well worth a visit, and we will happily arrange extra nights here for you either before or after your trip.

We can also arrange extra nights at any of the overnight stops on your walk. We especially recommend an extra day in Palamos to have more time to enjoy the exquisite surroundings of the Finca Bell-Lloc! Speak to one of our Destination & Adventure Specialists for recommendations.

When To Go

You can start your walk anytime between the middle of March and end of June, and between the beginning of September and middle of October, subject to availability. We do not offer this tour in July and August due to the very high temperatures at that time of year.

Time of Year

In our opinion, the best months to travel are May and September, when the temperatures are nice and pleasant for walking. Flowers will also be in full bloom in May.

Getting to the Start

By Air: There are regular flights with the low-cost airline Ryanair from many European cities to Girona Airport (GRO), the closest airport to Begur. From Girona airport, you will be transferred to your accommodation in Begur which takes approx 1 hour.  

You can also fly into Barcelona El Prat Airport (BCN) with Ryanair and Easyjet. From the airport, you can take the shuttle train to Barcelona Sants Train Station (every 30 mins, duration 20 mins), and then change trains for a train to Figueres Vilafant Train Station (50 mins). You will be transferred from Figueres to your accommodation in Begur (20 mins).

Getting from the End

We will arrange a private transfer to take you from your accommodation in S'Agaro back to Girona Airport (included in the price). Alternatively, if you are travelling on to Barcelona we can also arrange a private transfer there for you at an additional cost.

Luggage Transfer

Your bags will be transferred for you each day so that you don't need to worry about carrying them and can simply walk with a day pack.
