You'll spend the night on the Costa Brava, and thanks to your rental car, the entire region of Catalonia is at your feet. Want to relax? Let your mind wander in Pineda de Mar, Tossa de Mar and Calella. If you feel like soaking up some culture, take an exciting day trip to Barcelona, Girona or Stiges. No matter what you want, there is a lot to experience in Catalonia! But there's one activity that the region is especially well known for - and that's food and drink! On this culinary journey you will visit a Cava winery and taste 2 types of Cava with the traditional Catalan pà amb tomàquet (bread with tomato) and Catalan sausages. You will also take a Catalan cooking class with a starter, a main course and a dessert, and there's plenty of delicious food to eat on this holiday. From pa amb tomàquet, bacallà amb samfaina (fried cod) or crema catalana (similar to crème brûlée), this trip will certainly leave you feeling sated!

The Costa Brava (Spanish for "wild coast") is perhaps one of the most beautiful sections of the Mediterranean. In the north are the Pyrenees, and the Catalan capital Barcelona in the south, while in between, you'll find 60 km of beautiful beaches with jagged rocks. A dream for adventurers, photographers and water sports enthusiasts alike! Between picturesque fishing villages and lonely bays lies Canet de Mar, where the coast of the Costa Brava is tamed with flat sandy beaches. Let yourself be seduced by the Mediterranean scent of rosemary and thyme bushes and taste the salty air, while watching the beautiful sunset on the beach.
