Day 2 Calella de Palafrugell to La Bisbal
Travel to Mount Ras, from here you have a choice of two routes of varying distances. Both options take you into the Gavarres hills and through the medieval villages of Fonteta and Vulpellac. Your final destination is the Hotel Castell d’Emporda, your characterful home for two nights. The hotel boasts lovely views across the plains from the poolside terrace.
Day 3 La Bisbal
You may wish to simply relax by the pool today. Alternatively, follow a circular walk passing through the pretty villages of Corca and Monells. Take time to explore the historic alleyways before heading back to your hotel. If you’d like to explore further afield, local buses go to Girona and Figueres.
Day 4 La Bisbal to Begur
Today’s walk is across the Emporda plain, stopping first at Peratallada, one of the most beautifully preserved medieval villages in all of Spain. Continue through sunflower fields to Pals, a lovely historic village with a Romanesque church. The final stretch is through a cool pine forest to your hotel in the old town of Begur.
Day 5 Begur
Today is at leisure to explore the fashionable hilltop town of Begur with its pretty, narrow streets and 11th Century castle. Alternatively, it’s a short journey to the coast where there are four beautiful sandy coves to explore on an optional circular walk.
Day 6 Begur to Calella de Palafrugell
Follow a shaded forest path to the seaside town of Tamariu and its fantastic beach. From there, pick up a pretty coastal path, passing rocky headlands en route to Llafranc, where you can enjoy spectacular views from the San Sebastián lighthouse. Llafranc makes for a pleasant lunch stop before continuing to the botanical gardens at Cap Roig.
