Mish and Kirk trip around Catalonia
Last October we organized a fantastic trip for Mish & Kirk, a couple from Australia. The purpose of their trip was to get to know some of the most interesting territories in Catalonia and enjoy a romantic experience. At Premium Traveler Barcelona we designed a totally personalized trip to enjoy Catalonia with the 5 senses and without having to worry about anything. In total the trip lasted 9 days and they toured the regions of Barcelona, Girona, Costa Brava and the Priorat. In each destination they stayed in exclusive hotels, visited very interesting places and lived unique experiences. Thanks to the fact that both of them are very good photographers, we are lucky to have a large part of the trip illustrated with beautiful photographs. Keep reading…
The first two days were in Barcelona. In addition to visiting the Sagrada Familia, they toured the Gothic Quarter, the Barceloneta Beach… and traveled to the Montserrat mountain, where they hiked with an expert guide. During their stay in Barcelona they also had time to relax on the rooftop of their hotel, El Palauet 5 *, located in Paseo de Gracia, the most emblematic avenue in Barcelona.
After 2 days in Barcelona they traveled to Costa Brava. There they stayed at Hostal La Gavina 5 *, a hotel with a beautiful location facing the sea. During their stay in the Costa Brava we organized various activities and private experiences such as sailing through the crystalline waters of Costa Brava or enjoying an electric bike tour through the medieval villages of the region… we also managed reservations in the best restaurants in the area to savor the best local cuisine.
The next destination was Girona. They stayed at the Hotel La Fortaleza 5 *, a hotel that had been an old fortress and has now been transformed into a space where art, gastronomy and architecture merge. During their stay in Girona, in addition to relaxing and enjoying the hotel, they discovered the old town of Girona (one of the most beautiful in Spain), visited the medieval town of Besalú and flew over the Natural Park of the Garrotxa Volcanic Area in a hot air balloon, the best way to bask in the natural beauty of the craters of the sleeping volcanoes.
The last two days were spent in the Priorat, a wine region located south of Catalonia. There they stayed at Hotel Terra Dominicata 5 *, a hotel fully integrated into the landscape and designed to enjoy the scenery. During their stay in the Priorat they visited small wineries where wine of great quality and international reputation is produced, as well as other beautiful villages of the area such as Siurana or Escaladei.
Premium Traveler Barcelona was responsible for organizing all the details of the trip. From the design of the itinerary to the choice and reservation of hotels, guides, boat or bicycle routes, restaurants in each area, etc.
Mish & Kirk were amazed and surprised. They did not know that Catalonia was a place with such an interesting natural, cultural, gastronomic richness, and that in such a “small” territory there could be such an impressive diversity of landscapes. They are already looking forward to returning.
