We did the sea kayaking tour. Was great fun. Stepan is a great guide, full of information and knows the best spots to kayak around the coves and bays and do some pretty thrilling cliff jumping. Fantastic day out, highly recommend it.

Loved the kayaking and lagoon dipping tour! We travelled to barcelona for the first time and wanted something different to do than only in the city. Costa Brava is amazing. Overall amazing trip. The driver and guide, Stephan, is very funny, such an awesome guide, very knowledgeable, friendly and followed safety precautions. We were in a small group of 6 individuals so we could enjoy and also ask questions and recommendations for good foodspot and other activities in Barcelona easily! I would definitely recommend!! Rate this tour 10/10.

Stepan led me and my partner on a wonderful kayaking experience in Costa Brava. He made us feel a lot more comfortable than we otherwise would have been in the conditions. He was very agreeable and made sure we had a great time. Would go on another excursion with Stepan any time.

A return trip to Montserrat park, this guided tour is most enjoyable way to spend a day away from the town, surrounded by nature and breathtaking views, carefree, and comfortable. Stepan is the best guide, knowledgeable, professional, experienced, made sure everyone’ s having a pleasant time. Looking forward to return soon for more hiking tours around Barcelona with Worldadventour.

Amazing experience!!! We went to Sant Pol for a kayak tour, our guide Stephan was so professional. He explained us everything we need to know before going on the water. The tour was gorgeous, we visit hidden places, caves... the sea was flat that day so we enjoyed even more! We hope to come back again in the future!

Find The Perfect Adventure
From Barcelona

Outdoor Barcelona

Barcelona benefits from its privileged location on the Mediterranean coastline and near the Pyrenees. There are also dozens of urban parks and green areas to explore in the city and more yet to come. This is a perfect city to take part in a seasonal water sport, enjoy hiking near Barcelona, or try other local outdoor experiences.

 

The Collserola Natural Park and the Montjuïc Mountain are right at the top of the list for size, points of interest, and great viewpoints they offer to residents of Barcelona.

However, for the very best outdoor activities in Barcelona, you should consider leaving the city for a day. You will not regret it!

 

Day Trips from Barcelona by Train

You can get around Catalonia using a fairly reliable public train system called Rodalies de Catalunya or hire a car and have the freedom to explore the hidden gems we will give you now. 

 

Hiking around Barcelona

Probably one of the most popular outdoor experiences from Barcelona is the Montserrat hiking experience which follows narrow trails leading to breathtaking vertical drops and stunning panoramic viewpoints. This symbolic and mystical mountain attracts big crowds as well as many locals who want to live the spiritual and natural experience at the Benedictine Monastery in Montserrat.

 

There are two alternatives to the Montserrat hiking experience. Both places offer equally rewarding panoramic views with fewer tourists. Sant Llorenç del Munt Natural Park and Montseny Natural Park provide a beautiful natural area for a great hiking experience from Barcelona. The parks are an hour’s drive from the city center.

 

Our expert recommendation is to buy a topographic map for either park from Editorial Alpina. You will find these hiking maps in any decent bookshop in Barcelona. The map will become handy when you lose the cell phone reception.

 

Before setting off check the weather forecast one more time, and last but not least don’t forget to bring your hiking shoes or boots to Barcelona to have the ankle stability and grip needed for the ups and downs.

 

Pyrenees Mountains from Barcelona

For more daring and experienced hikers the Northeastern Pyrenees boasts an extensive array of high-mountain hiking trails with mountain huts to satisfy the most demanding explorers. The three most famous Catalan high mountain circuits include Carros de Foc, La Porta de Cel, and Cavalls del Vent. These three circuits represent a multi-day trekking that often requires careful planning.

 

Andorra, the Catalan Pyrenees, and Pyrénées-Orientales usually become accessible for the multiday trekkings from late May to the beginning of October depending on the snowfall throughout the winter. 

 

Costa Brava Adventurous Activities from Barcelona

Another amazing and partially protected natural area in the Northeastern part of Catalonia is Costa Brava. It offers a whole bunch of adventure and water activities just an hour’s drive from Barcelona. Costa Brava day trip is almost like a ‘must-see-and-do’ outdoor experience from Barcelona.

 

If you can squeeze it into your busy travel plan it will be the single most memorable experience from your holidays in Barcelona. The beauty of the rugged coastline, deep turquoise lagoons, and striking green pines provides a beautiful contrast to somehow tiring Barcelona city sightseeing.

 

If you visit Costa Brava from May to October don’t forget to bring swim clothes and a snorkeling mask. Diving into the gin-clear Mediterranean Sea and snorkeling amongst underwater crevices is a fantastic outdoor experience alone. Just don’t expect to see any dolphins or whales as they have learned to stay away from people.

 

You can also find multiple companies renting sports equipment right off the beach in the main summer season. This will typically include some SUPs, kayaks, wind-surfs, foils and kite-surfs.

 

Having the option to kayak along the wild cliffs in Costa Brava. And finding hidden bays and lagoons to swim in, cliff jump and snorkel is one of the highlights of our kayaking tour.

 

Barcelona Outdoor Experiences for Young Adults and Colleagues

Barcelona is a great place for a party. A combination of a wide range of clubs and music scenes, reasonably priced drinks and meals, and mostly good weather attracts thousands to celebrate a lifetime event.

 

Add a special touch to your Stag Party or Hen Do in Barcelona by sharing a great outdoor experience on a day filled with laughs, good vibes, and everlasting memories.

 

Are you coming to Barcelona to attend a conference or to work? Do you and your colleagues have a free day to enjoy yourselves? Give us a heads-up right here if your company has any special requirements. We will be right back with a dream outdoor experience for your party.

 

Nature-Based and Wildlife Experiences from Barcelona

Catalonia encompasses one National Park (1), fourteen Natural Parks (14), and sixty-four Natural Reserves (64).  Even though most animals and wildlife prefer to live a nocturnal life an expert guide should be able to point out some exciting details and tell a captivating story.

Our expert guides continuously expand their knowledge and it is their utmost passion to share the natural wonders with their clients on any outdoor experience.
