Come to discover the most beautiful corners of Empordà and Gerona!
We have planned to provide all our visitors with full-day tours to make the most of it and get to know the most beautiful corners of the area.
Most tours are quite intense, therefore, if you wante to make more relaxing days it would be better to make a selection or split the route in two days.
