Travel through the Pyrenees is a feast for the eyes and a treat to the senses. I mean that in every way. The food, the drink the company and most importantly the scenery will give you sheer pleasure every day. We had the opportunity to travel through some of the most beautiful landscape in Europe as part of the blogger trip “#InPyrenees” with the Costa Brava Tourism board. They made sure that we saw everything. Days were jam packed from morning until night where we rode horses and donkeys, segways and ebikes. We drank wine and more wine, ate cheese and more cheese and ate so much cured meats that we started to actually start to cure a little bit ourselves! It was two weeks of absolute indulgence and in the process we took some pretty amazing photographs.
It’s amazing to witness just how close this mountain range is to the coast. At times, you can see the coast from the mountains and at others, you can see the mountains from the coast. One minute you feel as if you are deep in the middle of the mountains far away from civilization until you are reminded that you are only a couple of hours away from everywhere.
We were transported from untouched medieval towns to trendy boutique hotels, quiet resorts inaccessible by road to Michelin rated gourmet restaurants. The Pyrenees has it all. One need not vacation anywhere else when they choose to visit the Costa Brava region of Spain. You can be on the coast one minute basking in the sun or hiking an ancient trail along a mountain pass the next. It is a destination that has something for everyone.
