Over the past few weeks, we have shared with you some of our new experiences in the countries we visit. This week, we continue with sharing our new tours in spectacular Spain.
Spain is a country that has something to offer everyone. From the mountains to the sea, the cities to the small towns, its a special place to visit. Over the past year, we spent time with our trusted guides working on some special new tours for our clients. Though our clients couldn’t travel, we were able to work behind the scenes with our colleagues. We put together some new, unique tours and experiences in our Mediterranean destinations that are great additions to a future holiday.
We are starting to move into a period where we are thinking about traveling internationally again. As such, we are seeing so many clients looking to experience a destination in a new way. The newfound respect for the freedom to travel means that experiences have a higher value over bucket lists. Our time is precious and we want to make sure your experience is unique and perfect. Hence, we are happy to offer these new tours that will let you see a destination in a unique and special way.
As always, all of our trips are completely tailored to your interests. These new tours are just an idea of what we can offer. If there is anything else you have been dreaming of the past year sheltering in place, we are happy and eager to make your perfect Spanish vacation come true!

Hike and “Be a shepard”: new tours in the Pyrenees
The Pyrenees mountain range is one of the greatest natural scenarios in southern Europe. It stands out for the impressive mountain scenery with deep valleys, amazing peaks and forests. Spring and summer are the perfect time for water sports and mountain biking! The rest of the year, there are numerous hiking itineraries to suit everyone.
Our new tour starts in Espot, a typical Pyrenean town which is the east gateway to the National Park. There you will meet your local guide and will take a 4×4 to get to the heart of the park and discover its most iconic natural heritage.
First, the route will follow a path around Sant Maurici lake. After, you will reach Ratera waterfall and Sant Maurici viewpoint. From here there is a beautiful view of Encantats peak.
After the route, you will head back to Espot. A taxi will be waiting to transfer you to the village of Isil. Here, you can enjoy a traditional lunch at restaurant Casa Pastora.
In the afternoon, you will head to the village of Gavàs. This is a small town where La Roseta de Gavàs produces its cheeses.
Second, we have a great end to the day. Our “Be a Shepherd” experience will start around 4 p.m.! It consists of a fun 1-hour stroll accompanying a shepherd and his goat herd along the meadows. The visit will finish at the dairy, where you will have the opportunity to taste the cheeses produced by La Roseta de Gavàs.
To conclude, you return to neighboring Val d’Aran, crossing Bonaigua mountain pass, to reach your hotel.

New tour: Secrets Of The Medieval Village Of Empordá By eBike
This is a fun day trip from Barcelona! In the morning meet your driver at your hotel lobby. Head to the Province of Girona, about 1 hour, 45 minutes driving, for a day of ebiking.
Halfway between the city of Girona and the coastal towns on the Costa Brava, at the foot of Les Gavarres Area of Natural Interest, there are small, delightful villages in which time stands still. Feel the essence and the lively pace of the genuine Empordà region by getting to know the people who live there. The attraction of Empordà is its countryside, its climate and the stones, but, above all, is its people.
Enjoy this relaxing ebike route that takes you through the charming medieval villages of the Empordà region. You will see many local producers and artisans along the way. The villages stand proud in their original and very distinctive sand-color walls, surrounded by almond groves in an undulating landscape.
You will ride through plains of paddy fields, a medieval village with remarkable historic heritage. When strolling through its walled enclosure, you can sense the magic in the stones that are unchanged over centuries. The Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque styles all combine beautifully here. You can admire the delicate craftsmanship of the stonemasons and blacksmiths in the windows and iron grilles and grates.
You´ll cycle along beautiful Peratallada, a medieval village declared a historic-artistic monument, and what we believe looks the most story-tale-esque. You´ll continue your route between local farmhouses, fields, woods and picturesque villages. You will reach the ruins of the Iberian village near Ullastret where you can enjoy the wonderful panoramic views over the area.
