Situated in northeastern Spain, the Catalonia region is full of beautiful scenery. Barcelona may be the first thing that springs to mind when you think of Catalonia but there is much more beyond the city. From the Mediterranean coastline to the Pyrenees mountains, it’s home to a wide range of excellent hiking spots.
Some great hiking spots include Montserrat mountain. This mountain has a a distinctive shape with its jagged peaks. The hike to the summit is around 5 km with a modest incline. The Alt Pirineu Natural Park is another great place to visit. There you’ll be able to hike through the highest peaks in the Catalonian Pyrenees. Why not hike along the coast too? Take advantage of the beautiful Costa Brava and hike the Camí de Ronda which snakes along the coastline. The Aigüestortes National Park is the only national park in Catalonia and is filled with excellent hiking trails.
Spring is mild and pleasant across Catalonia, summer is warm with temperatures averaging in the mid to late 20s. The autumn tends to be wet and cool and the winter is cool on the coast and cool inland, with snowfall common in the Pyrenees.
