Escape the urban multitude and set-off on an 11-hour day-trip to the Catalan Pyrenees. Marvel at the area’s bucolic landscape while you explore the beautiful Nuria Valley, Catalonia’s cradle of mountain sports.
Begin your excursion to the Catalan Pyrenees by boarding a comfortable air-conditioned coach at 8am from central Barcelona. Sit back and enjoy the scenery during the two-hour journey.
Upon arrival, you’ll enjoy nature in its purest form and revel in the mountainous scenery with high summits, lush valleys, streams with crystalline water, capriciously steep rocks and picturesque villages.
Discover the cultural and artistic heritage of the villages of the Catalan Pyrenees, while you admire unique Romanesque churches and abbeys. Visit the Benedictine Monastery of Santa María de Ripoll, renowned for its scriptorium and monastic school.
Next, head to the impressive Nuria Valley, in the heart of the eastern part of the Catalan Pyrenees, on a typical cogwheel train. You’ll marvel at the beautiful views over the valley while you sit on the train and spot the Virgin of Nuria, a Catholic shrine, perched nearly 2.000 meters high surrounded by devastating summits.
Before returning to Barcelona, you’ll have free time to take part in some of the activities that make Nuria Valley a favorite destination for the most adventurous. Some of the most-popular activities include horseback riding, archery, canoeing on the lake, and many others.
You’ll be back in the heart of Barcelona at around 7pm.
