What You'll See & Do

All in one Tossa de Mar trip from Barcelona 

Ever wondered about what lies just beyond the confines of the city? Are you interested in combining local history and nature? Our fully inclusive walking day tour takes you to one of the most astounding towns in Catalonia, combining a scenic coastal walk with a rich history of a millenia.

Awe-inspiring views of the Costa Brava coastline

Join us on a wonderfully historic and cultural tour to one of the most spectacular spots of the Catalonian coast. Tossa de Mar is a vibrant and beautiful medieval town located roughly an hour away from Barcelona. We will travel in our comfortable, air-conditioned van and, upon our arrival, we will start our adventure. 

Walking through nature of the Mediterranean

We will start by walking along the coast of the Costa Brava, taking in the beauty and the awe-inspiring scenery that it provides. Walking past different coves and beaches, there will be opportunities to gawk at the crystal-clear turquoise waters of the mediterranean sea. Allow yourself to be refreshed by breathing in the salty fresh breeze that blows throughout the coast.

Local culture of Tossa de Mar

Along the way, we will pass a traditional Spanish fishing village. A still picture of a time passed long ago, preserved to this very day. Feel the history embedded in those small structures nestled away on the coast. The beauty of the humble fishing town will touch you!

Tossa de Mar and its impressive fortress

We will walk through ancient cobbled streets and venture into historic buildings learning about the unique and extensive history of the town which dates as far back as the Neolithic, being permanently settled thereafter, by the first Ibearians and later on by the Romans in the 1st century. 

We will follow the famous coastal trail of Camí de Ronda, leading us through some old traditional fishing villages, giving you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the local nature, breathtaking views and fresh air.

Savoring a Traditional Spanish / Catalan Lunch

To end a day packed with adventure, nature, history and culture, we will settle down at a local restaurant and enjoy a delicious meal of the local cuisine. It’s anyone’s guess, whether it is the rich aroma of sizzling meats or the tantalizing scent of a freshly cooked paella, your taste buds are sure to be in for a treat of a lifetime. And who could forget a nice glass of local wine or a refreshing cold beer to wash it all down? A heart-warming, belly-filling way of enjoying the hospitality of the locals while connecting with your fellow adventurers.

How many people will there be per group?
Each tour will take up to a maximum of 8 people.

What if I am unable to swim, can I do this?
You can still join us on the hiking part of the tour, however, we are guides not swimming instructors so if you cannot swim, you may have to sit the snorkeling part out.

Do I need to be an experienced snorkeller/hiker?
Not necessarily! We’ve had many different client profiles on the tour, ranging from children to 80-year-old first-timers who’ve joined us and have had a great time! Just keep in mind the walking distance is around 5Km and sometimes with no shade.

Where do we keep our stuff during the activity?
Please only bring with you essentials needed for the activity. We will be taking everything with us, so travel light. We will have a secure dry bag for your valuables when we’re on the water.

What should I wear?
Wear comfortable walking shoes / strapped sandals or sneakers. Dress appropriately for the season. Feel free to bring sun protection such as hats and glasses etc. If you are planning on swimming, come with your swim wear already under your clothes.

What should I bring?

  • Drinking water, good footwear that you don’t mind getting wet. Water shoes work great.
  • Sun protection (Hat, glasses and sun cream).
  • Anything else such as a waterproof camera and snacks is OK.

Where are we going and how will we get there?
We will take a private minivan up the coast towards France. It’s about 1 hour and 15 minutes through the Catalonian valleys. We will start in Sa Conca and finish in Sant Feliu de Guixols.

How fast do you walk? Will I be able to keep up? Will I get bored moving too slowly?
Our pace depends on the group, but we generally take our time. We should have plenty of time to reach our destination so we’ll keep things moving, but of course won’t leave anyone behind!

Will we go into caves?
If we have time and the conditions are great we will, but it’s not a priority on this tour, you can check out our Kayaking and Snorkeling tour which does include caves.

Will I get wet?
That’s up to you! Only if you decide to jump in the sea and/or it rains of course! It’s all part of the fun. However, the degree to which you get wet depends on the day, and snorkeling is not compulsory, you can chill out on land while the rest explore.

Can I just come along for the hiking not snorkeling?
Yes, of course. If you don’t fancy snorkeling, you can stay on land, sunbathe on the rocks, relax or explore the area.

Can I just come along for the snorkeling, not the hiking?
No, to get to the snorkelling spots we need to hike first ;). This is mainly a walking / hiking tour! that includes some snorkeling / swimming.

Will I see any wildlife?
Yes, we will hopefully see lots of animals in their natural habitat. Of course, this depends on the sea conditions of the day. However, we hope to see Octopus, Moray Eels, Cormorants and lots of other kinds of fish and birds.

Is the sea cold?
This tour only runs all year round, however, we recommend only snorkeling during the summer months. During the winter, we will concentrate more on exploring the area.

What can I bring on the tour?
We recommend bringing as little as possible. Feel free to bring a waterproof camera and a bottle of water. If you have any medication, diabetic snacks etc., then we can provide a waterproof bag.

Who will be taking me on the tour?
One of our experienced and highly trained guides will lead you and your group on the tour. Each guide has extensive knowledge of the area and is trained in water safety and first aid.

I’m already in Costa Brava, can I meet you directly there?
Lucky you, and yes. Just email us before booking and we will send you the address, parking info and itinerary. We will also be able to give you a discount if you ask for a discount code before booking.

Do you have weight , size or age limits?
Unfortunately yes. Minimum of 12 years old or 135cm tall.

What’s the snorkeling like in Costa Brava?
Well, don’t expect the Mediterranean to be like the great barrier reef or the red sea. However, it can be very rewarding playing with an octopus and getting up close to a Moray Eel. Every day is different, and we sometimes get some unexpected visitors such as Stingrays.

Where is your office in Barcelona?
We are an office-less company, that way we keep our overheads low and can pass these savings onto you.

Do I need to tip my guide?
Tips are never expected but always appreciated 😉 No, but seriously this depends on you and whether you feel comfortable with tipping and feel that it has been earned!

Don’t just take our word for it!
