It might sound strenuous to some, but walking holidays are a fantastic way to see the sights, ensure a little exercise counteracts good food and wine, plus you’ll probably be mixing with nice, like-minded people.
Ramblers Worldwide Holidays is one of the known experts in guided walking adventures across the globe and the operator is offering a one week holiday in Costa Barcelona. Ramblers is also a not-for-profit company and contributes monies to the Ramblers Holidays Charitable Trust which supports environmental projects both here and abroad.
Here you’ll be able to enjoy national parks, extensive vineyards where the area celebrates with the Cavatast wine festival in October, as well as over 60 miles of spectacular coastline, culture, tradition, gastronomy and of course vino – essential ingredients in this part of Catalonia.
Highlights of this walking holiday include the village of Sant Sadurni d’Anoia, the capital of the Penedès and famed for its Cava; the rugged limestone landscape of El Garraf Natural Park, home to a wide variety of flora and fauna; the beautiful coastal town of Sitges with a great beach, promenade, iconic church, cafes and restaurants; and optional visits to historic Tarragona and Barcelona.
The price is from £760 per person and includes return flights, transfers, half board accommodation and the services of a dedicated tour leader. Departures from 1st October 2015.
