On our Costa Brava South Tour you will be hiking the famous coastal trail called "Cami de Ronda". The rugged coastline hides unspoilt coves and beaches, ancient Iberian settlements and little fishing villages. The historical path of the Cami de Ronda was first built as an acces to fishermen in trouble, but also to control the Turkish pirates and later as a smugglers´route during the Spanish Civil War. The green pine and holm oak forests that cover the cliffs are in stark contrast with the green and blue colors of the Mediterranean. The calm and natural beauty of the Costa Brava in spring and autumn is perfect for walkers who do not mind the occassional dip in the sea.
