Over 30% of the Costa Brava & Girona Pyrenees is classified as protected countryside and there are 8 natural parks in the region, going from the depths of the sea to 3,000-metre-high peaks. In an area like this, it’s not surprising that ecotourism, with its focus on observing, discovering and preserving nature, and working with local companies that share these values, should have such prominence and provide so many options for gaining an insight into the region’s biodiversity, tradition and local produce.
The local guides and companies are the best ones to tell you about the region.
