Road-trip in Catalunya

Hello everyone,

I hope your week is starting off nicely! If you are following me on Instagram, you might have noticed several posts about exploring Catalunya… one week later I am still enchanted by the beauty this region has to offer and I wanted to share a bit with you!

For two years, I have enjoyed how easy it is to live in the city center: a metro station at my door surrounded by 4 cafes, 2 corner shops always open when I need it. But how good it feels and how free I felt to just pack a few essentials in a bag and go away with a car!

So I thought you might be interested to have a 48 hours road trip plan in Catalunya… En route!

First stop: Ermita de la Pertusa

Only 2 hours by car from the busy Barcelona…

Then we drove to Terradets, where we stayed for the night… and stopped for the beauty of the spot!

The next day was even more amazing.

We woke up in the fog, we could not see anything and thought we would not able to do the hike. We took the car and drove for about 45 minutes to our destination. The road in the mountains was unbelievable; as we were getting higher we could this the cloud of fog from above. We stopped a couple of times on the way to admire the stunning view.

Congost de Mont-Rebei

We then went for a hike in Congost de Mont-Rebei which is was one of the most beautiful hikes I have ever experienced. Sunny day and fresh air, we walked about 11kms (and 111floors!) and was more than worth it!

I hope this post has inspired you to go and explore more of Catalunya, especially if you live in Barcelona. That’s a chance not to missed!

I would love to hear about your adventures and if you have a place to recommend, please feel free to comment below!

See you soon,

  • Hi Laura, I follow you on IG and I can totally relate to this sentiment! I am originally from Amsterdam and moved to Barcelona at the beginning of this year; love the city, but the nature in Catalunya definitely made me fall more in love with this region! Some of my faves are Cap de Creus, Castellfollit de la Roca and lake Banyoles (looks like the Spanish Caribbean), also the historical center of Besalú and Girona are mesmerising to me. Congost de Mont-Rebei has been on my wishlist for a while, definitely want to go now 🙂 keep exploring, disfruta!

    • Hi Anouk! Thank you for your comment and for your favorite places to visit in Catalunya.
      I hope you will enjoy Congost de Mont-rebei!
