Selection of activities

Catalonia is a region in Spain, which represents a wide selection of unique activities. Please visit our selection of activities and get the best out of your stay!

Responsible Tourism

Living local is a great chance to make a real difference using "Responsible Tourism" which are supporting the local Catalan farmers as it aids maintaining traditional ways of living. Renovating the beautiful country homes, with a high degree of respect, stops the areas of mass tourism to grow larger and preserve the stunning scenery, wildlife and glory in Catalonia's historic buildings and precious heritage. 

Grand holiday homes

We have a extensive selection of holiday homes in Catalonia, Spain for grand groups, which create a great opportunity for a unforgettable holiday in company with more generations or friends.

The three Burricleta locations

In collaboration with Burricleta, we have selected one route from each of their three centres (one in Perafita near Vic and two near Girona, one inland and one closer to Costa Brava ), especially suitable for families with children. You can choose the closest centre to your house, but you can also make an excursion to another centre and start and end there. It is no problem as the distances are fairly small. From each centre, there are also other routes, if you want something a bit more or less challenging.

ROUTE FROM CENTRE LLUCANÉS

Difficulty level: medium. Distance: 21,7km. Average time: 6h.
Situation: Perafita - close to houses in Plana de Vic and Central Catalonia
This route is going out and back on the same track. It doesn’t start from the Centre, so we will take care of the transport of the Burricletas, to the departure and from the arrival spot.
This route will bring you from the amazing view point “Pedra dreta” over the region Lluçanes to the River Merles, riding on a rural trail. The next part is on a very little transited local road, along the fresh and clean river, with curious river pools and small waterfalls. The interactive GPS will advise you about the best access spots to the River, so it is just to enjoy the scenery and stop when you feel like taking a swim, a rest or enjoy a picnic.

After arriving at the camping- a good place to eat, buy ice creams or cold drinks- you will go uphill, before arriving at the abandoned and mysterious village of Salselles, returning point of the route.

From the village the route back is always downhill and now it’s the ideal moment for a “siesta” under the fresh shade of the trees, for example in our rented hammock, before arriving once again to “Pedra Dreta”.

ROUTE FROM CENTRE PLA D’ESTANY

Difficulty level: low. Distance: 17km. Average time: 3h 30min.
Situation: Near Banyoles - close to houses in the Costa Brava/Girona area

This route is a circular one. It starts and ends at the Burricleta Centre.
This route will bring you to the area around the impressing lake of Banyoles, mostly riding on rural trails. You will pass a Neolithic Park, and hereafter you will arrive at the perfect spot for taking a lake swim. After you have been refreshed, it is time to climb up to the stunning viewpoint over the lake.

Afterwards you head towards the interesting Prehistoric Caves of the Neanderthals, which is well worth a visit. The next highlight on the route is the Espolla beach, not for swimming but for observing the amazing animal life. The birdlife is extraordinary, as well as the presence of the native horse shrimp.

You will continue and arrive to city of Banyoles, the end of your route. This is a good place to eat, buy ice creams or cold drinks or some fresh water from the many fountains or just to take a stroll in the charming heart of the city, before going back to the Centre.

The price for visiting the caves is not included and the cost is 5€per adult, children until 6 years for free. It is recommended to tell our Centre, so we can make a reservation.

ROUTE FROM CENTRE GAVARRES

Difficulty level: low. Distance: 36km. Average time: 5h.
Situation: Near Banyoles - close to houses in the Costa Brava/Girona area
This route is a circular one. It starts and ends at the Burricleta Centre.


This route will bring you to some of the most charming and lovely villages in the area, riding on rural trails, passing by fountains, ancient water channels and hot thermal water. You will start to ride among beautiful rural farmhouses until you will arrive at the stunning “Lupiana” Tower, an ancient fortified mansion made in Gothic style.

Afterwards you head towards the interesting area around the authentic ancient village of Sant Andreu, where the time seems to stand still and here there are good spots to make a picnic or a rest. After the break, the route will cross the old railway path to arrive at the thermal village of Caldes de Malavella. Here you can discover the curious fountains in the village, as for example one with hot thermal water. You can also visit the two thermal water Baleares (Spa), good places to eat, buy ice creams or cold drinks under the fresh shade in the gardens, or just take a stroll in the old part of the village with its water canals.

The last part passes among small shaded forested areas until arriving at the cultural interesting hermitage Sant Vicents, with nice overviews, from where you will go on the “green bicycle” trail, before ending at the Centre.
