Our best-selling outdoor experience from Barcelona is the Costa Brava Kayaking Tour & Lagoon Dipping. La Costa Brava is nature’s marvel and a simple visit does not do justice to this coastline. Join our constantly improving Costa Brava kayaking experience from Barcelona to fully immerse yourself in this environment. We will hike a famous coastal trail – El Camino de Ronda, to reach a privileged beach in Costa Brava. Kayak along the cliffs, and visit small caves and secluded bays with gin-clear lagoons to enjoy superb snorkeling and adventurous cliff-jumping into the Mediterranean Sea.
We will meet up at 8:30 am at Plaça de Catalunya in Barcelona and head north to enjoy our wonderful Costa Brava kayaking tour. You will have a little over an hour to simply rest before we start exploring.
Our adventures will begin with an easy hiking experience following the famous GR 92 (Sendero del Mediterráneo) to Sant Pol de S’Agaró. Please make sure you wear appropriate shoes to enjoy this activity.
We will gear up at Escola de Vela & Kayak, store our bags away, apply sunscreen, have a quick bite, and use the bathroom before dedicating a few moments to our funky beach stretchings. Your guide will walk you through the kayaking basics of maneuvering and safety. We use mostly sit-on-top-double kayaks for this experience. However, we can organize a single kayak trip in Costa Brava on request.
Along our kayaking route, we will enter into hidden caves and small bay areas called Calas where we will stop for brief moments to observe some marine life before continuing to the next ones.
Halfway through the kayaking portion, your guide will find the most suitable area to anchor the kayaks. You will be able to use our snorkeling gear to see through the crystalline water and safely dive from various cliffs under our supervision.
We will point out the most typical marine creatures present in the area and leisurely chat about marine conservation in the Mediterranean Sea.
After our adventurous Costa Brava kayaking tour, you will be given enough free time to grab a yummy lunch in the town, rest on the beach, or simply continue exploring on your own the marvels of this area.
You can expect to be back in the city by 6 pm latest.
