Enjoy a non-group,self-guided walking holiday in Catalonia, on which you walk from one characterful hotel to the next while your luggage is transported. We provide you with a map and our much-praised route notes; the pace at which you walk is up to you.
Walking in Catalonia is always enjoyable, thanks to the pretty villages and varied scenery, not to mention some of the best gastronomy in Spain. Ours are Slow holidays, so take time along the way to admire the wildlife, detour to a viewpoint or call in at a vineyard. There’s no luggage to encumber you, and, with no group, it’s you who sets the pace. You can trust us to select delightful accommodation and to provide accurate route notes to direct you there, so relax and enjoy…
You can rely on Inntravel to have found the best walking Catalonia (Catalunya) has to offer. Walking holidays on the Costa Brava and in Empordà promise a combination of medieval villages, Surrealist art and time by the sea, while the Garrotxa offers scenery of wooded volcanoes and ancient stone settlements. For high-mountain scenery, make a beeline for the Pyrenees.
