During centuries the smugglers have been avoiding the border between Andorra and Spain, crossing the Pyrenees using the worse and most difficult off road tracks, closed forests and deep rivers to be not catched by the border policemen. This has been an audacy history that is still living somewhere.
The contraband route is still living for the people who wish to cross the Pyrenees border line between Spain and Andorra, while living a nice adventure and enjoying from the wildest Pyrenees Areas and nice views over the mountains.
The Cadí-Moixeró Natural Park is located in the Pre-Pyrenees, it is the second largest park in Catalonia, encompassing the two great mountain ranges of Cadí and Moixeró and forming an impressive mountainous barrier about 30 km long. Cadí-Moixeró is a mountain territory, and its altitude ranges from 800m at the bottom of the valleys to 2,642m from the Puig de la Canal Baridana. Mountain and nature lovers will find a terrain where limestone and water have drawn a rugged.
We will discover a still wild valley, a hidden place with good landscapes where the lakes of La Muga stand out.
This itinerary is highly recommended due to the fact that we are going to cross a still wild, undeveloped and less overcrowded valley, totally surrounded by nature and where you can see, for example, the lakes of La Muga. The Llosa Valley was used a few years ago by smugglers and bandits. The routes that cross this valley were also used in their day by the farmers who passed to Andorra. And also the muleteers who transported the iron that was extracted from the mine located in the Pimorent
It is a charming medieval town, the stone houses that form it date from the 16th and 17th centuries. Several of the doors of the houses in Rupit have an inscription on the stone lintel with the date of their construction, and we must say that, although many of these houses are over 400 years old, they are extraordinarily well preserved.
The Salt de Sallent is a waterfall of more than 90 meters of altitude, the highest in Catalonia, where the water that passes through the Riera de Rupit stops.
Soft and sunny climate close to the sea side and Barcelona, fresh temperature in the Pyrenees, not too much rain normally.
Because our concept it’s unique, because we promise to do proper off road, there is no traction control, no abs, no electronics, just our strong customized Nissan Patrol “Extreme”, with springs over the axles, good torque, long travel suspension and excellent off road capabilities.
This is also an important point for us and will take special care for it.
The climate and nature from the area has given the Pyrenees a rich gastronomy based in intensive tasting of river fish, hunting meat, wild fruits and special cooking. Also, now, this traditional gastronomy has been improved with innovative and sophisticated recipes.
You will enjoy a barbecue in the mountains, good tapas in Barcelona or the best and innovative cooking.
The hotels are comfortable and charming with lots local character.
Sitges is a Mediterranean coastal town with its year-round mild climate, located in the Garraf area in the province of Barcelona, in Catalonia, Spain. Sheltered by the Garraf mountains and due to its geographical position in the Mediterranean, Sitges has a warm "microclimate" that makes it possible to enjoy outdoor activities almost every day of the year. Moreover, throughout the year numerous events take place in this beautiful town: the Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia, Carnival, the Festa Major, Theatre Festivals, The Barcelona-Sitges Vintage Car Rally, Harvest Festival, concerts ... the list goes on, however one can also enjoy simply taking a stroll along the seafront boulevard, a bike ride through the Garraf Natural Park or soak up the atmosphere of the Sitges nights on the renowned "Dos de Mayo" street.
Four kilometres of beach with a delightful seafront promenade featuring turn of the 20th century colonial "Indiano" mansions on one side and the sea on the other, makes it always a good excuse to visit Sitges.
The Montserrat massif is unique, as evidenced from its serrated ridge line of curved peaks, which give the Montserrat mountain range its most spectacular characteristic.
The highest point on Montserrat mountain is the peak of Sant Jeroni (1,236m). From this vantage point, there are marvellous views and on days of good visibility even the island of Mallorca can be seen.
Amazing place to enjoy hiking and climbing.
Penedès is a natural and historical region located in the south of Catalonia, between the pre-coastal mountain range (Serralada Prelitoral) and the Mediterranean Sea.
Penedès is a wine-producing region, the area is framed by the coastal hills of the Serra del Garraf and the higher inland mountains which skirt the Catalan Central Depression. Long considered one of the country's best wine-producing regions after Rioja, it is also one of the most ancient viticultural areas in Europe. Perhaps better-known for its Cava production, a sparkling wine which has had its own Denominació d'Origen since 1991, white grape varieties predominate, although the region also produces some highly regarded, oak-aged reds.
