Catalonia is Calling…

Last updated: Jan 30th, 2019

From the natural beauty of the Costa Brava coastline to the bustling city of Barcelona, a tour to this Spanish region offers the best of both worlds.

With fantastic accommodation options located near the beach on the Costa Brava coastline and the city of Barcelona situated just an hour away, it’s no surprise that Catalonia continues to be a popular option for school trips. Its diversity lends itself to a range of subject tours, including geography, art, business studies, food technology, music, sport and, of course, Spanish!

A popular option for language trips, the great thing about this region is that most of the locals are bilingual, speaking both Catalan and Spanish, so it offers a great insight into the variations of the two languages. Your students can hit the big Barcelona tourist spots, such as Las Ramblas and Park Güell, but make sure to veer off the well-trodden path to explore those quieter streets and cafes where the locals hang out and the authentic Spanish experience can be found.

Music groups touring to Catalonia can perform in a range of venues both in the Costa Brava and in Barcelona: with a mix of vibrant and relaxed coastal venues, prestigious cathedrals and charming churches, there are venues to suit all ensembles.

‘Excellent friendly service from a company that genuinely cares. They make you feel like a valued customer not a number!’

Kate Ives

Whilst budding geographers can study the region’s diverse coastline, its volcanic landscapes and study the effects of tourism, art students can immerse themselves in the stunning worlds of Dalí, Gaudí and Miró and sports teams can play local fixtures by the coast and take a tour of the all-important Camp Nou Stadium!

Food Technology students will be in their element – after all, no one does food like the Spanish! So integral is food in Spanish culture that you will never be far from tasty tapas!

‘The tour was really well organised which made it a great experience for the children and adults.’

Whatever your subject area, the region of Catalonia really is an all-rounder for a school trip and although parts of the region are known to attract a buzz of tourists in the summer months, we can help groups experience the ‘real’ Catalonia with visits to hidden gems off the beaten track.
