Family Adventures in and around Barcelona

Catalonia is an ideal destination for adventure and family activities. You can walk, climb, or in winter snowboard, dogsled or heliski in the mountains; kayak, kite surf, windsurf, or sail along the gorgeous coast, and hike, bike and ride through the meadows and orchards of the beautiful hinterland.

And that’s just the obvious stuff, as Catalonia has plenty of surprises up its sleeve! How about tracking the elusive brown bear through the peaks of the Pyrenees? Or diving the pristine marine reserve of the Medes Islands? Or star-gazing in the Montsec mountains, a UNESCO-designated Starlight Reserve? Flamingo watching in the lagoons of the Delta d’Ebre? Floating in a hot air balloon over the lush, volcanic hills and beech forests of the Olot region?

Catalonia is home to the breathtaking Parc Nacional d’Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici, a spectacular national park, as well as 17 nature and marine reserves. Several superb long-distance hiking tracks (among them the trans-pyrenean GR11, and the GR92 which extends along the length of Spain’s Mediterranean coast) are found here too, and former railway lines have been converted into spectacular Greenways (Vías Verdes) which are perfect for family walks and bike rides.

If adrenaline is your thing, there’s plenty to get your emotions pumping, from canyoning and white water rafting down the unspoilt mountain streams and rivers of the Pyrenees to bungee jumping, paragliding and sky diving over Catalonia’s gorgeous countryside.

Just let us know what your interests are and we’ll come up with the perfect itinerary for you and your family or friends!

Our holiday was beautifully organised by Anthony who arranged fast track tickets for the museums, tour guides which we had to ourselves, our restaurant bookings, the hotels and so much more including cots, a babysitter and car seats.
