A dramatic coastal mountain region of remarkable natural beauty and diversity, Southern Catalunya is mysteriously unknown outside of Spain. In the mountains, limestone crags with well-established paths overlook the orange and olive groves perfect for day walks with a long-distance path that runs along the coast for those wanting to walk a little further. The walks all vary in difficulty, from coastal trails to hands-on scrambles, but all are clearly marked at the start of each route for route finding, scrambling and exposure.
The region has not been greatly visited by walkers from the UK, as it is not obvious from the general tourist maps that it even has mountains yet with its benign winter climate it is ideal for walkers from October through to May. These day walks boast spectacular scenery including salt and freshwater lagoons surrounded by wildlife, high mountainous regions as well as stunning coastal trails.
