Excursions

  • Blanes and its Botanical Gardens - Half day excursion to the port town of Blanes, where fishing still is an important part of the town's economy. We visit the interesting botanical gardens which are nicely situated on a hill, high over the port of Blanes, where fishing boats and recreational yachts are side by side. In Marimurtra, which is the name of the botanic garden, there are 16 hectares of tropical and subtropical plants and trees from all over the world. On our tour through the garden we'll come across fountains with drinking water and benches to rest on. Several places there have wonderful views over the port of Blanes and the Mediterranean. Before we leave Blanes there will be time for a walk in the port or on the beautiful promenade with many possibilities for lunch.
  • We enjoy a free day in our resort, hit the beach and take it easy.
  • Santa Clotilde Gardens and Tossa de Mar - Santa Clotilde Gardens are beautifully located on a cliff with great views over the Mediterranean. The main landscaper, Nicolau Rubio, followed his master Forestier, but adds his personal touch: The design is soft, austere and based on the Italian Renaissance. It is a pleasure to the senses and there are some great photo opportunities. After the gardens, we make our way north up the Costa Brava to our next destination: Tossa de Mar. Once we reach this pretty village, we take a walk in the old quarter including its medieval castle. The narrow streets have great opportunities for lunch and people watching. We make our way back to our hotel in the afternoon.
  • Barcelona, capital of Catalonia – After breakfast, we will be using our coach to take us on a panoramic tour of this beautiful capital. In the morning we shall be seeing some of Gaudi's masterpieces along the Paseo de Gracia boulevard and we will include a stop to view arguably the most famous building in Spain: the impressive and recently consecrated Sagrada Familia. Continuing with the Gaudi theme, we make our way to Park Güell, where the master combined to perfection his architecture and nature. Apart from exuberant bougainvillea and atmospheric palm trees, Park Güell offers stunning views over the city. Once we have finished our panoramic tour, we return to the centre, and after some free time for lunch, we will regather for a walk in the old town. Las Ramblas is possibly one of the most famous streets in the world, so we will be having a stroll and taking in the wonderful atmosphere of this most cosmopolitan of Spanish cities. Barcelona thrived in the 13th and 14th centuries and we will have a good insight into the Gothic quarter. We will walk through its narrow streets and characteristic little squares, while your guide will be pointing out the main sites this charming area has to offer. We will then meet our driver at the designated point so we can go back to our hotel for dinner.
