What you can expect

Step outside of the city for a day and go on a journey in the countryside of Barcelona. As soon as you leave the city, it will be like a completely different atmosphere. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city and once you are off the highway, Catalonia quickly becomes very rural and it is easy to believe you are in another time.

Let me introduce you to the authentic local side of the country with a nice combination of scenic routes, beautiful scenery, insightful local history and of course good company. This basically is how I spend my weekends!

For your day trip, I got you covered! I will pick you up at your hotel or anywhere else in the Barcelona area in my car and we will leave the city for the day. Once you have left the city behind, the road becomes more and more scenic. But first, coffee! Take a short pit stop and recharge to then continue your trip towards the medieval town of Rupit.

What makes this experience incredible is the fact that along the way to the town of Rupit, you will encounter beautiful sights. Before reaching Rupit, we will cross a large reservoir lake and discover the waterfall that the Rupit river creates when it crashes off the cliffs just outside the town; at 115 meters altitude, this is the highest waterfall in Catalonia.
In Rupit you will visit the old town center and check out the famous "embutits", dried sausages typical to the Catalonian cuisine. Enjoy some sightseeing and if you want to, I can customize the experience to include a local lunch. Then comes a view you cannot miss! I'll drive you along the cliffs above the reservoir of Sau to a breathtaking lookout point. Here you will have a little snack and some wine while you enjoy the view!

While you wander around, I will make sure to answer any question you might have as well as to provide you with important & entertaining information throughout the whole experience.

With a comfortable drop off at your stay, your day in Barcelona's countryside will be just perfect. I can make it even better, if you let me know any requests you have beforehand. Let's talk and see you soon!

11 years ago I moved to Barcelona because I fell in love with the city's unique vibe: Barcelona is a big city that feels like a small town. And then there's the food and drinks, that give a Mediterranean sauce over everything....

Right from the beginning I also began exploring the region around the city, and I quickly discovered it has so much to offer. From vineyards to beautiful beaches and from old fisherman's towns to medieval mountain villages. And the best thing: each little corner of Catalonia has its own typical cuisine.
In my tours I want to show you my Catalonia, the Catalonia I have come to know and love in these 11 years of exploring, the places I personally love and visit in my spare time. I love the local history, the overwhelming beauty of the country and the immense views that are sometimes just around the corner. Also, I like to go to authentic bars and restaurants, without too much fuss, and usually without too many other tourists."
