Description

Meet your hiking tour guide and hop on an AC Minivan for a one and a half-hour drive to Tossa de Mar, located at the heart of Costa Brava. Upon your arrival and after a short briefing from your tour guide start hiking across the famous “Camí de Ronda” coastline path. This trail connects all Costa Brava towns from north to south.

Camí de Ronda will bring you to areas of majestic natural beauty that you never have imagined they existed! Along your easy trail enjoy unique views of the beautiful mediterranean sea, breathtaking cliffs hanging over the sea and small hidden coves, where you will have free time to swim in transparent waters and relax under the warm sun. Fragrances of pine trees, rosemary and thyme will follow us along the way.

The Camí de Ronda will bring you back to the Tossa de Mar where we will enjoy a well deserved 3-course lunch in a selected traditional local restaurant. After lunch, we will still have time to visit Tossa de Mar, an ancient fishermen’s village with important historical background. Explore the old town, the sole remaining fortified medieval town on the Catalan coast in good condition, dating from the 13th century. Behind the impressive city walls and defensive towers, you will find a labyrinth of narrow alleys surrounded by beautiful white houses that give to the town its true Mediterranean ambiance.
