35 things to do and see with a theme of Barcelona Catalonia Hiking.

Catalunya has incredibly green natural parcs. Unlike the southern parts of Spain (which are a savannah type landscape) the natural spaces have much greater bio-diversity with some beautiful forests, mountains and delta's.

On this page I have included train or bus accessible walking routes for all levels of hikers.
