Escape the city and immerse yourself in nature exploring of the world's most famous mountain ranges, on a full-day trip from Barcelona! For a more personalized experience you can travel to the mountains on a private tour or join a small group tour with a maximum of 8 guests.
An hour outside of Barcelona you will arrive in the ancient town of Vic. After a short introduction to the town's history in Market Square you will have free time to stroll in the city center. Explore the cathedral, featuring a mixture of styles from Romanesque to neo-classical, or relax with a breakfast in the heart of the town.
From Vic, continue up to the Pyrenees. You will briefly visit Queralbs, at an altitude of 1,236 meters and the last vehicle-accessible village on the way up to your mountain valley destination.
This tiny mountain village has a population of only 200 permanent residents living in a rambling collection of traditionally built stone houses. In this town perched on the side of the mountain, you will be able to see the Church of Sant Sadurní de Fustanyá, built from stones so perfectly-hewn that legend says it was built by the fairies and witches said to inhabit the surrounding caves.
From Queralbs, take the last 6km of your journey on the rack railway up to an altitude of 1,964 metres and into the stunning mountain valley of Vall de Núria. Ask the guide to show you the hiking routes, there's something for everyone - from the hard and strenuous to light and easy.
You'll have plenty of free time to hike well away from the valley and truly experience the solitude of the mountains, explore the valley town or choose to try one of the many other activities offered in the town including horse riding, open air bowling, archery lessons, crazy golf, or boating on the lake.
