Savour a different Catalonia

The scents and colours of mountains and sea

7 Days - 6 Nights

Zarzuela de mariscos', 'allioli', 'crema catalana'... Is your mouth already watering? Then you will certainly enjoy this culinary journey through the scents and colours of the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean.

From the tax-free shopping paradise of Andorra to the beautiful Pyrenean landscapes, dotted with medieval villages and dormant volcanoes. The 'other' Catalonia has a lot of delicacies on the menu. Did you know that the province of Girona, Catalonia's gastronomic centre, has one of the highest concentrations of Michelin restaurants in Europe?

But you will also get a taste of culture on this experience trip. Visit the Dalí Museum in Figueras, the villa where the artist lived in Port Lligat and impressive ruins of a monastery and castle in the Cap de Creus nature park. And of course, with that much beauty comes a nice glass of local cava. Buen provecho!
