HIGHLIGHTS
  • Visit two of the most popular villages in Costa Brava
  • Explore in the beaches, narrow streets and stone houses of Tossa de Mar
  • See the beautiful architecture of Lloret de Mar
Explore the coastal region of Catalonia during this nine-hour, guided tour and discover the southern part of Costa Brava during a visit to two of its villages. The coast earned its name due to its rocky, rugged coastline composed of small coves surrounded by pine forests and lapped by crystal water.

Its natural wealth and beauty is apparent in several territories and protected areas such us Cap de Creus, the Emporda Marshes and the Marine Reserve Medes islands. The fame of Costa Brava is also due to its villages. Small fishing towns with whitewashed walls and narrow winding streets still retain the charm of a by-gone era.

This tour leaves Barcelona, every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 8:30 am. We recommend that you arrive at the starting point about 15 minutes earlier. We take the motorway to reach Lloret de Mar (the journey takes one hour and 15 minutes).

You have about an hour to explore this colorful village with your group and tour guide. Enjoy great views of its beaches. The two small hills on both sides of the beach promenade provide privileged viewpoints of the surrounding areas. Walk through its narrow streets, which still are reminiscent of its recent maritime past. Find plenty of shops to suit all tastes: from the latest brands to the typical beach bazaars. Admire architectural jewels such as Saint Roma Church, known for its exquisite modernist style. Inside the church is a 16th century altarpiece that is still well preserved.

At approximately 11:30 am, you will take a DofiJet boat to the neighboring village of Tossa de Mar. Admire the unique and characteristic landscape of Costa Brava: a procession of huge cliffs that have been shaped into fanciful forms over centuries by the sea and wind.

You will reach the village of Tossa de Mar, considered the pearl of Costa Brava, at about 12:15 noon. Enjoy its spectacular sceneries, from its shores, beaches and caves in the cliffs to its lush vegetation.

History, too, has left its footprints in this area, from the Romans in Vila Romana dels Ametllers, one of the most important villas in the ancient Roman province of Tarraco, to the emblematic fortified old town of Tossa, which was listed as an artistic-historic monument in 1931 as it is the only remaining fortified medieval town on the Catalan coast. Little is left of the original, 13th-century structure as today’s ramparts are the result of several restorations undertaken throughout the years, especially that one dating from the late 14th-century.

On arrival in Tossa de Mar, you can start your walking tour from the beach, following the fortified perimeter up to the lighthouse on the top, from where you can appreciate stunning views of the coastline. While descending, we suggest that you follow the narrow streets past stone houses to reach the fishing district. You have some free time for lunch if you want to.

This tour comes to an end at around 4:00 pm. We will drive you back to Barcelona and drop you off at 5:30 pm.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How many days are enough for Europe?

    You can spend a couple of months exploring Europe and still feel like you have not seen everything. Generally speaking, a two-week Europe trip should be just enough if you are looking to cover its major highlights. However, if you want a comprehensive travel experience within this duration, it is better that you focus on a region or a few countries rather than traveling all over the continent. 

    Choose a single country or schedule your trip around a handful of cities in different countries. While larger European cities may require three to four days to explore, you can get around smaller destinations in a day or two. Planning your trip around a particular region will cut down your travel time and save your time in transit.

  • How much does a tour to Spain cost?

    The duration of your stay, the type of accommodation and services you wish to book, and the activities you want to experience play a key role in determining the costs of your Spain vacation. On average, 7 days in Spain, including accommodation and meals, can cost anywhere from USD 1,000 to USD 1,800 per person. Hotel rooms can start from USD 49 per person, per night and go upward of USD 209, while a meal at an inexpensive restaurant can be had for around USD 12. A meal in a decent restaurant can cost upward of USD 20 per person.

  • What are the best things to do in Spain?

    Salamanca during sightseeing tours. You can take in the picturesque landscape of rural Spain either on a driving trip (for example, through the Basque Circuit) or while hiking through its meadows and mountains. Experience the rich culinary culture of San Sebastian, considered by many to be the culinary capital of the country, and discover the dunes of Doñana National Park during a safari trip. 

  • Is Spain a safe country for travelers?

    Generally speaking, Spain is a safe destination to visit. It is considered among the top ten safest countries in the world. However, locals advise that you exercise the same kind of caution you would anywhere else. For example, avoid walking alone in dark alleys, be aware of scammers and follow the instructions of your tour guide. Learn more.

  • How do I plan a 15-day trip to Europe?

    If you are planning to visit multiple countries, you should prepare a tentative list of destinations you are interested in. If it is your first trip, stick to major cities and cultural centers for the sake of simplicity and convenience. Also, be flexible and optimize your travel time and budget. Be open to changing your itinerary depending on schedules and ticket prices.
