What is ENTIRE COSTA BRAVA 220km CHALLENGE?
Here is a plan we've been thinking about since a long time. Let's hike the complete trail along the wild Catalan coastline: the Camino de Ronda! From its start at Roca de Sa Palomera in Blanes to its northernmost point in Portbou, there are more than 220km. We're going to go through it in several weekend stages! You can sign up for all the stages to complete the full challenge but you can also sign up for the stages that suit you best depending on your availability.

About these 2 stages: Sant Feliu de Guíxols to Begur
On day 1, we'll start at Sant Feliu de Guíxols hiking north through beautiful coves like Cala Belladona, Cala Cap Roig or Can Cristus among many others. Once we get to Palamós we'll go to the most beautiful beach in that town, "la Fosca", where we'll stay in a beautiful hostel on the seafront.
On the second day we'll keep on going with our stage of our challenge and we'll continue along the Camino de Ronda heading north until we reach Begur, one of the most beautiful villages of all Costa Brava. There we'll take the bus back to Barcelona.
Difficulty: easy-intermediate. Routes between 6 and 8 hours each day. The distances are pretty long but the gain of altitude is reasonable.
