Nature for all tastes
If your thing is natural parks and fresh air, then you must come to Catalonia. More than 30% of the territory is protected to preserve natural ecosystems. One of the most spectacular protected areas is Aigüestortes and Estany de Sant Maurici National Park, with more than 200 lakes and majestic mountains. Winter or summer, any season is a perfect time to visit it.
You can cross Catalonia from north to south and from west to east. If your goal is to put your boots on and walk in unspoilt nature, here you’ll find itineraries that are just right for you or your family.
Catalonia has a long cycling tradition. Some of the big names in professional cycling have come from Catalonia, but there are also many amateur cyclists who go out on weekends for a ride with friends. Mountain biking is also very popular.
And if you’d like to practice adventure sports, the Catalan Pyrenees are one of the best places. Equip yourself and go canyoning down one of the many gorges. During the spring thaw, the Noguera Pallaresa River becomes a white water paradise for rafting.
You’ll be spoilt for choice for activities to enjoy in nature. Because Catalonia is nature and your home from home.
