Hiking on the Costa Brava and in the hinterland of Catalonia

The northeastern part of Spain is not only surrounded by fantastic sandy beaches and numerous sights, but also with a breathtaking natural landscape that can be experienced by hikers and mountain bikers. On the Costa Brava and the other bays of Catalonia, visitors can expect a relatively flat landscape, which is, however, interrupted by inconsistent mountains and elevations. The Catalan coasts of the coast are characterized by extensive meadows, old pine forests, steep cliffs and hidden bays, where the activists can rest and refresh themselves.

The more hikers then penetrate the Landesinnere, the more extensive the majestic mountain ranges, until they reach with the Pyrenees over 3,000 meters. They expect a variety of landscape impressions, which they sometimes reach on easy, sometimes difficult hiking routes.

Along the coastal region of Costa Brava, for example, the GR-92 long-distance trail runs. It starts in Portbou near the French border in the north of Catalonia and runs mostly along the coast to Ulldecona not far from the border with the neighboring autonomous region of Valencia. From here, the mediterráneo, also known as Sendero Mediterráneo, continues to Andalusia. However, the three sections on the Costa Brava are one of the most beautiful in the entire route. The starting and ending points of the individual stages are Port de Llançà - Estanys de Vilaút, Romanyà de la Selva / Cap Roig - La Casanova and Lloret de Mar - Pla de Gelpí.

In addition to the beauties of nature, hikers along the route will also find some cultural treasures such as the Monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes, the ruins of the Roman Castelló d'Empúries, the traditional wine-growing region Baix Penedès, the Benedictine monastery of Sant Feliu de Guíxols, an Iberian village The Romanesque wall, the Roman aqueduct of Tarragona, the medieval town of Pals and the mill Molino del Olivar. An unforgettable view of Barcelona awaits you on the Puig Castellar.

The GR-92 trail leads mostly along old coastal paths, the so-called Cami de Ronda, is very well signposted and has a height profile with several arrivals and descents as well as some difficult sections of the route, which require a very good level of safety and condition. For more detailed information on the GR-92 hiking trail, visit the official website of the Catalan Association for Mountaineering and Alpinism www.feec.cat.

The Küstenwanderweg is one of the most popular hiking areas in the region. Thanks to its many mountain landscapes, Catalonia's hinterland has many other exciting destinations for nature lovers, many of which are under strict environmental protection, including the Cap de Creus, the Montgrí massif, the Parc Natural del Montseny, the Massif Cadiartes and the ecologically important Wetlands Els Aiguamolls de L'Empordà.
