When is the best time to go?
Spring and Autumn are the best times to visit, as the weather will be warm but comfortable for walking.
How hot will it be?
Catalonia has temperatures higher than the Spanish average, with summer temperatures often in the thirties. As a result, we don’t offer tours in July and August due to the heat. May and September are cooler, with temperatures in the low twenties.

I want a relaxed walking tour, which would you recommend?
Our Costa Brava walking tours are both graded easy to moderate, perfect if you want a relaxing trip on the coast with shorter distances, while our Walking in Catalonia tour is graded moderate if you want longer walking days.
I like my walking trips to be a bit more demanding, where should I go?
One of our newest trips, Villages of the Catalan Pyrenees, is a moderate to strenuous tour - ideal if you want a bit of a challenge (and the perfect excuse to refuel with some delicious mountain food!)
Can I shorten the trip?
Yes! All of our itineraries are flexible, so we can take out nights to suit your schedule.

Can I add nights in Barcelona/Girona?
Yes (we thoroughly recommend it!). Get in touch with our team who can give you more details and prices.
I only have time to visit either Girona or Barcelona, which one do you recommend?
If you’re looking for excitement and entertainment then the Catalan capital is for you. Barcelona boasts the architectural brilliance of Gaudi, a world famous gothic quarter and countless bars and restaurants to get your final fix of tapas before heading home.
If you want a more relaxed city break at the end of your walking holiday, Girona is a wonderful place to explore. Its streets are lined with medieval walls, gothic churches and plenty of sites to stop for a glass of wine and learn about its turbulent past, having been captured 7 times by the French!
