The region of Catalonia in Spain has a long history of doing things their own way. From the distinct languages to the autonomous legal standing within Spain, the area surrounding and including Barcelona in Northeastern Spain has forged its own unique traditions and culture. Join us as we venture into the Catalonian countryside. We’ll discover unusual wines, fantastic food, unmatched hospitality, feats of human wonder, spectacular scenery, and meet the people behind the natural and biodynamic wine movement. We begin and end in Barcelona, but our focus is on discovering the culture, customs, and products of the oft-untouched gems of the wider Catalonian region.
Gastro Obscura Trips: inspiring wonder and curiosity about the world through food and drink.
The listed price of the trip is per person based on double occupancy.
You’re in good company. Solo travelers typically make up about half of our small groups. With curiosity at the center of our experiences, there’s a natural camaraderie that develops over the course of a trip. We have two options for you:
Shared Room: You’ll be matched with another solo traveler of the same gender.
Private Room: Have your own room, subject to availability, for a supplemental cost of $980. After booking your trip, please request a private room when you fill out your traveler information form and we’ll add the option to your booking and final balance.
You should plan to arrive in Barcelona by 3 p.m. on Day 1 and make your way to the group hotel near Plaça Catalunya. You are free to depart anytime on Day 7.
If you're booking on the October 2022 departure, consider arriving early in Barcelona and joining our Barcelona Behind the Scenes trip.
Travelers should be comfortable staying on their feet for long stretches at a time and walking up to four miles over the course of a day. We'll be out and about most of each day, with time to rest at lunch and dinner, both of which take place on the later side in Spain.
Joining this trip directly supports the unsung heroes of the vineyard—hardworking, independent people who, through their daily working life, are working towards sustainable practices and to preserve local traditions embedded in wine and food. Aside from the financial support that comes from your trip fees, you can contribute to the preservation of community spirit and memory by sharing the stories of the places and people we visit, and honoring the traditions we encounter along the way.
Most dietary restrictions can be accommodated, though in most cases ingredients can't be substituted or omitted from particular dishes. If you have a severe allergy, please contact us to find out if this is the right trip for you.
Visa requirements for Spain vary depending on traveler citizenship. Please check requirements for travel to Spain and any countries passed through in transit. A passport is required for international travel. We recommend your passport expire at least six months after your return home.
