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, and 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.

Highlights
  • Discover some of Spain’s smallest wine regions and the vintners on the cutting edge of social and environmental sustainability.
  • Walk through spectacular cliff top villages of Catalonia.
  • Witness the remarkable human feat of the Castellers - Human Towers - of Vilafranca.
  • Dine on delicious, local cuisine with Catalan hospitality.

Traveling Solo?

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.

Arrival & Departure

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.

Activity Level

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.
