What to expect

Be transported from the hustle and bustle of the busy Barcelona, to one of the most breathtakingly beautiful stretches on the Mediterranean coastline in Europe - the Costa Brava.

You'll be driven one hour north to the Blanes - the Gateway to the Costa Brava. See one of the few remaining coves on the coast that have avoided the crowds of tourists and big commercial developments and are known only to locals. Enjoy a secluded swim in the crystal clear waters or walk along the rocky shoreline.

From here you can choose to stay on the beach for the next two hours, or leave the sand for another day and explore the famous botanical gardens. The botanical gardens are home to a wide variety of exotic plants, but it is the amazing views from high up on the cliffs that makes this stop an absolute must.

A typical Mediterranean lunch will be awaiting you in a local restaurant. Your feast will start with a selection of traditional local dishes and a glass of Sangria, followed by a choice of main courses.

After lunch walk on the cobble stone streets of Tossa de Mar to the lighthouse, featuring a backdrop of the Costa Brava coastline. From the highest point of the town, you'll wander back down through the old town before dropping into a maze of narrow streets lined with traditional whitewashed houses and shops.

There's plenty of time to browse the local souvenir shops and boutiques, or relax with a drink in one of the many quaint bars lining the streets. Spend a couple hours of free time exploring Tossa de Mar before arriving back in Barcelona at 6pm.
