Framed by the Pyrenees and gloriously remote feeling, northern Catalonia has many different faces. Within a relatively short distance, the secret hills of the border with France give way to a more gently rolling landscape coated with olive groves, vineyards and woods of cork oak. At the coast you discover yet another scene – rocky coves, sandy bays and rugged headlands. Thanks to this variety, each day reveals new scenery and far-reaching views.
We had got there the ancient way, the way of pilgrims through the centuries, the proper way – we had arrived here on foot, the climax of five days of hiking across rugged mountain and windswept vale, through olive groves and vineyards, past prickly pears and wild garlic, stopping only for refreshments.

There is a real sense of discovery as you descend from the picturesque foothills to the Mediterranean and Cadaqués, surely Catalonia’s prettiest fishing village, from where you can walk to the headland which gives the beautiful and dramatic Cap de Creus Natural Park its name.
This is one of our most varied and rewarding walking holidays, with the accommodation fittingly as diverse, a delightful mix of stylish hotels and welcoming inns.
