Overview

In the north of the Costa Brava, just 48 kilometres (30 miles) south of the border with France, is the Cap de Creus Peninsula, a wonderful place where the Pyrenees mountains are immersed in the Mediterranean Sea and give life to a landscape that is impressive in its beauty: the first natural park in Catalonia.

There you will be surrounded by the sea, the sharp cliffs where waves crash, pine forests, olive grove terraces and vineyards. The presence of people is almost zero, so during the walks, you will always find peace and quiet.

  • You will have a privileged and magical view from the trails that will take you through the reserve.
  • You will be able to travel back in time, thanks to the historical richness of the region. You'll find Roman ruins, prehistoric dolmens and castles.
  • You will discover charming villages, beaches, steep coves and rocky bays.
  •  You'll walk along cobblestoned streets, traverse medieval arches and get to know fishermen's huts converted into restaurants.

    This route is of medium to low difficulty, making it ideal for people looking for between 4 and 6 hours of walking a day and with ascents/descents of up to 700 m. You do not need to have experience in walking, however, it is advisable that you are in good physical condition and that you are in good health.

    Some sections of the walk have uneven terrain so it will be necessary to climb.

    All independent walks have been planned by our Orbis Ways team, in collaboration with local authorities. Our routes have been carefully selected to provide you with a real view of your chosen destination, weather, small picturesque villages, landscapes, etc. You will receive this information in the pre-holiday package.

    Our self-guided walks give you the most flexibility. You can decide when to start and when to stop. We'll give you the walking route instructions and provide detailed maps so you can explore at your own pace, safely, and with the certainty you won't get lost with Orbis Ways.

    Since the walks will be on rural roads, which in some occasions can be rocky and uneven, it is essential to have good footwear. We also recommend that you bring a walking stick.

    The administration was good before our trip and our questions were answered quickly. The accommodation was also good. We had no problems with the baggage transfer too.
    Our group of 5 had a really great experience with orbis ways. Our contact person was helpful via email and via phone. Great accommodations and each host was helpful and generous with kindness.
    I travelled last week to Madeira with Orbis Ways and it has been an amazing experience. Accommodations were exceptional, and everything was explained very well, apart from that the Island is amazing, must be seen at least once in a lifetime. Dinners were very good, with local fresh homemade food! Very recomending!!!
    Excellent trip. Excellent communication with Orbis. Lovely accommodations. Luggage transfer was always done well and the overall trip was excellent. I cannot wait to do another walk in 2023 and will use Orbis ways 100%.
    Few days ago I finished Camino Francés. Orbis Ways planned the trip for me, arranged my routes and accommodations as well as luggage transfers. Everything went smoothly from the beginning in St Jean Pied du Port until the end in Santiago. Rooms with private bathrooms that they booked for me were comfortable and clean and luggage transfers underwent without mistakes. My daily routes were well planned. In 34 days I had only two problematic situations with accommodations and their 24 hours assistance team solved them in few minutes. I enjoyed every minute of my Way. I am planning to return and do some other route - Norte and Portugués gor sure. Orbis Ways will be my choice again.
    I did the wonderful walking holiday trip of 8 days Mont Blanc...the experience was incredible, from the beginning everything chosen in the dossier was beyond expectations, providing all the necessary information.I am very grateful for the wonderful and detailed attention of Jhonay. Also the accommodations chosen were very comfortable!I have no doubt that I will repeat as soon as I can, the routes are spectacular!
    Orbisways did an outstanding job of planning our trip along the Camino de Santiago. The provided voucher provided excellent information, the accommodations were awesome, never had any confusion regarding travel details and the staff I worked with prior to our trip were kind and very efficient. I highly recommend OrbisWays and will definitely be traveling with them again!!
