About Adventure in Barcelona

Barcelona is sandwiched in between the Mediterranean Sea and the steep hills at the back of the city, meaning that your escape from the hustle and bustle is just a short train ride away. The temperatures can really soar in the summer months, but even then the morning or late afternoon is a perfect time to set off on an excursion.

Hiking

The idiosyncratically-serrated Montserrat is so revered by locals that some parents name their daughters after it. It forms part of Spain's first national park and provides several trails for hiking or climbing to its peak of 1200m.

Walking Routes

The Collserola Park, distinctive due to its telecommunications tower designed by Sir Norman Foster, is the world's largest metropolitan park. There is a gentle two-hour walk around its perimeter.

Running

The locals are mad for running! Numbers of participants in the marathons and half-marathons increase every year, and runners in training can be seen every evening taking advantage of the ample boulevards of Avinguda Diagonal or Passeig de Sant Joan.

Swimming

Clearly the sea is the first option for anyone wanting to take a dip, and if the Barceloneta beach is too crowded for your taste, take the train north to Badalona or El Masnou to enjoy a cleaner and less tourist-saturated experience.

Gyms

Barceloneta offers a free public gym space complete with a variety of facilities to keep you in shape while you're in town.

Biking

Barcelona is a very good city for getting around by bike. It is relatively flat, rarely rains and has bike lanes along several the principal roads up and down and across town.

Unfortunately, the Bicing bike-share system is only offered to residents, but there is no shortage of companies who will rent you a bike. Many provide tours, or if you prefer you can show yourself around.

Yoga

Free Yoga Barcelona hold the largest open-air classes in the city by the Arc de Triomf.

Parks

The Parc de la Ciutadella is a beautiful location to have a stroll, a picnic, play some ping-pong or take a siesta.
