Find your hiking route

Book
The Catalan countryside is more enjoyable on foot. To do so, you have at your disposal an extensive web of pathways with 5,000km of long-distance trails (GR) and another 4,000km of short-distance and local trails.

Hiking and trekking are part of Catalan culture. People practise them in the mountains, on the coast and in the forests all year round. In Catalonia it is very normal to use the pretext of going out for a walk in order to enjoy a leisurely day out with friends or family. You can also incorporate culture and history, like on the Cister Route, and fine food and drink on the Oliba Trail. Many hikes culminate around a table enjoying typical Catalan dishes.

Specialists in hiking.


This passion for hiking has also spread across a network of businesses and accommodation which specialise in providing activities which respect the surrounding environment. Here is a selection which bear the Hiking in Catalonia label, a mark of confidence from the Catalan Tourist Board (ACT), which sets a series of essential quality requirements that each company must meet.

A variety of hiking trails

From north to south and east to west, hiking routes crisscross through all four corners of the Catalan territory. Each itinerary shows you a new side to nature and the region's habitat. You can choose long treks which cross natural parks high up in the mountains, staged routes or trails which take in the coast.

With so many options to choose, you can follow an itinerary which perfectly suits your idea of a good hike.
