Pyrenees Mountains Small Group Day Trip from Barcelona
US$114.58
Overview
Revel in the incredible mountain scenery of the Pyrenees Spain on this hiking day trip from Barcelona, with an experienced guide. Travel through the charming villages of the Pyrenees’ foothills by minivan, and ride a rack railway to the gorgeous Nuria Valley, a vision of green pastures and peaks overlooking a jewel-like lake. Drink in the setting and crisp air, and enjoy time to follow the hiking trails, go horse riding or boating, or visit a traditional restaurant. Numbers are limited on this small-group tour for a more personalized experience.
What to Expect
Put on warm clothes and sturdy walking shoes, and meet your guide and the rest of your small group in central Barcelona. Hop inside your air-conditioned minivan and journey into the countryside on route to the Pyrenees.

As you travel, hear tales of the region’s history from your guide and pass Montseny Natural Park, a protected region of mountains, forests and high moors.

After roughly an hour, make your first stop in the quaint market town of Vic. Enjoy free time for breakfast (own expense) or to explore the medieval center, with its picturesque market square, cathedral and Romanesque and neoclassical buildings.

Back aboard your minivan, continue to the stone-built mountain village of Queralbs; the last point on your route accessible by road. Leave the minivan, and accompanied by your guide, ride the rack railway up to the Nuria Valley. Home to a lake and bright green pastures ringed by high peaks, this picturebook valley is one of the most beautiful in the Pyrenees.

Admire the scenery from the train, and on arrival, enjoy several hours to explore as you wish. Perhaps follow your choice of the hiking trails suitable for different fitness levels, such as the paths up to the Valley Coma de Vaca. Although a good physical fitness is not a prerequisite of this tour, a reasonable level is required if you wish to take the Coma de Vaca trails.

Alternatively, take your pick from the local activities (own expense) such as horseriding or boating, or enjoy a meal (own expense) at one of the traditional Catalan restaurants. See the Itinerary for details of the activities available.

When the time comes, return to Barcelona where your trip ends at the start point. 

Please note: Annual track maintenance on the rack railway from Queralbs means that the line is closed between Mondays and Fridays from November 1 to November 30. On these days, the tour will run to an alternative itinerary that involves accessing the mountain valleys by road or hiking at a lower height. These changes will in no way take away from your Pyrenees experience.

What a day !

Our guide was Diego and he made the day, friendly, very knowledgeable, confident and a good driver. There is no tour like a small group with a great guide to very scenic places. We covered a lot of ground into Vic (great spot for lunch)...More

Beautiful Day

This was a great tour of the Spanish countryside. You do spend quite a bit of time driving, but that should be expected for how far out of the city you will be driving. The mountains were beautiful, and the stop in Vic was the...More
