Satuday: If you’re an early riser join us for a brisk morning walk to Parc Guell … beat the crowds and the tourists and catch the sunrise as it peeks over the city.

Return to the hotel in time for an evening pilates class then prepare for your dinner out.

Sunday: Sleep in, enjoy a light breakfast before a morning Pilates class. Prepare for an afternoon of exploring the city via Modernist tour…find all the hidden corners of Barcelona!

We have scouted the best of the best and will bring you to meet the people who handcraft shoes, clothing and artwork in various media. Return to the hotel to prepare for a local dinner. Our restaurant tonight reminds many of ABC Kitchen in NYC … à la Barcelona.
Monday: (Weather permitting) Breakfast. Dress for your hiking excursion (weather permitting) as we head into the Catalan countryside. Enjoy a hike to a spot that feels like the top of Catalonia; we will have sightings of local wild boar and many farm animals that roam the countryside such as sheep and cows. The hike is about 2 hours, not difficult, and boasts gorgeous views. After the hike you will be met with a picnic lunch to soak in the views and sunshine before returning to Barcelona for an evening yoga class. Prepare for dinner and we’re off to yet another special restaurant… (It’s been around since the 1800s and is still going strong)
