Barcelona Secret Forest Adventure - Nov 8
More Info

Departing the conference center promptly at 9:30am, you'll discover an incredible natural area in the outskirts of Barcelona on a an excursion through Barcelona’s green lung, the Collserola Natural Park. We will soon arrive at the top of the spectacular Mount Tibidabo. From here you can admire the views over the entire city of Barcelona and out to the sea. After spending some time taking in the impressive vistas, we’ll take a few minutes to visit the beautiful Templo del Sagrado Corazón de Jesús (the Temple of the Sacred Heart), which was built between 1902 and 1961 and is right at the peak of Tibidabo. Once you’ve had your share of the amazing city views, we’ll leave the bustling metropolis behind and your guide will lead you into the tranquil natural park of the Collserola.

The light hike through the forested trails is easy and extremely pleasant. It’s hard to imagine that you are so close to a huge city! Along the way you’ll learn about the flora & fauna of the area, as well as about the history and culture of Barcelona, Catalunya and Spain. We’ll pass under the Torre de Collserola (the Collserola Communications Tower), which was built for the 1992 Olympics and is the highest “building” in Barcelona, at 288 meters (945 ft.) high. Your guide will be equipped with delicious snacks to be enjoyed at an interesting stop along the way.

At the end of our trail, we’ll come across a restaurant housed in a traditional 16th century masia (stone farmhouse) where we’ll enjoy a fantastic lunch of classic Catalan fare. One more chance to keep learning about local culture, while enjoying the food, the wine and the views (all the way to Montserrat, the “serrated mountain”, if the weather is clear)! Lunch will be followed by a short and convenient downhill walk to board our transport back to the conference center. Estimated return time is 4:30 PM.
