What activities can you do in Catalonia to enjoy nature to the full? The list is long and the diversity overwhelming. And the Mediterranean climate is perfect for year-round outdoor activities. So as not to overlook anything, let’s go step by step.
With your feet on the ground
In Catalonia, lovers of dry land will find thousands of kilometres of nature to explore hiking, cycle touring or mountain biking. The varying degrees of difficulty of our mountains attract an increasing number of climbers. And in winter, skis and snowshoes replace walking boots for you to slip and slide on the snow at the Catalan resorts.
Action and water
Rafting, rowing, canoeing/kayaking, sailing... In the sea or in the mountains. Catalonia has full-flowing rivers during the spring thaw, reservoirs and various Mediterranean marine resorts.
A good wind
From parachuting to ballooning or a helicopter flight, there are more and more ways to discover the country from the air. Castelló d'Empúries-Empuriabrava hosts one of the European centres of reference for parachuting and freefalling.
