Take a day trip or an over-nighter outside of Barcelona and head to the Pyrenees Mountains. Just a short drive away from the city, you'll embark on charming villages while being able to hike, explore, play and take in spectacular views.
The first stop on the journey is Vic, a quaint little town with a market and cathedral. You'll then head to Queralbs and Nuria which delve further into the Pyrenees where you'll be able to hike, horse back ride and even go boating. The Pyrenees mountains provide for full, active and incredibly fun day trips, that will give you a nice peaceful break from the city.
